We did collage-making with magazines.
I hate collage-making with magazines. I always sit next to some who is finding the perfect words and images with no effort, while I spend the time piecing together something that looks more like a ransom note. This held true today, but fortunately I had RevFun sitting on the other side. reading the magazines and not making a poster at all. I felt successful by comparison.
At lunch time, we got a chance to go for a walk, so I took off to the quaint little Main Street shopping area. I called Pure Luck as I strolled, to check in on the home front, but it came as no surprise to him when I suddenly said, "WAIT! I see yarn. Gotta go."
The town's charm increased, one might even say magnified (Advent humor), when I entered, I kid you not, Heavenly Socks Yarns. I came home with a skein of the above colorway — "Pansy Patch" — of some gorgeous yarn from a Vacationland farm.
Of course, after many hours of driving, I don't have the wrists for knitting. But I do have hope that in time I will knit again.
And, yes, that's an Advent reference, too. People need to get into the mood.
