It’s Been a Busy Week on the Creek

September 14, 2009

I had to go for my annual physical Tuesday morning.  While I was out, I had my teeth checked at the dentist.  Then, I got some breakfast.  Afterwards, I got a haircut.  I had about three inches cut off and it’s still long enough to put up.  September here can still have some hot days. 

Wednesday morning, I had blood drawn.  Every year, this gets harder.  I have terrible veins.  They were finally able to get blood out of my right hand.  When I had a colonoscopy, they had to put the IV in my foot.  It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was donating blood on a regular basis.  I must be getting old.

The best day was Thursday.  Leslie and Maria came over we went shopping.  They are knitters, too,  so guess where we went.   drove.  I like to drive.  First, we went to Sea Needles in Bethany Beach.  We were there for almost two hours.  I bought A size 7 circular needle, some sock yarn and Rowan magazine #46.  I don’t know why they call it a magazine.  It’s more like a book.  I wanted a 47″ or 60″ size 8 circular needle, but the longest they had in anything.  I was hoping to get one at the next stop.  Leslie bought some needles, but Maria couldn’t make up her mind about some sale yarn.  I liked both colorways so I wasn’t much help.  She didn’t buy either. 

Next, I drove up Route 1 to Rehoboth Beach.  It was raining hard and very windy by that time.  Driving along with the bay on one side and the ocean on the other was exciting.  The rain had eased off by the time we got to Rehoboth.  I forgot to bring quarters for the meter, but Leslie had plenty–probably from the slots.  That’s her other passion.  The shop is called Kitschy.  I don’t think we will be going back.  There wasn’t much variety.  I believe she only stocked what she liked.  I never did get the other needle I wanted.  I was too disappointed in this shop.
