Nice yarn choice-one of my favorite combinations. Always good to have a map; knowing where you are is a good thing.


i am certain it will come in handy!!!

Can't wait to see the completed map, accurate or not! I love to make my own maps and love to see those done by others. You are going to have such a grand time on your retreat! If I weren't leaving on Monday on my own trip I'd be insanely jealous....

Looking forward to seeing your finished knitting, the colour is so pretty! xx


I was just reading about the Ace Hotel in Pam Springs. Perhaps you and your fellow retreaters might like to take a photography excursion to see the joint of course after you have added to your map.

Palm Springs is very familiar to me. My parents lived there and my brothers still do. It's a great place to visit. If you have the chance, have a date shake at the last remaining date palm grove left on Hwy. 111, south of Palm Springs near Coachella. OMG! Killer!

The shawl looks very similar to one I just finished/blocked in Koigu yarn. Lace and I don't get along very well. I'm always dropping off stitch or a YO and then can't fix it.

I'm absolutely map obsessed. Can't go anywhere without maps...the old fashioned kind that are impossible to refold...yes, those. To take off on a road trip without maps would send me into a state of panic. My son is the same...we love to pour over my atlas, traveling many miles sung our fingertips. I have one of those smart phones with the Google Map app, but it's not the same as a paper one.

There's a very interesting blog about a woman who uses maps to detail her life story. I'll see if I can't find the link. I'm sure you'd find it interesting.

Can't wait to see the results of the retreat and to be regaled with your stories of hilarity and mayhem.

We eat black-eyed peas also on New Year's along with greens. I love your shawl! I love Anne Hanson and all her patterns. I'm glad I found your blog, I've enjoyed reading your posts.
