So anyways ... once i did get out - I got socks that rock - one for me - one for a friend. Grit likes earthy colours so she got the skein on the right - I got the skein on the left.
This is 100% silk, the colour name is "Ruby" that's my mom's name and I wanted to make something lacy and pretty for her.
I stopped by Brooks Farm to get some of their Mas Acero in the heavier weight. Also picked up a cute pattern.
I had to stop by Spirit Trail... I love their colours!! I got this in lace weight... I got a pattern from Wendy Knits Japanese Garden shawl. I also picked up a few patterns for some lacy scarves and shawls. I have to do something with this accumulation of sock yarn.
I had to stop by Kiparoo Farms to get some of their Silk Road yarn. I love this stufF. They also had a really nice pattern for it, so I got that also.
I did get the funniest pattern book EVER!! Rachel Danger's Monster Knits. The cutest knitted monsters!! I had a pattern of hers from a trip to Webs.. but these monsters are the cutest!!
And to round out the weekend - I fell in the parking lot as we were leaving a restaurant. Being the amazingly graceful person I am, I didn't see the curb transition from concrete to the macadam parking lot. In my defense, the concrete sidewalk extended out into the parking lot and I couldn't see the actual step down. So here I am the second year in a row on crutches. This time however I did not break my foot, only a bad sprain. And I can still drive!!
