Back From Argentina!

We flew back from Buenos Aires last night, and landed this morning – the honeymoon was fantastic. No opportunities for blogging, and not too many for knitting, but we enjoyed plenty of hiking and feasting on meats and empanadas.

I did find a little time for shopping. In fact, I bought a new duffel bag.



Here's why…



Argentina is the world’s largest wool exporter. The entire Patagonia is full of sheep. We drove for six hours - much of the time there were sheep grazing as far as we could see.

The wool was amazing - beautiful, soft, and 1/4 the price. I promise I'll provide a better update tomorrow, after a little sleep and a lot of unpacking.

In the meantime, here's a photo of my sock in progress enjoying the shady and beautiful Plaza San Martin in the middle of Buenos Aires.
