Why, Oh Wy-oming
My blog host recently added a mobile posting feature, which is awesome, because, currently, I'm pretty mobile.
Last weekend, I headed westward for a visit with my bestie/"sister by a different mister".
Long story short: she fell in love with a boy...they got married... And they're living, happily ever after, in Wyoming. You might be thinking, "¿¡Wyoming!?", which basically sums up the reaction I had when she told me her plans to relocate from sunny San Diego to... the second least densely populated state in the nation (Alaska is first). To say the least, I was skeptical. Turns out, it's pretty beautiful.
The scenery is incredible. And, downtown, while small, is charming; there are lots of small businesses and neat old buildings. Most importantly, there are TWO yarn shops!
Apparently, the town she lives in shuts down on Mondays, so we were only able to get into one of the shops. It's a new addition to her area. They, unfortunately, didn't stock any, "Wyoming" yarn. But, the owner and shop attendees were completely sweet and very friendly. I left with some goodies for the flight home, and I'm pretty sure my friend found her new favorite vice; she also left equipped with yarn and needles. ;-)
There is more trip-related knitting content to post. But, it's all trapped on my SD card until I get back to my computer. Here's a tease:

I have always wanted to travel through Wyoming. The town sounds charming, and two yarn stores - Wow! Enjoy your visit!

My mom is from Wyoming, and several of her family including her parents still live there, mostly in Laramie. She has always loved Casper. So I have spent many a summer vacation in that quiet state with frequent trips to the rodeo in Cheyenne and other family in Fort Collins, CO. Its very beautiful and the weather is certainly a fun change for this California girl.
