The Sweeties are officially out of school for the summer, and we spent the weekend at Santa Monica at a beach soccer tournament for Sweetie Boy. They had a great first day, and Sweetie Boy even scored a 10 year old boy’s dream goal… a header goal. However, today… not so good. I tried to take pictures, but just got a lot of feet in the sand.
After yesterday’s games, we went in search of lunch on the way home. When I flipped a u-turn to get to the restaurant, I saw a yarn store out of the corner of my eye. It was Yarns Unlimited! I had never been to it before, knew it was in Santa Monica somewhere but didn’t make plans to go because we were in soccer mode. After lunching, Sweetie Boy was in such a good mood that he agreed to half an hour for me at the LYS. That’s why I call him Sweetie Boy. He perused the yarns with me, because he said he wanted to learn how to knit. He’s planning to make Sweetie Girl a cap in her favorite color, purple. Ahhh, what a sweetie. We didn’t get him any yarn because I had some great chunky lavender alpaca at home for him to learn on. Of course, in the name of supporting LYSs and souvenir yarn, this is what came home with me. They were having a sale of 10% after all.
Misti Alpaca lace weight in springy green, pink and lavender, and eggplant. Because you all know that I’m *such* a lace expert, right? 😉 Oh, BTW I also received my Jaggerspun Zephyr in vanilla for the Mystery Stole 3. Gotta start swatching soon.
Happy Father’s Day to you and your loved ones. Have a great rest of the weekend!
