Unwinding with Ravelry
A door prize ticket was offered in return for food pantry donations, and I actually won a pair of books! I met some local and semi-local knitters, saw some beautiful projects, and had a chance to chat with Mary-Heather (the weather, for I am lame) and Casey (iPhones and software). The staff at Unwind were very welcoming and good-humored and remarkably chill about the half-chaotic crush of people.
I went in to the store pre-allowing myself to buy yarn for a pair of socks and a Tempting sweater, and left with two skeins of KPPM and seven of Tahki Torino. I started the Tempting this morning and am about 4 inches into the body. It would be nice to finish it in time to take to Hawaii next weekend (!), but I know it's probably a stretch.
