Let me spin you a yarn.....


So by some amazing luck, fortune, kismet we know folks who know folks and then it turns out we know more folks and have more in common than we first thought....

Rita's dear friend Joyce wanted to make us some socks...not just any socks, but very special socks mind you. So she goes online and finds a spinner/dyer/sock yarn person near us as she is in Burlington Iowa. She then sends us the contact information and we made arrangements to go "pick out the yarn" at Lisa Souza's. She has the most beautiful selection of all kinds of yarn.

To wrap up this tale, we now have new friends in Placerville and if you are into hand dyed, handspun yarn, sock yarn, etc. we will be happy to have you stay with us and spend time with her too! As a bonus, her husband is into trains--so we had lots to chat about.  And one of her customers stays with us every Thanksgiving!  Small world...

Here is the photo of us cuddling our soon to be "socks" as she has shipped our yarn to Joyce already.
