This is really stupid but I didn't even think to check to weather in Seattle before leaving Atlanta - it's August so I packed shorts. The first thing I had to do this morning was buy a sweatshirt. I'd worn jeans on the plane but didn't think to pack a jacket or sweatshirt - did I mention it's AUGUST?! This probably indicates how unprepared I am to live in Minneapolis!!
I've had a wonderful day - walking all over downtown Seattle, taking a ferry to Bainbridge Island and walking around there, and visiting Churchmouse Yarns & Teas.
I'd visited Seattle last summer for the first time and found this yarn shop - they were SO helpful and encouraging that I decided I could teach myself to knit. I bought a great book and some yarn and have been knitting (very simple things that don't have to fit) ever since. I wanted to visit them again this year and get yarn for a hat and scarf. They spent time helping me find simple patterns and yarn. I love this place!
