On the Road Again...

Off to Durango tomorrow for a business/road trip. We are driving tomorrow to Albuquerque and staying the night then driving Thursday morning to Durango (about 3 hours.) Looks like it's snowing like crazy in sporadic places, so we'll see how it turns out. May be a long drive. But I'm really excited, I love Colorado and it sounds like there's a lot of cool stuff to do in Durango.

Found a really cool looking yarn store in downtown Durango called Yarn! that we really want to visit. Looks like there's a tea bar and a cool yarn selection, might be fun.

We are also going to ride on the Durango/Silverton Railroad and visit these hot springs. Sounds fun, I've never been to natural hot springs before.

Trying to pack and decide what projects to take... Haven't decided yet. I started a scarf, simple garter/yarn over pattern out of chunky Wool Ease. I really want to make a summer tank, looking at possibly Soleil from Knitty. I just saw Erica's blog today (dangerous, by the way, she makes gorgeous stuff very quickly) and she has started a really cute version of it. I actually bought several skeins of Paton's grace then I swatched it, it came out grossly off measure (22 stitches, 33 rows should have been 4" square but was more like 3 x 5.) So I'm not sure what the solution is, if the yarn's just not right for it or what. Any advice, seasoned knitters?

Durango, have camped and hiked there in years past. Love the area. Have fun!
Just wanted to pop in for a visit, and say hi. Please do the same.
I too would recommend the spas...felt good to us after hiking.

one of my best friends from CA has a daughter going to college in Durango. I read about all her adventures all the time on her blog. Can't wait to hear your take on Durango (from a different perspective!)
