A Spontaneous Trip
I played hooky today. Amy called me up today and said "Do you want to go to Driggs and go to the yarn shop and the bead store." I had planned to write all day and almost said no but then I thought oh why not. Driggs is on the back side of the Tetons, These are the Teton Mountains from a distance.
A closer up view.
This is my friend Amy holding this great skein of silk she bought.
We also went to a bookstore called Dark Horse Books, it was really a nice store. I really like independent book stores. I bought this book as a gift for a friend.
I fell in love with this hat. It turned out the pattern for it doesn't exist. The owner had taken a hat pattern and revamped it. So I bought the original pattern and she gave me instructions on how to alter it like she did. I thought that was really nice.
I found this yarn in the .99 bin originally 9.99 what a deal. I will use it as a gift for someone.
It was a really gorgeous day and a perfect way to take a day off. I am really glad I went.
