Threadbear take me away!
By last Friday Carla & I were thoroughly sick of the holidays & our families so we escaped to our favorite oasis , Threadbear.
We brought the essentials - Zingerman's & Guinness.
We bitched & moaned & laughed with Rob & Matt for half the day & went home relaxed.
Of course I bought yarn! Enough to make a lacy jacket out of Jitterbug in Copperbeach. I even crawled around on the floor at the shop until I found Rob's secret back stock stash.
The photo doesn't do the color justice, but I wasn't going to miss out on sunshine in Michigan in December.
No, that's not a scarf that's several days worth of swatching lace patterns. I started with koigu before I had the Jitterbug. I haven't hit on the one yet.
The kiddos have bestowed a rotten achy, mucusy funk on me. The one that starts by filling your ears & ends up a big cough. Hub's out of town, so I've been doing caffeine during the day & hitting the NyQuil at night - I love that stuff. I love the moment you can finally breathe & the feeling that you're sinking into your mattress as you fall asleep.
