You will note that the ticker was reset again. I’m hopeless, but least I’m honest. More about that later.
We went on a little road trip this weekend to the Oregon coast with the new car and the dogs. We found a nice little resort right on the beach that was dog-friendly, and stayed for a few days. It was cool, rainy, and windy, but just a perfect get-away, and the dogs had a blast running on the beach.
Here is a travelogue, in photos.
In the car, more than ready to go:
It would have been better if we’d gotten a room with a nicer view:
All this leads to two very tired but happy dogs.
Of course there was a yarn shop in town. Isn’t there always? I bought two skeins of sock yarn, which of course I don’t need. What’s your point?
There is a skein of Jitterbug sock yarn, in the color Lapis. The other one is Noro Kureyon sock yarn, which I had no desire to buy until I actually saw it.
My second mistake was that we took our laptop along with us. We had wireless internet access, which is always dangerous when combined with a credit card and lots of free time. My logic went like this: I’ve already blown the yarn shopping fast, and have to post about it, so why not really do it up right? This makes perfect sense to all of you, right? Don’t even begin to try to convince me that you all wouldn’t do the same.
So I was browsing online and found the Three Irish Girls website. I couldn’t resist some more sock yarn. Look at their colors, and see if you don’t fall for this, too. Then I realized that I had a coupon for 10% off at Kris’s shop, Sonny and Shear. Let’s just say that I won’t need to buy sock yarn for a few more lifetimes. These haven’t arrived yet, but I’m pretty sure I’ll love all of them, too.
Last but not least, thank you all for the lovely comments on my last post! I got to wear the stole on vacation, and it provided some much-needed warmth!
