Wool and whimsy in the frozen North.

It’s About Dang Time July 6, 2010

So, when we got married, among the very generous gifts we were given were three gift cards to REI. We kept intending to use them to buy camping supplies and then go camping (fact is we, two outdoorsy type people,  have been dating/married for six years and haven’t ONCE been camping together). Because we didn’t live near an REI, it kept getting put off and put off and put off… until today.

We FINALLY brought those gift cards to REI and spent them! We ended up getting two pairs of swimming goggles (we both enjoy diving but not so much getting chlorine in our eyes), two sets of disc golfing discs, and a sleeping bag for Cory. Funny thing is… it’s a child sized sleeping bag. But just look how perfectly it fits.

True, his feet are right down to the very bottom, but he swears it’s comfortable and that he could sleep in it, so who am I to argue?

Here are our discs.

And here is a cat.

And more yarn.

I’m so torn on this yarn. Part of me thinks it’s pretty, and part of me is going “NO NO NO it’s all wrong, you wanted dark blues and ocean colors and you got SKY colors!” So I don’t know if I should keep going and overdye, pick a new knitting pattern to use with it, or just spin something else. Opinions?

Oh, and for what it’s worth, we are now planning a camping trip.
