Tomorrow morning I’m picking up Ivy and we are heading up to Ames for the Iowa Sheep and Wool Festival. I’m trying to be more conscious about my purchases, but I’ll probably go crazy. Garden Wool & Dye Company will be there, and I’ve been debating joining her yarn CSA since it was announced. Seeing her yarn tomorrow might be enough to convince me to do it
In addition to prepping myself emotionally to spend lots of money on yarn, I’m putting my plan together for what to bring for the day. It’s going to be in the upper 90s with a heat advisory. I’m planning on bringing a big water bottle. I’m going to wear shorts and a light shirt and pack lots of sunscreen. I’ll probably wear my huge ugly sunhat too. I hope the market is air-conditioned, because it would be hard to check out the yarn when I am sweating profusely.
I can’t believe how hot it will be tomorrow. I’m sure it will be fun, but it would have been even more fun if it was cool enough to wear pants.
