Pennsylvania

I've been a busy girl. Thursday I spent the day in Philadelphia, which resulted in a trip to Loop . I didn't buy anything but I made the Boyfriend feel the difference between linen and silk, you know, because he's starting to knit as of late.

Friday I spent home, being sick. Well, I actually spent it at Boyfriend's house and he took care of me. We (finally) watched You Me and Dupree which was okay, and we played assorted video games. Friday my dad who usually resides in Florida was flying to a small town in the southern part of the Poconos, Jim Thorpe, to help my aunt out. I took this as an awesome opportunity to visit an old vacationing spot, and see my dad.

Jim Thorpe is a beautiful town, and I've walked up and down the streets of downtown, and I have never found this shop before:

From Broadway, I looked up into the hill and saw what I thought was a yarn shop. The Boyfriend said I must be wrong, no way, blahblahblah.

As I got closer, I realized I was right!!!!!

Boyfriend had to sit in a nicely padded chair while the yarn owner and I spoke, and she told me that, instead of getting high on glue, she gets high on sheep, and proceeds to sniff a skein from Green Mountain Spinnery. Upon close inspection, it does smell like a sheep, and better yet, it still has vegetable matter within the skein. I personally don't mind, and enjoy some vegetable matter among my yarn. I'm not sure why, except that it makes me feel close to the sheep.

I don't know if you can see the vegetable matter, but as far as my computer and camera go, the pictures are very color accurate, which makes me happy because it is beautiful yarn.

This a picture of a very large piece of coal? It is 99% carbon. It's one of the random pictures I took that doesn't have the Boyfriend in it.

On the needles, I've got a baby blanket that I don't have pictures of yet. Hopefully I'll have it done soon. That's about it.

God Bless America and have a safe and happy Fourth of July!
