Because souvenir yarn is the best yarn. I had trouble finding Indiana-based wool (I’m sure it’s out there, but we only went to one yarn store: the very nice and well stocked Yarns Unlimited), so I went with something pretty: malabrigo sock in rayon vert (854). It’s making me think shawl thoughts.
Also: huge brunch with friends and adorable new baby + 5-hour drive home + laundry + cat maintenance + extreme tiredness = don’t attempt to finish turning the heel, fool.
(gentleman’s plain winter socks from the toe-up in Crown Mountain Farms sock hop, color: I’m Free. Now on hold, awaiting a new heel.)
A weekend with friends, though = best way to celebrate ever. (There was bubbly. And so. much. food. Can I just say: who knew Bloomington would have some of the tastiest Pad Thai around?)
