Episode 29: Postcards (From The Edge?)

Hello from a hectic Cheshire Plain! I'm back to earth with a bump after what may well be the best holiday I've ever had. Join me as I knit at some spectacular landmarks!

Knitting on the Easy Knits plain vanilla sock at Four Corners:


And again at Monument Valley:


The "I Remember Mama" socks (my project details here) at the Grand Canyon:


And at London Bridge at Lake Havasu City:


Then in front of the Golden Gate Bridge (it is there, honestly!):


And at AT&T Stadium, watching the Giants versus the San Diego Padres.


Whilst in San Francisco, I visited two yarn stores recommended by listeners. First up, the delightful Imaginiknit on 18th Street at Sanchez. This is the animal fibre room....


...whilst this is the plant-and-other-fibres room.


Then the unique Artfibers on Sutter Street and Grant.


Feel free to leave a comment here or at http://www.yarnsfromtheplain.podbean.com/, or email me at yarnsfromtheplain@googlemail.com. We have a Ravelry group here, so come on over to chat. You can find me on Ravelry as talesfromtheplain and on Twitter as talesfromplain (although Tweeting can be sporadic!).


TTFN, Nic
