Nothing too exciting has been going on around here, it’s pretty much just been status quo.
I went to my local farmer’s market yesterday, and was pleasantly surprised. I hadn’t been there on a Saturday for a couple of years, because it was just too crowded, and too hard to park. Instead, I had been stopping by for their smaller market on Tuesday nights, when all they have is produce.
The parking was still terrible, and it was still really crowded, but I was very pleased to see that there were nearly double the number of produce booths, a larger variety of foods, and a paved sidewalk in front of the booths all the way around the park. Overall, it was a much nicer experience, and I wished I could have stayed longer. I’d like to go back again when it’s closer to lunchtime, but I know the parking will be even worse. It’s not that I mind walking several blocks, but it’s difficult when you’re carrying a lot of produce – and you’re lucky to get a spot that’s even within a few blocks sometimes. We were there early enough to grab a space in the “Sgt. Pepper” parking lot, but by the time we left, nobody was getting that lucky.
On a knitting-related note, I went to Costco this morning and this sign for “crochet” sweaters caught my eye:
Of course, I had to take a look. After all, crochet has to be done by hand, right? Not by machine, like knitting?
The photo is really blurry, but hopefully you can make out that it is actually knit, but made to look like crochet stitches:
Boo to DKNY for false advertising.
