In the neighborhood

Last Sunday morning, Brad and I had breakfast at one of our favorite neighborhood hangouts, Di Prima Dolci Italian Bakery. What a treat! We sat outside in the garden, and it was just so beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed delicious coffee, and we shared the Frittata with rosemary ham. Oh so nummy!

They are open late for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights. We've been several times, and it is a real treat!

Pat, the owner, is such a sweetie! Always so cheerful and hospitable. We are lucky to have her in the neighborhood!

If you haven't been to Di Prima before, you've got to try it! Don't have anyone to go with? Ask me!

The Friday morning knitting group from The Naked Sheep Knit Shop meets at Di Prima the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month from 9-11am. Join us sometime for a morning of knitting, sipping delicious beverages and enjoying the company of some lovely knitters and crocheters!!!

Classes at The Sheep

What a fun group of ladies! This is Carolyn's Thursday afternoon Pick a Project class. Some of these ladies have been taking this class from her for the over 2 years! Don't they look like they're having a great time?!

I'll be taking over this group of lovely ladies this fall when Carolyn leaves us for Jacksonhole, Wyoming. I'm looking forward to spending time with them each week. The laughter and funny stories that come out of the classroom on Thursday afternoons is inviting.

Join us for this, or many other wonderful classes at The Naked Sheep Knit Shop!

Bridge Pedal 2008

Here are some photos from this year's Bridge Pedal.

The Naked Sheep Cycle Team had a fun...

and groovy time!

They chose the 8 bridge ride, which was about 24 miles! What a great view off the Fremont Bridge! (The guy in the green shirt isn't so bad, either!)

Check out the awesome t-shirts that Brad designed for the cycle team! You can buy one at The Naked Sheep Knit Shop!

I joined them at the base of the St Johns bridge, and escorted them back to the shop. Then we continued on to a celebatory breakfast at Gravy on North Mississippi. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, their bisquits and gravy rock!

Knit Naked and Ride Hard!
