Kay's "Yarn Shop"

Despite the crummy wet weather today, I had a wonderful time with friends Roddie and Kay at her house in the middle of the Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge. I thought for a moment that I probably should have taken the truck, but the dingy made it just fine. Kay has a great craft room set-up over the garage with loads of room for her yarn and knitting machines. The funny thing about yarn is its ability to multiply. It kind of expands to fill every nook and cranny no matter how large the space. That's why mine is currently contained by a storage unit!




While there, Roddie and I got to take one of the knitting machines for a spin. This would be a real timesaver for those boring stretches of stockinette. Kay is able to make them knit some beautiful fair isle and lace, but I don't think I'm ready to dive into more equipment - yet.




While down there, we had lunch at the Marlin Marina. Great burgers and fantastic homemade potato chips!! It was definitely worth blowing my diet! I don't think any of us left a single crumb.
