Love Your Junk...

Yarn, that is.

I hope you all had a fun weekend. We had a busy one -- that we managed to cram into one Saturday morning. First we headed up the highway to a giant yard sale where we scored big on clothes and supplies for Pasha. Then we came back down to our end of the world to see Junkyarn at the Sola Pop-up Market.

If you are not familiar with Junkyarn, all of her colorways are inspired by badass ladies. I was lucky enough to score some in a few of her early updates. I have a skein of Rey and one of Leia, but when she announced the pop-up I was still hoarding them. So when we decided to check it out I just had to cast on, and oh am I glad I did. I love this yarn. Which is awesome because I have access but less awesome because I need more, More, MOAR!

The pop-up itself was a lot of fun. Kemper did a wonderful job with her booth and everyone was really nice despite how unbelievably hot it was. I spent a long time deliberating on what to get before settling on a skein of Molly (as in Molly Weasley) to make matching mom and baby socks for Pasha and me. Luckily I was also shopping for other friends, which gave me all the joy of buying more yarn without breaking the bank.

And of course, I could not contain my excitement. As soon as we got home I wound up my skein and cast on Pasha's first sock. Procrastiknitting at its finest.

Don't tell Chris, but I'm already making plans to go to the next pop-up sometime in October. Do you need me to shop for you?
