Visit with My First Knitting Guru

A little while back I had the chance to spend the afternoon with one of my dearest friends, Lisa, who now happens to live a couple thousand miles away or so -- but we grew up next door to each other in a suburb of Milwaukee, and she taught me to knit, for which I am forever grateful. Here is one of her most recent projects:
hedgie the hedgehog
I think it's very cute, and that is on my "want to knit" list of projects.

Here is Lisa, with my DD, at the SF Ferry Building, and in this photo you can sorta see Lisa's very nice felted bag:

And here they are at the gate to Chinatown:

where we also saw this protestor standing on a stool and loudly proclaiming something or other:
Street Protester

We also ate a ton of dim sum, bought some bangles and beads, ice cream and tea, and generally had a swell time.

Love you, Lisa! It was a great day.


  • Fabulous summary Annie!! And on June 28th no less -- my second birthday...where I sit back, enjoy the long summer days, and remember other great June 28th's.

    Hedgie might be getting a sister soon. Leah and I are biking to the yarn shop this afternoon to find yarn to make another one -- for her best friend Emma, who has a birthday soon. I'll send pictures of the twins, once the second one is complete
