Spring break is finally here, so i decided to spend my day hunting for props and shopping for yarn with Rachel. We, of course, did this in true Ann Arbor fashion. I checked the Salvation Army, the Re-cycle Center, and the Treasure Mart for props. We had a lot of fun at Treasure Mart and took lots of pictures. When we have an apartment, we’re buying all our dishes from there. It will be amazing (when the apartment thing happens is unknown. but it will be cool when it does happen). We both bought some lovely things from Treasure mart, all of which were 50 cents. We have small matching glasses:
I also bought two glasses for Keith (a friend, and who’s show I am finding props for):
He likes ancient Greek theatre, so I thought these would be appropriate. Trust me, if you’ve ever been to Treasure Mart, you would understand why they were too perfect to pass up.
After Treasure mart we had an amazing lunch at Kosmo’s, where we used to go during high school. We reminisced about how great high school was and how it’s strange that we liked high school better than college, but that’s what happens when you go to an amazing high school. We also met the most adorable child ever.
He was our buddy, and he and his baby-sitter ate lunch with us. It was a lot of fun.
I went to Busy Hands and Flying Sheep in search of yarn for Clessidra. They are so beautiful, I just have to make them. It took forever to find the right yarn, but I did find this at Busy Hands:
Malabrigo lace weight in Pearl. 470 yards of beautiful merino wool. I don’t know what I’m going to use this for, but it was too perfect to pass up. I just could not leave without it.
I finally found yarn for the socks at Flying Sheep
Dalegarn Baby Ull in navy blue. Cheaper than sock yarn, and with enough in stock to buy 4 skeins. Who would have thought that I could make knee high socks under $30.
Today was wonderful. And now it’s time to knit and read some more plays.
Oh yeah, I finished another pair of socks
Urban Gypz sock yarn in Autumn Study (i think) that I bought in Asheville over the summer. I love them.
