3rd annual knit knight outing.

Dinner at the Bean Curd. Claire got the Hawaiian fried rice. A pineapple filled with fried rice and loads of seafood.

 

A trip to the Awesome Natural Stitches where Christina and Jack offered amazing customer service and tried some subversive marketing on us. I did not buy one skein of yarn. It helped that I snapped a few photos of my stash before I left.

 

That did not stop Ruth from buying me a present. She thinks I'd look good in red. See Lisa Simpson, you Could have Come!

I did spend a few dollars at Trader Joe's. I like their treats. There might have been some oats, granola, and honey sesame cashews purchased as well.

 

The highlight of the evening was the Giant Rubber Duck in the river. Gina would not rest until we got a good picture. I felt like we were in the Fast and the Furious dodging in and out of the city for the prize.

 

Oh, and there was some laughing. Lots of laughing.

That yarn !!! BEAUTIFUL delicious! Nice photo of the rubber duck- It is rather large! Trader Joes here is always swamped, the parking lot is crazy and dangerous. consequently, having waited for years for it to finally arrive, I can not shop there, which is actually a good thing as I have no self control.

Oooh, that yarn is yummy and will indeed be gorgeous on you. Good present!

Oh TJ! I'd have starved years ago without them. Luckily they're headquartered in CA so we have masses of them (I'm not bragging, just sighing in relief). Might I suggest you try the tamari soy seeded rice crackers? Crack is indeed an apt part of the name and not at all bad for you.
