I looked back at the postings about the Knit-Out at Mall of America and I realized I didn’t show you Purl as Queen of the Mall. So here she is, one last time.

Knit-Out 2008: Pictures Part 1

Knit-Out: the day before

We arrived at the hotel, right across from the Mall of America. Traveled through Iowa where there was a lot of open space and snow.    I’d post more pictures but they all pretty much looked the same.  Open space and snow.   Did I mention it was cold there is a lot of snow???? Anyway, passed […]

Knit-Out in one more day

Left Kansas City yesterday with temps in 40s. Arrived in Des Moines where there is snow everywhere and temps near 0.  As I look at the weather map the further north we go the colder it gets. I don’t think I will be moving up this way any time soon but I am excited for […]
