Also, we went to Philly this weekend, which was a blast. I saw the Italian Market there, which is AMAZING and, of course, went to a LYS, (loop, and quite nice). Next trip we're going to see the Mutter. I SWEAR.
We walked past the Philadelphia Magic Garden, which I definitely have to actually go into next time. It was rather mindbogglingly awesome.

I am not sure what I think of this colorway. No, that's not true. I think it is U-G-L-Y. It ain't got no alibi. It's ugly. I believe I see an overdye in its future.
And I find the pattern, for the record, hecking boring. Although it will make a really beautiful finished object. After I dye the heck out of it.
Also, I got this enormous knee-length hooded sweater coat from a thriftstore last year. It's made from bulky yarn, mohair, cashmere, angora and awesome, and I discovered it is hand made. So I am tearing it apart. It is also filthy. So after I wash the yarn, this too will go straight into the dye bath. And then I shall make something awesome.
That is all for now.
MWAH! (Happy Valentine's Day. Now go tell some yarn how much you love it.)
