Friday Photographs

It has been a busy week with dyeing, house hunting and just a dash of knitting... though I would have wanted to knit more, as always. 

This week: 
- Two new colorways were created: "Chrysoprase" & "Peach Pie" for the April Yarn Club
- I knitted a partial wedge on my Exploration Station shawl
- Failed to record a new episode of Yarn in my Coffee, will catch up next week!

Friday Photographs

I'm starting a post called "Friday Photographs" that recap my week of adventures and random photographs I take that have given me inspiration. I've been falling in love with random photography again and thought it would be a fun post for the blog.

Coffee and Knitting

Yay! So on Saturday I made the plunge to finally join the Desert Yarnies knitting group and I had an absolute blast! I actually joined the group about 8 weeks ago, but I had yet to actually join them in person... to be honest, I really think nerves were to blame. Since going to my LYS to knit and doing the weekly podcast, I have noticed that I'm coming coming out of my shell a lot more!

I for sure plan to meet them every Saturday now, they were all super nice and fun to chat with and I met some new friends!
