Travel and Progress

Sorry it has been so long since I last blogged. 
I just returned from a General Federation of Women’s Clubs International Convention in Charlotte, NC.  It was great seeing and catching up with friends from all over the country. 
Five of us went on a side trip to a few wineries of Yadkin Valley about an hour above Charlotte. We tasted great wines at Laurel Gray winery and had a wonderful lunch at Shelton winery. 
Laurel Gray is a small estate winery that only sells their wines at the winery. The workers were so friendly and helpful. We had a great time.  I purchase a bottle of their  Encore  and  a bottle of their Nectar.

Shelton is a large winery covering over 500 acres of which around 300 are covered with vines. The restaurant at the vineyard served a gourmet lunch overlooking the rolling hills. Delightful. 

On the way home, I stopped into Charlotte Yarn, where I met Remi and Sandy. Two welcoming and knowledgable ladies who were happy to help me find some souvenir yarn and other things. I found Knit Cubby Stitch Markers that I had only ever heard of on Etsy and some knitting podcast. They are well made and quite different. 

Remi is holding the stitch markers and the game Last Knitter Standing which is great for clubs and guilds. Thanks, ladies for a great experience.

A Big Thank You goes out to Suezee who nominated this blog for the  Liebster Blog Award.  Guess I had better get cracking with blog posts more frequently.
My first woven scarf is finished. I used Berroco Comfort with a little linen yarn occasionally mixed in. I may be hooked. Weaving is so much fun! and quick!
My Split T top down summer sweater has made a little progress.  Need to finish the body, bottom edge and sleeves.
Time to get knitting.
Until next time . . . . .
