Rides, miniature golf, eating, swimming-the usual amusement park fun.
Of course, before we went I tried to scout out yarn shops online and found one over an hour the opposite direction of any place we were heading-however, the telephone book at the hotel scored a hit only 5 minutes away, Swisher's Yarn Basket-nice shop, the owner was super nice and helpful. I went in looking for specific yarn, which they didn't carry, but it was a nice little shop (no website, sorry). I have her email addy though, and can order more from her at any time. I did pick up three balls of Ella Rae Amity Yarn in a pretty plum color to make Elena a shrug (or even myself). It's an acrylic/wool blend, has very nice hand and the owner had made a sweater out of it, had it on display and showed me how it didn't pill or anything.
I also picked up a couple skeins of Plymouth Galway Wool-I can't find the color online anywhere, but it's a three ply, each ply is a different color-with purple, kiwi green and hot pink for each ply. She said it felted great-so I decided a bag would be good.
I also picked up a skein on Supersocke 100 for the Ravelry sock CAL-color was City. Of course I had sock yarn, but it's always fun to try a new sock yarn and with over 400 yards on one skein and since I never tried that brand-something fun.
I did manage to start the flip flop socks and did complete two 12" squares for Blankets for the Gulf. and I promise pics tomorrow. Once is a basic granny, the other is the Butterfly Square from Heartmade Blessings (link tomorrow too). Jaye recommended it and it's a great square pattern, however it only came out 12" using an H hook (all I had, that and a D hook) and I have to add a few rows of DC edging to get it to 12" (the last row was DC around). I also ran out of the yarn color I was using while there and have to check my stash to see if I have any of the Raspberry upstairs, if not, I'll make a complimentary border in SS and then probably make another Butterfly Square in a different color also, go up a hook size and see if it comes out to 12".
