It all started Friday night at A Verb for Keeping Warm in Oakland, CA.
My favorite two gals, Courtney Kelley and Kate Gagnon Osborn were going to be there signing their book, Vintage Modern Knits, and I didn't want to miss the chance to see them! There was also a Fibre Company trunk show.
A Verb For Keeping Warm is a goregous space – open, inviting and inspiring. They sell fabric, fiber and yarn. They even have their own label of natural organic yarns which the owner dyes in house.
On Saturday my husband and I decided to take our first trip to Napa to celebrate our two year wedding annversary. We did a lot of this:
(Not to mention, fact that the wine is called "Three Amigos" really connected with my husband and I. Obviously where we thought Lucky Day, Dusty Bottoms and Ned Nederlender they really meant 3 of their vineyards.)
Before we headed home on Sunday we stopped at Yarns on First, a very cute shop in downtown Napa. The saleswoman was very helpful and welcoming. I highly recommending going if you're in that area. I even came home with some more yarn (shocker!). A baby alpaca, wool and linen blend called Soft Linen from Classic Elite. The wheels are turning on what to make with this!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, too!
