A very good day

We are enjoying our rest day here in Navasota and I knew just exactly how to spend it.  Dolly and I walked downtown to W.C. Mercantile, a yarn and fiber shop.  Stephanie is the owner and was as nice as could be.  She let me browse to my heart's content and paw all the lovely yarn and fiber.  I bought some yarn to make a Fair Isle hat (or two) and a needle so I can get started while I have Moira to teach me the new technique.

And if having a wonderful shop and being helpful wasn't enough, Stephanie noticed that it was about to rain, closed her shop and drove us back to our hotel.  I cast on for the first hat while I waited for the dryer to finish drying my clothes.  Supper at a steak house topped off the day - the margarita was the final touch.

The day started out cloudy and cool, but the temperature dropped about 20 degrees when the rain started and it has remained cold the rest of the day.  Not sure yet what that will mean for tomorrow, but I have the warmer layers set out just in case.

I'm enjoying your blog. I enjoy cycling and knitting and am training for the WTour around Lake Ontario in August. Enjoy these last few weeks of your tour!
