We Are Monterey

I lived in Monterey, CA during 7th, 8th, and 9th grade.  I just moved to live with my dad and he was stationed there.  I went back to visit for a weekend during senior year, but I have never thought I'd go back.  After I made the decision to move two hours south of Monterey, I knew the first place I wanted to visit when I moved to California was Monterey.  Two months later, I finally visited, on my new bicycle.

I rode my bike all around and went down memory lane.  I went to three knitting stores.  I didn't buy anything though.  I did go to Santa Barbara on Sunday and fell in love with a knitting store there, Loop and Leaf.  I also loved Santa Barbara.  My bike and I will go and visit, and I'll buy more yarn!  I got 9 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Loft to make Ash by BT.  I already purchased Madelinetosh Vintage in the color Antler to make Ash, which I also did last summer, but the stitch pattern just doesn't show up.  I have the Tosh Vintage in my lap now, and I'm making the Rocky Coast Cardigan with it!
