Full and Busy Saturday!

LOL. My toes got a lot of attention in yesterday's post! I wore sandals today, so you know I had to have that pedicure!
My day started with sewing, then mailing packages and making deliveries, and finally arriving in nearby Blacksburg to meet my gentleman friend. I got there a little early. I've never been to Mosaic, the yarn shop near the campus of Virginia Tech, but I have dearly wanted to go. I thought I'd get there a little early for my lunch date, and browse.

So I did. But only with a few minutes to spare, so I discovered they were open till 6p.m. and promised to return. And oh my. Just LOOK what I found?

That's Fleece Artist Sea Wool. The colorway is missing on the tag, but is a lovely vibrant rose/yellow-gold/blue/green and I bought 2 skeins (700 yards!). And what do you think I'm going to do with this? Well, Sandra, who works at Mosaic said it was perfect for Clapotis! Well...that's all it took, you know! :)

So I know you're dying to know how lunch went? I think we both had a lovely time...So we'll see...

The Meezer's not speaking to me. You were gone a long time, today, Mommie.

Well, I'm jealous! I haven't been to Mosaic yet. A Clapotis would be just right for that yarn and a perfect look for you! Glad your date went well too. Sounds intriguing!

How funny... I bought yarn to make a Clapotis on Saturday too! But I was off in Bedford at Yarn Theory! (however, sadly, I did not have fresh manicured toes OR a lunch date :( )

Yyayayaya on the nice lunch date! I'm so glad it went well ... nice guy?
Beautiful yarn! It will make a lovely Clapotis.
No, I still haven't updated my blog but working on Ravelry and re-inspired me to knit again. Friday there should be a big update with news and such.

Oooh! Clapotis! I see you've found the perfect yarn for it. I'm still searching for my perfect yarn for that project.

I'm so happy that your lunch date went well and I'm sure that the Meezer will get over her miff in no time.

Clapotis is a fantastic and fun pattern! Have fun knitting it up! I am dying to get my hands on some sea wool. *sigh* Some day...

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
