Kathi Prater Taylor visit to Snohomish, March '11

I made a quick trip to Snohomish early in March, to teach a knitting class at Great Yarns in Everett, and to speak to the Snohomish Knitter's Guild (if you're a knitter in the area, look them up- it's a great group).

I didn't have much time for visiting while I was in Snohomish, but Kristy Downes Kelly did take my knitting class, along with her daughter Erica. It was great to see her!

And I had lunch with Peggy Hill Engeseth, and Kris Johnson Hansen at The Collectors' Choice Restaurant- the food was great, and I think we were the youngest people there.
