Met my sister-in-law in Calistoga today. It was roasting hot too !!! In fact, we are having upper 90 degree temperatures nearly all this week , especially in Calistoga , the hottest town in summer in the Napa Valley ! You wanna know what is very odd about this post?
Meeting for c o f f e e
and giving of w o o l s o c k s
in the middle of a California A u g u s t .
No matter, because the Calistoga Roastery is one of the most bohemian nouveau places in the Napa Valley, and we always meet there when there’s something knitted to give. Oh, such as these sweaters .
Patricia loves her new wool socks,
and that makes it worth every tiny stitch !
And, as we do absolutely everytime we get together, she and I scour’d the local thrift shops.
I got to add to my collection of antique wooden hangers with the old businesses printed on them of cleaners and dye works. Dye works?
