We left the house soon after I got up this morning and didn't get home until around 3:00 pm.
The Captain wanted to come here to get a certain type of metal detector they had.
I spied this cake shop across the way and badly wanted to go in and buy a cake or two to have with Three O'Clock Coffee for the next few days. But I refrained. Still on the low-carb "diet" and bouncing back and forth between losing and gaining 2 lbs. It's maddening, I tell you!
Inside the Hobby shop...a giant Leggo-type ferris wheel. It was going round and round and had pretty lights on it. This pictures doesn't do it justice.
And they had some really cool kites!
This one was my favorite.
Um, no thank you.
After we arrived home, I changed into my shorts and took myself outside to the porch and started crocheting this panel. This is just the first repeat.
You can get the free pattern HERE. Just like the snowflake afghan, I plan on working on this one for a long time to come just a little bit at a time. I'm using Caron One Pounders in Ocean and a size J hook. This yarn is really more of a dark teal color instead of the medium blue it looks like here.
That's it for me today. I'll have a ta-dah on a shawl I've been working on very soon!
P.S. On his first trip out metal detecting, the Captain found a bobby pin and several soda can tops. We're rich! Oh, wait. No we're not.
