This is the special entrance to my LYS. It is their back door. They are on the main street of our town and it is quite hard to park there, now that we have a light rail train that goes right in front of the shop. But.....The nice thing about that light rail.....in the next year I will be able to take it from my house to this store and not worry about parking again! The new station will be 1/2 mile from my house!
But I digress............................back to the sport weight yarn
It is 50/50 cotton bamboo and super nice to the touch. It has a lovely ply to it and I do believe it will show stitch patterns quite well. You can not tell in this photo, but it has a little shimmer running through it too. Being cotton and bamboo, I will, also, be able to block it when completed.
This is also the last week of school for my local Grand. She and I have been hanging out each day after school. Normally her dad picks her up since he works from home, but he is out of town this week. So I have had the joy of spending some quality time with her. Monday we hit up Baskin Robbins for a couple of dips of ice cream. It was quite yummy but made me care less about dinner that night.
Yesterday I let her choose our activity. She wanted to go to Barnes and Noble book store. So off we went. She saw a ton of books she would love to add to her library. She is keeping a list on her phone of all the books she wants to read. While she was perusing the sci/fi and fantasy books, I wandered over to the cookbook section.
Every book you see in the photo is a cookbook. I was not able to get the other 2 racks, that were behind me, in the photo. How on earth is a person supposed to find anything unless they know exactly what they want. I was looking for an instant pot cookbook. There were so many of them it was over whelming! I left without a cookbook!
After the bookstore we went to her house and watched a movie of her choosing. We watched "Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief". It was quite good. When I left, I told her to think about what she wants to do today after school. We have almost 3 hours before her mom gets home from work. I can't wait to see what she chooses today.
Thursday I do not get to hang out with the Grand. She does volunteer work at our food bank that day. Friday, we have an out of school bash at the local aquatics center for a swimming/pizza party. We will probably watch a movie after that. Being in this heat for 2 hours will tire out a body.
I need to get to the DMV and renew my drivers license. Mine expires on my birthday this year. That is only 9 days from now. I only need an eye test this time but the lines are always super long there. Maybe that will be my outing tomorrow morning. Gives me a reason to get moving in the morning.
I think that gets me caught up on the week's activities. Now I want to go and work on some crafting goodness. I think I will work on the market bag so I can get that done and off my list. The scarf will not be needed until November at the earliest and I use the market bags weekly. We try not to us any plastic or paper bags from the store anymore. Plus, we get $$ credit for taking our own bag.
Until next time.......................Happy Crafting!!!!!
