October 3rd Headed for San Francisco

Dolores and I got in the car and headed out at 8am friday October 3rd.Dolores drove and we used my GPS system Magellan which she named magella since it had a women's voice:)I knit on Graces scarf so I wouldn't be a total back seat
We were in awe when we went threw the toll to head over the San Francisco -Oakland
Bay Bridge.It took us 7.5 hours to get to Santa Rosa and our hotel.We put our stuff away and headed for the mall 4 blocks away for some panda express:)Then we went back to our room and finished knitting our cupcake dishcloths before going to sleep.The hotel I booked our room at was 5 minutes from Copperfield's Bookstore.We got up ate our continental breakfast and got ready for the book signing.Dolores and I arrived at the bookstore at 11am since the book signing wasn't till 3pm I collected the 2 books I had prepaid for and the tickets for The Yarn Harlot book signing then we just browsed.I ran into some other early comers who invited us to join them for lunch Alison,no-blog-Rachel, and the Knitmore Girls Jasmin and mom Gigi.I will post some more of the story tomorrow.
