A Grand Day Out

Probably the toughest thing about not having a car is how much it's limited how often I see my parents. They live half an hour away, and there are no bus routes there.

I'm trying not to be too much of an imposition, but I really wanted to dye some yarn - and the studio is at their place. So yesterday morning, Dad picked me up bright and early and we spent a little Daddy/Daughter time at Princess Auto. Then we headed back home where I dyed yarn, and chatted with Mom while she tackled some sewing.

As a result, there's a new batch of Twinkle Cat ready for the shop.
 As well as three skeins (Alley, Jungle & Twinkle) for myself. 
They will be put towards the GO patterns. I also snagged three other dry skeins; one I dyed last time, one Miss Pee dyed, and one Mom had squirreled away. But, I don't have pictures of those yet. With that and what's in my stash, I should have enough for the patterns I have planned.

After full day of dyeing, we enjoyed a nice roast beef cooked by Dad. The Mom drove me home that work, where I enjoyed a nice quiet evening with the Scrufflebutt
Can't think of a better way to spend a rainy Saturday.

Mmmmmm, nice newly dyed yarn and all the possibilities!!!!
We are too far in the country to go without a car....in another week my parents go back to NY and I won't see them until August. Hard.
