I think June usually kicks my butt every year. That wonderful, crazy transition from a scheduled life to a completely different sort of day. Having all three kids home (YAY!) just makes more of everything. More food, more cooking, more laundry, more waiting, more scheduling, more traveling, more conversations, more errands, just more, more, MORE!

I headed to Beaver Creek, Colorado at the beginning of the month to meet my sister, Shelly and my friend, Kam.  It was a weekend devoted to, you guessed it... KNITTING!  Honestly, I think that everyone should have a weekend with friends/family and yarn at least once a year.  Stay in your jammies, drink coffee and knit.  Head to lunch, order wine and knit.  Jammie up early, chat and knit.  It was perfectly, perfect!
One afternoon we headed out in search of a yarn store.  We found the yarn store but it was closed.  The sign said "Closed for shearing"!  We were pretty bummed as google wasn't showing any other yarn stores in the area.  So we decided to head to wine, I mean lunch and as we parked the car, discovered there was a new yarn store right next to our lunch spot!
I immediately made myself right at home! :)  

Maker + Stitch is a beautiful yarn shop located in Edwards, Colorado.  An absolute full and lovely selection of yarn with two of the sweetest owners you'd ever want to meet.  It had me wishing that this shop was in my neighborhood.
