My daughter took her friend and myself up on the mountain to Galax, Virginia yesterday to a favorite yarn shop there called deBeez House of Yarn. I have been on "no-buy" for about two years now for both yarn and quilting fabric, so it is unusual for me to actually buy something! But I do hate to go to a small store owned by a friend, and not buy something. So I bought the above (minus the pottery of course!) and enjoyed talking to Deb again. I plan to use the green/gold for a Round Ripple afghan, putting some pale gold and some dark green with it. I'm not at all sure what I will use the purple camo yarn for. It just "called to me". I love purple! The two Paton's books have top down sweaters. My favorite kind. I enjoyed getting to go up on the mountain and seeing the Fall foliage this year. We'd had a drought all summer, but the colors were really nice. Oh, and we ate at our favorite Chinese restaurant, called Peking Palace. Really good food there, and supposedly no MSG!
