A visit to the yarn store.....More Yarn Goodies... And Pretty Sheets of Glass....
Yesterday was a nice day for a drive so I went to Tiverton to Sakonnet Purls and met up with Kimberly. I ended up being very late getting there due to the long line at the post office. Apparently, everyone who wanted a passport was there yesterday to apply for it. I just wanted to pick up my package which was waiting for me. It was the one for the yarn de-stash purchase I did on Ravelry from MomSue84. If anyone is on Ravelry and wants a great person to shop from, this is the lady. Her choices of yarn to destash are terrific.
Anyway, I finally get to Sakonnet Purls. After a quick hello, I shopped for a bit. Actually quite a bit. Happy Feet, Schaefer Anne, Claudia, Alpaca Sox, Regia, and Malabrigio Lace were the yarns I bought along with some big buttons. I might use one as a shawl pin after I attach a clip or pin to the back of it.
After talking to Kimberly and the other ladies for a while, I headed homeward. As I approached the exit for Rehoboth, I decided to detour to the Glass Emporium glass shop. I came out of there with a few sheets of stained glass. All are mixed colors. There's a Yougaghani in a deep shade red with yellow and orange in it. Two of those found their way to the counter and into my car. I found one sheet which is predominantly green, but has many colors in it reminding me of a smudged, muted, field of flowers off in the distance. That's all I bought which is really good for me. Usually I buy a lot more at a time. There were only a couple of people in the store when I got there. The shop was closing at the time I got there, and the owner was nice enough to let me shop first.
I also managed to find a pair of pajamas I like at Catherine's. I need them for the spinning retreat on February 1.
Then I stopped for a pizza at Papa John's for supper before I went home. After eating, and sharing with the animals, I got comfortable and worked on the modified Pi Shawl for 2 hours until my husband came home from work. I didn't want to quit in the middle of a repeat, so I spent another hour knitting until my eyes were trying to close.
