Home again, home again, jiggedy jig!

Sigh, we are home. The bittersweetness of the comfortableness of home, and of leaving family and the freedom of vacation. We had an absolute blast. My eye came open again, but I still had fun, so there.

When we left CA it was hot. Here in Iowa, it is chilly. Welcome home to us!

On my vacation I got to go to my VERY FIRST REAL YARN STORE! It was lovely, heaven. I walked through all those yarns and things and was just happy. AAAAAAH. Everyone in my family could not understand my excitement, but you yarn lovers can, I just know it. I bought 3 skeins of Debbie Bliss alpaca silk, mmmmm. And I got to actually touch it before I bought it! Now I just need to find a good pattern, or, knowing me, and idea for what to make with it.
