It’s not easy to get back into this blogging thing after a two week absence, I feel like I need to do a little recap over the next few days. I apologize for the photo heavy post.
First, we got married. For photos and a story, check out this link
The wedding was fabulous. I never expected it to be so much fun. After all the planning and chaos I was just hoping for no catastrophes, but I wasn’t anticipating that it would end up being a terrific party. The only thing I’d change is that I would’ve cloned myself about 8 times, so that I could have more time to spend with each guest.
We left the next day for Argentina; we flew to Buenos Aires and then directly down to Ushuaia. The sock was a little tired after 24 hours of travel, so it spent the first day of the honeymoon resting in the hotel while JF and I went on an excursion in 4 x 4s.
It was still pretty sleepy on the second day, so we let it rest while we went kayaking to the island of penguins.
It barely had the strength to peek out the window on the flight from Ushuaia to El Calafate.
It recovered a bit once we landed, bolstered by the knowledge that El Calafate is an important hub for wool traveling from the Patagonian estancias for export. See all the sheep…
There may have been a little wool shopping.
I bought four fluffy skeins of sheep-colored handspun.
This yarn is RUSTIC, it smells wooly, feels a little oily, and has little flecks of barn stuff throughout. It reminds me of an Irish fisherman’s sweater, but I’m not sure if I have enough for an adult size.
I also bought three skeins of super soft brown merino (150 grams per skein) for another undetermined project.
Total expenditure – approximately $15. Yep, $15.
There’s so much more to tell – I’ll post again tomorrow with more photos and yarns!
