Ian and I went shopping for a floor lamp to light up the living room corner. We found very few floor lamps in consignment stores but what we did see amused us and also sent us to a retailer. We ultimately ordered one through a local lighting store and it's coming on the slow boat from China.
Saturday was my spinning guild meeting in Redmond, a half-hour from here. I was invited to breakfast before the meeting and appreciated the opportunity to spend time with and get to know some of the other ladies. They have welcomed me into the spinning community in spades. After the meeting I followed Cindy Wasner back to her house and bought more yarn. The drive home was messy and it seemed like the frosting on the cake was getting caught by the train. I can hear them from our house but this is the first one I've seen.
Cindy pointed out that the Jamison Shetland yarn I was using for this hat wasn't as sturdy as the Finullgarn she orders from Norway. I finished this hat and saw that she was right. It's thinner and smaller than the first one. However Ian was delighted with it as he has a small head and the lining band of Alpaca kept his years warm on his walk this morning. I've started another hat for son Matt.
