And Then There Is More...


My parents are visiting from Taiwan so I didn't get to go to Maryland Wool and Sheep Festival, where many of my fellow SnB friends are at. But the good thing is, I get to see my parents.

My mom had recently pick up knitting, so needless to say, many hours had been spent talking about yarn and knitting and patterns. Then my parents asked: Is there a place that sells yarn around here? Of course, after that question, I had to take them to WEBS! I mean, you CAN NOT compare to WEBS and I think my parents would agree that there is no other place to buy yarn but WEBS. Lets review our newly added stash:

Top: Dolly maxi by Laines Du Nord in Pink(10 Balls), Odyssey by Reynolds in Purple (15 Balls) and Black (20 Balls)
Bottom: alpaca silk dk by Debbie Bliss in Light Green (20 Balls) , Baby Merino by Jaeger in Red (8 Balls) and Baby Alpaca Brush by Plymouth Yarn in Magenta (10 Balls)

Regia Color, Regia Stretch Color, Interweave Knits Spring 2005 issue, Louisa Harding Winters Muse Classics Pattern Book and Knit Klips

So did you notice how many balls of yarn we bought? YEAH... A LOT! The top pictures are for my parents and grandma, and the bottom pictures are for me. I thought I did well myself. Not too much yarn but some new patterns to use up my yarn :) Well, now I have a lot of projects in my plate - 3 vests for my dad, a shirt for my mom. Notice the Regia I bought? I joined the Summer of Socks 2007 by Zarzuela! So that means I actually have to knit socks this summer since I wanted to compete for the traveling socks contest :) Now the question is, do the socks have to be completed when they travel or they can be WIP??? Hmmm... Zarzuela!?!?

After spending 3 and half hours at WEBS, it was well passed our lunch time, so we ask my GPS for a little help and it led us to Sylveste's Restaurant - It serves breakfast and lunch. We were super hungry and checked out the menu real quick and went in and sat down. I ordered a Hot Chocolate named Candy Cane and Chowder and Salad, mom had Corned Beef Hash with Sunny Side Up and Dad had
Huevos Rancheros, which is "Two eggs served atop black beans with melted cheddar along with grilled homemade corn bread, our homemade salsa and sour cream". They were mmm mmm good!

Did I tell you how inexpensive this place is? With all that food, it was less than 30 dollars!!! We went away full and happy, and with a small doggy bag.

Although I didn't get to go to Maryland this year, I am still having a good time and certainly added more yarn to my yarn wall. All I can say is, I can't wait for the WEBS tent sale in two weeks!
