well, we went, we ate, we saw…
and we bought yarn.
NOT a lot. Actually, we were all disappointed with the offerings (lack of yarns, lack of real wool, lack of interesting colours…)
I got some worsted in a very dark grey, I fell in love with the colour, and had an instant vision of what I’ll eventually knit.
also bought some eyelash in a sort of khaki/brownish taupish shade, it will be a swing jacket.
then, we went to Lens Mill outlet in Hawkesville, where I got some fun sock yarn, and a metre of rug canvas for needlepointing.
We ate at a great place (Crossroads) to give us shopping strength, plus it was attached to a lovely gift/quilt shop for browsing.
all in all, a lovely day off, with not too many new projects to go on with.
Oh, and my friends rescued a cat the other day, so on the way home we picked him up from the vet. poor guy is aged, was likely dumped from his home, and is in pretty rough shape. skinny skinny skinny, rough dry coat, dandruff…
but very sweet. not neutered either. (people. they make me SO angry sometimes.) He has a very aristocratic (read: prominent) nose, so his new name is Durante.
I have GREAT friends. people who don’t even think twice about taking in another stray.
