My local yarn shop had a sale this weekend and I took advantage of the nice weather to walk down to Georgetown.
I came away with some lovely things:
- Mission Falls Superwash Wool in a lovely teal to make the Big Bad Baby Blanket from Stitch and Bitch and one skein in purple for some charity knitting squares;
- Karabella Marble (an alpaca-merino blend) — two skeins in blues and greys for a hat or something else for Rudi and two in teals for a hat for me; and
- those fancy safety-pin style stitch markers, which already came in handy tonight when Rudi broke his handknit socks. (Btw, if anyone has any suggestions for fixing the top of a top-down sock, we’d be grateful for the tips.)
My walk along the Georgetown canal was nice. Except it made me terribly hungry, so I stopped by Snap for a chocolate chip crepe and a rose-flavored lassi. The lassi was a little weird, but Snap is more known for its bubble tea than its lassis. And while I can justify $4 for a lassi, I refuse to pay $4 for a cup of hot tea. It’s tea, people! I know how much a bag of tea sells for! But the crepe was excellent, so I would definitely go back, but just to eat.
The rest of the evening was spent cleaning and watching Witness for the Prosecution, WETA‘s classic movie of the week. I really enjoy seeing classic movies, and WETA makes it remarkably easy to catch up on those I haven’t seen as well as favorites.
Tomorrow, I’m having a couple of friends over for lunch. Rudi’s clearing out and we girls are just going to hang out for the afternoon. Should be great!
