Green Grass and Flowers

Oak Harbor, WA on beautiful Whidbey Island, where spring has sprung. Flowers everywhere tulips, daffodils, rhododendrons, and more that I didn't get out to see who they were. Warm enuff yesterday to briefly have a/c on. Whidbey spinning do gets underway 10 and am I ever looking forward to visiting with peoples I only get to see once a year. Had supper last night with Terry from Eburg, ate at Jumbo Buffet, while I dearly love it won't go there again tonight, to tempting. Will try and find someplace with a salad bar.

Have 2 (about) 5 oz bags of BFL in shades of purple to spin, and golly gee if I should get it all done am sure there will be a vendor or 2 or 3 that would be glad to sell me something else. Am hoping I can make it into the bldg in one trip, have rolling luggage cart for wheel, can hang over the handle the lazy kate and maybe one more light bag, then purse and basket with spinning fiber, tool kit (spare belts etc.), lunch etc. on my arm.

Lots of gas stations giving 10¢ discount for debit or cash, not sure if my debit card would work but likely have cash enuff to fill up before I leave. So much selection down here that it is almost overwhelming.

Cast on socks out of the Kidazzle, oh my goodness that is nice stuff, 70% wool, 20% kid mohair, 10 % nylon, going to make exceptional socks. Using the blue - green right top of pix, next to the bright orange. Wish I knew how to add an arrow to the pix, am sure there is a way but haven't figured that out yet.

  1. Does it stripe or just mix up the blues and greens? It's almost peacock-like.
