Goddess Knitters

Madrona, monkeys and mayhem.....

So off on Amtrak we went on Wednesday to Tacoma. Madrona was finally here! I don't know who was more excited, the goddesses or the monkeys. We were in for some great classes, good food, wonderful wine, fabulous knitting and spinning and outstanding friends! We were not disappointed by anything.










Hotflash stores her needles in her "flashy" new hairdo!




There was a "horse lamp" in the lobby and we could not keep the monkeys off of it!


































There were some spills, but Etta Mae was there with the Tide to Go!








































Etta Mae, Tiny Dancer and Hotflash hangin' with the home knitters.







The monkeys made many new friends...............



















and tried there hands at knitting!




I was lucky enough to take an all day sock class with Lucy Neatby herself and WOW! The next day I was in an all day Worsted and Woolen Spinning class with Paula Shull. By the time I got done with the second day of classes my little bitty brain was very full!

All in all, we had a great time and were tired by the time we got on the train for the ride home on Sunday.


But those monkeys still had enough energy to clown around a little on the train.....


























...and again at the station at Portland. You really have to keep an eye on them!
Now, on to Stitches West...............
