Saturday started out like this. Nasty wind and wet flurries galore. Fortunately the weather was eclipsed by my destinations!
Julie and I did sort out the small changes that I will be making when I knit the Naturally Easy Raglan again - this time out of Naturally's new cashmere blend. It hasn't arrived yet; I'll probably pick it up at the Frolic. I brought home a skein of Prism Wild Stuff - I am saving the knitting of it as a reward for knitting the swatches for my Frolic classes.

She and Ada bought some sock yarn. Then we stopped by Knit Cafe where Ada bought some stunningly bright orange Koigu. Again, me resisting.

A very interesting concept - though I tend to be a book reader/keeper rather than a book releaser. Not in the picture is a perfectly scented vanilla candle and a package of coffee. mmmmmm ... coffee.
Now, I need to get this off of my chest. I'm sure that none of my thoughtful readers need this information, but perhaps the

Oh yeah, that's better! My next blog should be much more upbeat and demonstrate knitterly progress.
