“Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.” – Langston Hughes

For earth day I actually had to drive to a conference and back – seven hours in the car in one day. For my treat on the way home, I stopped at Green Valley Weavers and Knitters in Colorado Springs, http://greenvalleyweavers.com/

There was a torrential rainstorm going on and I’d just missed the hailstorm that blew through town. A yarn shop was even more of a refuge than usual. Green Valley? Beautiful/shiny/soft/alluring selection, helpful staff, and overall just a great yarn shop. Clearly, I was in a stash building mood.

Bamboo, alpaca, and hemp - oh my!

I was also distracted by some weaving yarn called “Slinky.” Honestly, that is the name. I’m going to have to weave this up with some shiny black and see what happens.
