Utah 2012, Part the First

It’s high time I told you about my trip to Utah, right? It was, in a word, fantastic. I saw beautiful foliage and scenery, I hung out with Margene and Smith, and I met Kym for the first time. I suppose you’d like some details. And pictures.

I arrived late on Thursday night and was picked up at the airport by Margene, Kym and Suzy. It was too late to do much of anything except hang out for a while before bed and that’s just what we did. Margene and I have  been good friends for years now but to say that Kym fit right into our circle of friendship would be an incredible understatement. It was like we’d known each other forever, just like the first time I met Margene. I was pretty sure that’s how it would be but it was awesome to feel so comfortable so quickly.

On Friday morning we had breakfast at Silver Fork Lodge, of course, followed by a walk around Silver Lake. Kym and I took lots and lots of photos of all the gorgeous scenery while the 3 of us talked and talked and got to know each other better.

The aspens were beautiful and positively glowing on the mountains. The colors are quite different compared to fall foliage in New England but throw those colors on a mountain and who cares if they are mostly yellow.

Margene took us up, up, up and over Guardsman’s Pass and then down, down, down into Park City. We then headed into Salt Lake City where we visited Blazing Needles, and I got some Madeline Tosh for Wandering the Moor. While we were there we all fell down for a cute kit for a Leftie Scarf. We had dinner that night at Red Iguana, where I ate fantastic mole and drank delicious local beer. After dinner we headed back to Margene’s where we hung out and chatted and made our plans for the knitting retreat.

And with that, I shall leave you until tomorrow . . . to be continued . . .

    What a fantastic time! Those yellows and golds are pouring down the mountain. I love the contrast with the deep green of the pines.

    It was so much fun to have you both here. Everything was perfect, the weather, the company, the Retreat. I miss you much more than I thought I would.

    Lovely photos. And I’m sorry to tell you, but I have fallen in love with Leftie and will no longer be sending you my sock yarn remnants!

    The Aspen photos are spectacular. I love the Aspen but would also love to see New England in the fall. Some days with the knitting homies are priceless!

    Sounds like a great time! I had never seen the Lefite Scarf before but think it is an adorable way to use up some ends. Might have to give that one a go some time.
