... to counteract all the unpleasant ones.  I got out of work early today and got to go to Strands and Stitches in Laguna Beach for a "yarn tasting."  It was quite fun!

They had some food, cookies and lots of people to talk to.  It was an event to show off the Louet Wet-Spun Linen.  So I oggled it for a long while wishing I had the extra cash to buy some and hung out with knitting buddy P.J.  At least I was able to help her pick out some good colors for a design she's working on.  They had a drawing for a hank of the linen and a pattern, I think they gave away five of them but my name was never called. =(  Oh well.

I didn't find out until near the end of the event that the lady who came to bring all the extra show-off pieces and yarn is actually the lady who OWNS Louet North America!  So that ended up being a nifty surprise!  We chatted about my Louet spinning wheel and how I needed a new flyer for a while.  She's actually very nice and fun to talk to.

All in all, the evening went well and was enjoyable.  I got to see pretty yarn, see some lovely knits and have a look at the ocean to boot!
