In my case the need was to retreat from the labour of being me on a daily basis. When nothing is going your way, as a friend says, "Get out of Dodge for a few days." So off I flew to BC to be in the presence of someone who loves me. How remarkable and healing it is to be reminded that I don't suck.
Of course there was yarn shopping. What's a trip without a wee bit of stash enhancement? I was looking specifically for sock yarns. At the lovely Button & Needlework Boutique, I picked up a skein of Estelle Arequipa on sale (possibly my favourite words). Then I went to Beehive and there found some pretty pink ONline Supersocke which is fast becoming another pair of Broadripple.
