We finished all the work that needed to be done to close the house and off we went. Bye bye Desert and dry HEAT!!
On the way out of Phoenix we were so close to a LYS and I convinced K to stop and let me roll around in the yarn..
The shop was full of needlework, and yarn. The shopkeeper doesn’t have a website or anything to do with the internet yet she sells Signature Needles. I tried my first pair. They were way lighter than I thought. Not bad.. but not totally amazing, I thought the points would be sharper.
I purchased 3 skeins of SOCK yarn.. and love them… gonna post pix on KP.. The red, white and blue yarn is from Prescott. More on that shop later.
We started driving North, planning on visiting with a friend in Prescott for the evening and thought that the next morning we would head out, but we were having such a great time, we were invited to spend the weekend, and since we want to take it easy and spend as much time as possible checking out this magnificent country, we accepted happily.
Prescott is a lovely little town with some beautiful old Victorian homes and Painted Lady homes. It has a great town square that has festivals and art fairs surrounded with artsy fartsy shops. Love Prescott..
SO off we went driving up Rt. 17 only to dead stop halfway to Prescott because of a terrible accident. We waited over an hour for it to be cleared.. I can only hope that everyone in the accident was able to walk away!!!!
We arrived to cool weather (about 30 degrees cooler) among the pines..
Our friend has a magnificent home in the woods of Prescott with a babbling brook running through the property.
We slept like babies in a room that comes straight out of a B&B, and haven’t stopped talking since we walked in.
We spent the day out driving around (with the windows open, would you believe???) Stopped in a great yarn shop right near her home.
It was full of serious weaving, spinning tools. She even had sheep wool before it is processed. She couldn’t wind it because there was a class going on (weaving), so K will have to help once we get to FL.
We will start traveling again come Sunday toward Albuquerque and spend a few days in Santa Fe.
