I promised one last post before we hit the road. Our special visitors last week were none other than Francesca of Slow Knits (formerly Fluffbuff), and her sweetie, Ben. They were doing a tour up the Pacific coast and stayed here for a couple of nights. We ate, drank, and showed them the local sights. Here are a few photos:
We took the ferry over to Bainbridge Island, for lunch and a little foray to Churchmouse Yarns. Yes, it’s summer here. In their defense, it was only in the 60’s, and windy on the ferry deck.
That’s Francesca and I knitting on the ferry crossing.
We went to the World Spice Market in Seattle. We almost had to drag Francesca out of this place.

We foraged for dinner at Pike’s Market.
Ahhh. Relaxing after dinner! It was way too short of a visit, but they had more stuff to see on the way back down the coast. It’s always fun to meet someone in real life that I’ve “known” for years through the blog!
We’re off tomorrow for Scotland. We mostly have the itinerary nailed down, just a few details to plan as we go along. We’re flying in to visit friends in Manchester, England for a few days, then take the train to Edinburgh. We’re taking Ernie (the Mac Air) along with us, and we should have wi-fi here and there along the way, so expect updates. I’ve already scouted out places where I might find wool along the way!
