We are back from our trip to Bodega Bay. It was fun. Did I go to a yarn shop you ask? Of couse I did. We went to the Black Mountain Artisans in Point Reyes and I bought some handspun angora and some handspun cocker spaniel (YES, cocker spaniel. I couldn't help myself. You know I like different).
I am not so boring that I have no other interest other than yarn, so Mr Yarn surprised me and took me on a little adventure (he is the best). He took me to one of my favorite places. I have never told you this, but I have a fascination with carnivorous plants. Mr. Yarn took me to California Carnivores. I bought some plants and I swear I won't kill them this time.
We also went to a honey shop. It sold bee keeping stuff and all the honey products you can ever ask for. I wanted hives but Mr. Yarn is really allergic to bee stings. I didn't think it would be too good of an idea although he assured me that I could do it if I wanted. I don't think so. I did buy a shirt that I think is really cool (show you tomorrow).
Last but not least we went to the co-op that I love in Bodega. I bought this handdyed shawl. I loved it and I don't think I have ever bought a handmade textile.
So the trip was great and I got my fill of incredible oysters and lots of crab. Now it it time to go back to work. I did almost finish the sweater that I took on the road trip. I will show you when it is done.
