On the road again...
The front room of the office area is filled with little cubicles stuffed with different yarns dyed up in all their colorways. They also had a lovely display rack with hanks of Mountain Goat showing off all their different colors. I've never really paid much attention to the Mountain Goat, but seeing it displayed like that, shimmering in the sun, it was breathtaking. I snagged a couple skeins for the sock book, including a skein of Bearfoot in their Marigold colorway, which is a fabulous orange. I just can't stay away from that orange!
A couple of days before we left, I tripped in the bank parking lot and fell. As in, full-on, sprawling, shoulder-hitting-the-ground type falling. As in, people driving by rushing over to make sure I'm still alive falling. I was fine (other than the huge bruise on my pride), but I did end up skinning my knee and it has been bugging the heck out of me for the past few days. It's the kind of surface abrasion that burns and weeps pus - it's such a tiny little thing but it's driving me nuts. I can't bend my knee, I can't stand to have anything come close to touching it...I stupidly put a sport bandaid on it the first night without putting any ointment on it and ended up almost dying when I pulled the stuck-on pad off the next night. Okay, TMI, I'm sure, but I wanted to mention that my miracle cure has been lanolin. I still have a few tubes left over from my baby-nursing days and I decided to try it out on the knee. Overnight it made my scrape feel so much better, I can almost walk without limping! Yay me!
The troops are getting restless, so it's time to hit the road again. Wyoming, here we come! Or maybe Billings - we'll see where we end up!
