My Finnish Friend
Well, they did come! We had a lovely visit, petted yarn and looked at pins together, and talked about Irma-Riitta's daughter, who is a knitter. I tried to convince Irma-Riitta herself to pick up her needles once again, but my powers of persuasion fell sadly short. :g:
And where do you suppose they were going after their stop in Windsor? Muir Woods! :) I thought it only fitting to show Irma-Riitta in the original Muir, which, I understand, her daughter quite likes.
Happy New Year, Irma-Riitta and Gene! It was wonderful meeting both of you. :)
Edited to add a NEWSFLASH: Saara (Irma-Riitta's knitting daughter) comments that her mother has picked up her needles again! Yay!!! That's excellent! :) Thank you for writing, Saara!
