Loops on Labor Day

I had a great day today. Shelly, her daughter Amanda and I drove up to Tulsa. Shelly drove (I think she's afraid of my driving....although I am a first hand witness AND survivor of a red light infraction) and so I had LOTS of knitting time. As you can see in the picture to the left I am nearly finished with the front of the CIC Boatneck Sweater. I do have to admit that navy tweed is a sharp looking yarn. First we stopped at Chimi's on Cherry Street. I think Shelly and Amanda fell in love with the fresca salsa. Chimi's does it up right!

Next we traveled to Utica Square and went to Loops. It was Shelly and Amanda's first visit there. With Gourmet Yarn as my all time favorite yarn shop, Loops comes in at a close second. They had a 25% off sale on the project wall and this is what I left with. Three skeins of the softest Blue Sky Cotton in natural color. I swear if you didn't know it was cotton you'd think it was cashmere or alpaca. It's soooooo soft!! Speaking of alpaca, I knew Plymouth did a smaller weight alpaca than the Baby Grande and I found some. So I have three skeins of that in lime. One skein of Cotton Classic for some bright washcloths and two skeins of Claudia Handpainted sock yarn. It may become a triangle scarf or something other than socks but it sure does have a nice squishy squeeze to it!!

And when I arrived home Lexi let me know it was a nice day to sleep while the rain came down.

I CAN'T BELIEVE you *posted* about that tiny red light detail! There was really nothing to it.....there was at least 3 or 4 feet between us and the other car!!! : )

We had a great time today, too!
