So, I spent the last few days in Austin, Texas, visiting some knitter friends of mine (and making a couple of new ones, too).
There were delicious cupcakes:
Fabulous sandwiches (as seen on Food Networks “The Great Food Truck Race”):
(I’m still totally drooling over the sandwich I had: Black Forest Ham, Colby Jack, and a spicy ranch dressing all piled together in a hot, pressed sandwich.)
There was knitted wall art (my friend Sarah’s Fiona All Grown Up (rav link):
And walls of yarn:
There was also a TOTAL FAIL on the yarn diet, but check it:
CASCADE 220 SUPERWASH SPORT. In my hands and my stash. I may have run around the store squeeing when I found it. I also snagged some Jaggerspun Zephyr.
Hill Country Weavers is dangerous.
While I was there, I was busy working away on my Loop Entrelac tank, that is until I ran out of yarn. So I started on my Leyburn socks, and I managed to finish one, even amazing myself by remembering how to do a tubular sewn bind-off and executing this for the first time ever while on a plane.
And just in case you were curious, cats are apparently not immune to the powers of yarn fumes, either.
That was my Labor Day weekend. What did you get up to?
