Road Trip - Reno


Thursday, just as the sun was beginning to rise, three of my knitting buddies arrived at my house. Bags were loaded into the back of the vehicle, and our 12+ hour drive began - destination Reno, NV and the Fall Knit and Crochet Show.

The drive went quickly, as we changed drivers every two hours and stopped only for bathroom breaks and quick snacks.

Knitting needles clicked, errors frogged, and conversation flowed as the vehicle rolled its way across Wyoming, Utah, and Nevada.

After we checked into the casino hotel and refreshed up a bit, we met one of Julie's Ravelry friends for dinner.


Nancy and Julie were pre-registerd for two classes, so they spent most of Friday in classrooms. Cheryl and I wandered the vendor's area, petted yarn, admired finished projects, and pondered purchases. Then, we spent most of the afternoon visiting and people-watching in a quiet corner.

  7. What fun! The last I rode tripped with knitting friends it was to Baltimore - 2.5 hours - in a rented minivan, with four other women, to Stitches East. I look forward to having time to do trips like that again.

  9. I'm still rather amazed at how fast the time went as we cruised to Reno. I like the picture of the vendor area. It brings back good memories of looking at all those beautiful yarns in stunning colors.
