Clara Parkes! At Purl Diva! Today!

She’s a hoot, I really enjoyed gabbing with her… and we (not the royal we, I had a friend with me!) learned that if we ever meet Ann Budd, we should get her liquored up, and she’ll be even crazier (there is a story involving a pen and signing a body part). We also learned that Clara’s cat may be a bit intellectually challenged. But nice…

We also learned that wearing soft and lovely Cormo may make a bystander pet you, and you can say, oh, feel it up higher, and get a massage!

We went to Brunswick by way of Lisbon, meaning we saw Amy, who is having a store-wide sale that she’s taking on-line… I may have bought some yarn there (for a secret xmas project) and a book… But I got Clara’s book at Ellen’s!

And a rather expensive cup of coffee in Brunswick (because I had to have the mug)… I don’t have one that fits in my car’s cupholder, and look, made in the US, how great is that? Mostly it’s the little dog that got me…

There was also lunch at the Frontier Cafe, which was absolutely FABULOUS!

It’s in an old mill building, right on the Androscoggin River, and the food and beer is incredible!

I love the bells around my neck… they were a fundraiser at the convenience store in Lisbon. I chose carefully, based on how the bells sounded!

(yes, that is my finger in one of the photos above… and it looks like there is something on my lens….)

    Well, knowing it was Clara you were going to see, I suppose it’s understandable you didn’t make it down this far. That and the snow, of course. Looks like a fun day.

    Woo hoo, never wash those mittens! (Is that weird? After a bit of thought, I think it is. Forget I said it.)

    It was lovely meeting you! To help you decide whether or not to wash those mittens, I’ve decided to get cracking on my next book: The Knitter’s Book of Infectious Diseases.

    Cool mug, and yes, the Frontier Cafe is great! We’ve been once – will need to do it again —
