Once a week I go over the mountain and down the hill into Colorado Springs to get some shopping done. It is usually a full day and I generally come home pretty exhausted. DH picks up a pizza on those days so I don’t have to mess with cooking when I get home.
I’m usually on a mission with a long list of stops to make. The highlight of my shopping trip today was the purchase of a new lense for my Canon Rebel XT. I wanted a basic 50mm fixed lense to do some general photography. Photography is one of my ‘other’ hobbies and I need to brush up on some basic skills. This lense will serve that purpose well. Of course, I brought my camera with me to try out the new lense.
At Michael’s I spotted this new cotton worsted weight yarn. Being somewhat of a yarn snob, this is usually not where I purchase my yarn. However, the salmon color caught my eye immediately and I couldn’t resist picking up a skein. This is my favorite color and I am rarely able to resist it! I can picture the SPRING FORWARD Cardigan in one of my Twists and Turns newsletter knit with this yarn. I’ll have to swatch with it and see how it goes! Have any of you used this yarn?

As I mentioned in my last post, autumn is just around the corner here in the Rockies. On my drive down this morning I saw a few aspen trees starting to turn golden. Can you believe that? This is one of my favorite times of year. The deer have eaten just about all my flowers but they are not overly fond of mums so I picked up a few for the front porch. This color goes well with my log home.
Nine stops……………….time to head home up over the mountains. See that peak in the far distance? That is where I live. One hour left to go and I will be home at last!
