Out running errands this afternoon, I just happened to find myself in a Frip-Prix thrift store (that name makes sense in French), where I found two excellent things:
1. Several nice plates -- that vitrified hotelware I'd mentioned recently; two dinner plates at 99 cents each, and three side plates for 49 cents each.
2. Three and a half balls of Pingouin Typhon, a chunky wool-mohair-acrylic blend, for 99 cents total. It's about 175 yards, and I'm thinking mittens.
(Our back porch is being resurfaced, and the concrete looks cool right now.)
I'm off to Toronto in the morning, where I'll be spending the rest of the week in the archives. Then on Sunday Bill and I are going to Hamilton for a few days. I'm not taking my laptop. I may or may not blog while I'm away, so don't be concerned if I don't. I've packed a ball of alpaca laceweight and a shawl pattern, so we'll see whether I get to that. Have a great week, and I'll be back soon.
