My Contest Entry

Blue Moon Coffee Cafe* is my favorite place to get a cup of joe these days. Especially since my Tuesday Night Knitting Group now meets there!

Moons and stars decorate the entire place, right down to the glow-in-the-dark stickers on the bathroom ceiling. (How many public restrooms do you actually want to turn the light out in?) It has nice baristas who are willing to add a little real cinnamon before steaming for me, comfy couches and chairs in the back, big tables with big chairs in the front, lighting that is good enough to knit by but still "coffeehouse cool," free wireless so you can follow election results from your friend's laptop computer, lots of interesting people coming and going all the time, but none so loud and irritating that you have to get away from them (except maybe our table?), and delightful bars, cookies, and other late night snacks including little bags of kiddy cereals just right for munching. What more could a Knitter ask for?

Oh yeah, the best thing about Blue Moon is that it has my knitting friends. We have SO much fun together and I SO look forward to Tuesday nights. Now...if only the election results will really turn out like I'm hoping...
*Their web site is not really started yet, but I dig their logo and thought you might too.

**The project on the needles is the second sock from my Hot Socks Swap partner La Verna, who is also participating in this swap. I tell you, whoever gets to be spoiled by La Verna in this Knitters Coffee Swap is in for a treat - she went all out! The yarn is Claudia Hand-Painted 100% merino in "Sky Blue." Love it. Love it, love it, love it!
