So, after I left the Rendevous, I decided on one more adventure. I was well over half way to Guthrie, and in Guthrie there is the bestest yarn store. It's probably about 60 miles from me and with gas so expensive, it's not usually an option. But hey, I was too close to miss it!
So, off I went. Katya, I forgot that the exit went off to the left! Yikes, I made it but I'm thinking that I will never forget that again. And I'm also quite thankful that my car actually stayed upright.
It's just a good thing I went to the restroom before I left the Rendevous! And all I could remember about the quilt shop you told me about was 'Stuckey exit' but after all that it's a wonder I could remember anything! Oh well, another road trip in the future!
So I get to SWAK on a mission. Remember back here I talked about sleeping through a tornado while dreaming about knitting a baby sweater??? Well, here's the sweater. And it's in this book.
Which I bought. So I can quit dreaming about it maybe. I'm not sure that I'll ever be able to knit it...it's rather complicated to my less skillful mind. Sure is cute tho!
I also got a Fibertrends pattern for ballerina slippers. Close as I'll ever get to being a dancer, for sure. I've lusted after this for a long time. And there it was! And, of course I had to get yarn to go with it. So 2 skeins of Cascade and I'm good to go!
I came back home on state highways...those blue lines on the map. Good roads and incredible scenery. I tried taking pics of the horizon but I don't know how to make my camera do those long sort of pictures. There were places where, if my eyesight had been incredible I think I could have seen all the way to Laura's at least. As far as I could see there were gorgeous blue skies and white fluffy clouds in all directions. Amazing! It really needed a 365 degree lens!
Finally those blue highways led me to a Sonic for a burger, and home for a nap. Last evening was spent with new pretties and my sock. And bedtime came just in time. And, did I dream about the baby sweater?? Nope, I dreamt about a bologna sandwich. At least the grocery is easier to get to if it becomes a persistant dream. :-)
Oh...and Happy Mothers' Day to all you mothers and daughters and sons and sisters and friends.xoxox
