Knitting Through Seattle

After we took our alpaca shearing seminar, my hubby and I spent a few days sightseeing in Seattle and the surrounding islands. The first day we took the ferry across to Bainbridge Island and while there I stopped by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas. What a cool shop! Lots of inspiration there. Darrell patiently waited reading outside while I shopped inside.

We went up to the top of the Space Needle. We had some time to kill so while Darrell was walking around reading everything there was to read and looking through the telescopes, I got in a bit of knitting.

When our reservation came due, we had dinner in the restaurant in the Space Needle. That was alot of fun! The restaurant revolves around so you can get a good look at the whole city. And do a little knitting.

We took the Underground Tour. What a story! I didn't do any knitting but took a picture of my scarf on a huge cog. The first picture of this blog is from the tour, also.

I love Sci-Fi, so we went to the Science Fiction Museum and this is my knitting on a prop from the Battlestar Galactica series. I have been a big fan of that show and so has my knitting, as you can see.

This isn't knitting, just a fun picture I took of a telephone pole outside the museum of my adding my paid sticker to the 'wallpaper' already there.

The last day, we went whale watching. We took a seaplane out to San Juan Island and spent the day there doing tourist-y things and went out in Canadian waters to see the Orcas. That was fantabulous! The weather is so different there from here at home. I wore my alpaca scarf almost every day and it was June!

We did have one glitch, though. Taking my knitting everywhere as I did and giving it such an important voice in our trip, made her a little arrogant. She got full of herself and decided she could fly the plane back to Seattle from San Juan Island! I scolder her, gave her a good talking to, and made her sit in my bag for the rest of the trip home. Give 'em an inch...............

But all and all it was a wonderful trip! I worked on three different alpaca projects, running out of yarn on each one so starting a new one. I now have 3 WIP's (work in progress) which isn't helping my New Year's Resolution average but keeps me busy. Now that I'm home I am back to spinning so I can finish them. Now to just catch up on the barn chores.....

Talk to you soon,  Tammy
