Field Trip! - Medina, March 2014

That's right. We are not too old for field trips in my knitting group! The CKW gals met up in Lorain County, 

and we hit the road last Saturday. We didn't go far, spending the better part of the day in Medina! We started out at Studio Knit (where I cannot believe that I did not snap a single photo...too busy buying yarn, I guess), then stopped into the Potomac Bead Company (again, no photos...just the beads I! After that, it was on to the Olive Tap.

That photo shows a giant keg of Fig Balsamic Vinegar...super yummy! I've never been to a place where you can taste the vinegar and oil before you buy it. At first it was weird to sip condiments from communion cups, but after a short time, I really got into it! I came home with oil, vinegar and artisan bread from this wonderful shop! I didn't sip so much that I forgot about lunch, however! Neither did the girls, so we set off in search of yummy-ness...

GPS on your phone is great, if your phone knows where you are! 

We thought about stopping off for tattoos, too...but our tummies told us NO!

So we headed on to lunch at Thyme, a lovely restaurant that was just a little farther away than we thought, but not too far! Some of us had our knitting, and with fingers flying...

we ordered and waited for our yummy lunch!

After lunch, we hoofed it back to the cars, and headed to Hobby Lobby, where we shopped 'til we dropped! So much goodness at Hobby was actually the inspiration for the trip! If you have one close-by, count your lucky stars! This one is not too-too far for a field trip for me, but it's a bit out of the way to be a destination in and of itself on any kind of regular basis, so I was super glad to go! By the way, no pictures in the store again...but plenty of purchases! See?

It was a super-fun day, and then we put in a Knit Picks order for yarn on Monday, because that's how we roll. How was your weekend? Did'ja do anything super fun? 

Knit in Good Health!


  1. Looks like fun! Sorry I couldn't go!

  2. Awww, I was hoping to see yarn tattoos! Sounds like a fabulous day.

  3. Looks like great fun! Wish I could somehow have joined you!

    And the brick house so takes me back--we don't have them here. Bricks crumble in quakes. Very rarely you'll see a house with a brick facade but usually they're very old ones, like, pre-1906 San Francisco quake-old.
