One day trips to anchortown are not my favorite thing to do – up and back in the same day – 300+ miles, 3+ hours each way, road construction, road whales (rvs) and idiot drivers (anyone but me – hahaha) add up to a not so fun trip.
Add to that the stress of having to take hubby to the eye doc for an evaluation for an upcoming cataract surgery . . . well, just a wee bit difficult.
But, we made it through in one piece – even found a local yarn shop I have been trying to find the last several trips up – and got the Girl her (13th!!) birthday gift. So, it turned out okay.
You can read more about the local yarn shop over at knittingpassion. I’ve placed links to Zaynab’s shop (Knitting Grounds) and her blog (knits from grounds) there also.
Bought a skein of TOFUtsies sock yard – did you know it is made (well 2.5% of it) from shrimp and crab shells? That’s just pretty cool. She had a sample sock made of the yarn and it feels so soft! That may be my next project – I have so many different things on needles at the moment, but I am looking forward to seeing how the yarn knits up.
Hubby moose will have the cataract surgery on his right eye in mid-August. They will wait to do the left eye until after the first surgery is completely healed and he is ready. That will either be the end of August or sometime in September or October. It actually depends on hubby and the doc – they just need to give me enough warning so I can arrange to take time off work.
Have a great Wednesday, everyone!
