I had family come in from Phoenix (and to be honest, not just any family but my most favorite cousin and her wife) and we met up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (the land of good beer and plentiful cheese) for a few days before heading up to Fond du Lac to visit more family. My cousin and I aren’t even blood related, and actually, we’re not even related by marriage anymore, but we’re closer than any two blood relatives can be and two peas in a pod when we’re together. And when you throw in her spouse and My Guy, we make quite the group. It was good times all around.
Between going to the Harley Davidson Museum, eating at a great tapas restaurant called La Marenda, and visiting Anaba Tea Room - the cutest tea room I’ve ever been to - we managed to go to Loop, a yarn shop in Milwaukee. I picked up 3 skeins of Spud & Chloe Outer in Sequoia. I also picked up this delicious Maghreb Mint chai tea from Anaba. Ooh, it’s so good. Looking forward to a night of sipping chai and flipping through the Spring/Summer issue of Vogue Knitting. I’m sure I’ll be posting my list of ooh’s and ah’s soon enough.
