Staying with a friend overnight, we have a lovely walk around town yesterday including lunch.
Place has as many intersting restaurants as Berkeley (without the panhandlers on every corner). A stop at the major local yarn shop left me amazed. I had absolutely no clue that there were actually that many cotton, linen and glittery novelty yarns in existence. The A/C is blasting, it is freezing inside most buildings and here we have yarns that require broomsticks or larger to knit.
Not a sock yarn and almost no wool insite. Humpf!
The near-by labeled Flee Market turned out to be a European collection of market stalls under one roof featuring jewelry, clothes, tailors, shoes, Tschockes and bit of this, that and the other thing. The overflow stall from the yarn store had more novelty yarns. More importantly, there was a basket of bamboo circulars in tiny sizes for $3/each. I happily left with size US 0,1,2, &3. Doesn’t seem that anyone else wants them at all.
I have a flight this afternoon via O’Hare (lovely) to San Francisco where it is on to find the DH who hopefully will be waiting for me somewhere along the line.
