Kim arrived on Saturday with a big smile on her face and jumped out of her car to give me a big hug. We passed hugs back and forth from all our Blogland friends and quickly headed off to meet Susan for lunch. Again the feeling was that we had been long time friends which is nearly true. Kim's Everyday Cardi KAL was one of my first and so we have 'known' each other since my first days of blogging. Lunch was full of fiber talk, laughing, enabling and just joyful grrlfriend time.
Kim and I spun together every chance we had on Saturday. We helped each
other out of knotted messes while comfortably chatting and encouraged
each other in our newly found passion of spinning.
Sunday we had to take her to Silver Fork and Silver Lake and invited Laurie and Camille along to enjoy the day. As we strolled along the board walk we spotted a moose laying down, nicely hidden in the willows, only his antlers peeking out. (He's there, honest.) It was cool and comfortable in the mountains with large rain clouds building up overhead and a nice cool breeze. It was very hot and humid in the Salt Lake Valley so it was so nice to be in the cool mountains.
Smith enjoys wonderful women and felt very comfortable with his chatting, entourage of 'wild', independant women. As I said to Kim...'It takes a might fine man to be better than none'. And Smith is just that...might fine. He snapped pictures of us when we stopped and helped me with a photoshoot of the Vinatge Victorian Socks (details later). Susan had asked that I take a photo of the beautiful yarn she spun last week. This is a skein of singles that turned out to be beautifully spun and perfectly balanced, and because she didn't love the color, she gave it to me. What a lucky grrl I am to have so many generous, caring friends in this world where the landscape is second to none.
