Exciting Yarn Day

So, it was finally DK Frolic here in our city.
My friend Kathleen picked me up in the morning, and
Another friend had picked another of my friends, Sherri up, and we met at the
Japanese Cultural Center.

It was a bit cool in the morning, so cool that I gave up and wore my
knitted jacket.

Once we got in, it was walking and checking the vendors` booths and
all the good stuff they had brought in to sell.

I fell in love this yarn:

It will take some time before I figure out what to use it for.  Probably a shawl, a big one, since
there is quite a bit of yardage in each hank.  
The Yarn is Breathless Lace, from Shalimar Yarns.
75% Merino, 15% Cashmere, 10% Silk

I also bought a fabric bag that has cat designs on it, and a small cat pin for my 
key ring (it`s tiny, though, but I think it will do)

After we had walked around enough, and bought what we had seen and wanted,  we headed 
Halibut and French Fries, Cole Slaw and Tartar Sauce.  Oh, my it was yummy.
The coffee was good too, I had two refills and no extra charge.  

Well, then it was time to decide if we would go to another yarn place, this time
to see what is on sale in a yarn store not too, too far away from 
the restaurant.  Off we went to Sew and Knit Store.

I decided to get some sock yarn to make gifts, as I don`t wear hand knitted socks
too often. I do like knitting them though, and I would say that 90% of the socks
I have made, have been given as gifts.  It`s a pleasure for me.

It was a great way to spend a Saturday Morning, Noon and Afternoon  with
good friends.  
It was time to come home, time to take a nap, time to take another nap, and
organize the thoughts of what has to be done next.
