Off to work and to fondle some yarn we go

Today Mary took me with her when she went to work. She and Debbi work for the same company but at different locations. Mary works over 40 miles away and she gets very tired when she is driving at 6:00 a.m. so she let me take the wheel for a bit. Here I am driving along Interstate 495. It was quite an adventure.

When we arrived at work, I found out that Mary is the person that gets all the boxes off the truck - I was tired looking at her but she told me that I was going to learn a new skill today (other than driving that is) and she showed me how to steer a pallet jack to get all the skids off the large truck. The driver was quite amazed at my strength (especially since he has never seen a Gnome before and did not know that we are magical creatures).

After all that hard work, I took a nap for the rest of the day in the back room on Mary's desk. Her boss Tamara was very nice to me and let me sleep. When we got back to the house, I learned that after supper we would be heading out to the LYS to see the owner Cyndy and look at all of the beautiful yarn and other exciting items that she has there. It was GREAT. The women there were so excited to meet me. Cyndy posed for a picture with me and then took a picture of me with the Wednesday night knitting group for her blog. We took some pictures as well and after lots of discussion and some laughs we headed for home. We will be meeting up with the knitting girls tomorrow night at the hotel lounge that they knit in. Maybe I can talk them into buying me a pint or two. We will see.

Here are the pictures from The Yarn and Fiber Company in Windham, NH.

It looks like Gnman is having a great time!!!

That is fabulous! Gnuman appears to have a genuine talent for steering the pallet jack. My absolute favorite picture is the one with the felted woodland creatures, though.

Its so much fun seeing the "boys" so close to my home! If Gnuman makes his way to me, I will take him to visit Cyndi and the Y&F gang again!
