So how did I spend my time in the Texas Hill Country during Ike?
I had all the time in the world to knit, but I didn't really feel like it. I completed only 17 rows of stockinette stitch on my tee. We bought three movies to watch on DVD, but didn't even open the packages. Our thoughts were elsewhere, so mostly we sat outside and enjoyed our surroundings. The hummingbirds entertained us at the feeders and we listened to reports of the storm on the radio. In the evenings we cooked out on the grill and roasted marshmallows for dessert.
One day we drove into Fredericksburg and while there, I stopped by Stonehill Spinning.
As the sign says, they cater to Rug Hookin', Knittin' and Spinnin'.
The inside of the store is just as charming as the front porch, though I didn't take any pictures to show you.
I browsed for a time, waiting for something to call my name. Right away I knew I wanted to buy one of their aprons. And of course, there was yarn purchased as well. I couldn't decide on anything for me so I had John pick two colors of El Coyote Ranch yarn.
It's a blend of natural colored Rambouillet sheep and Angora goat with a bit of Llama added to the light gray.
He has requested that I cook up a hat for him with this yarn.
