1) Assemble good friends.
2) Take ferry to Bainbridge Island. Wave at the birds and wonder why you can’t see the island today.
3) Have grown-up brunch at Café Nola, where the Bloody Mary’s are perfect. They have a small size that comes in a martini glass. I recommend this one so you have your wits about you for step 4.
4) Go to Churchmouse Yarn and Tea! They have their holiday displays up and lots of yummy yarns. If you weren’t careful in step 3 you’ll buy *way* too much, ‘cause it’s all so pretty and lovely. I was good and didn’t get the Handmaiden Cashmere Silk blend. I picked up the Malabrigo Angora and Malabrigo Worsted in lovely shades of purple that will become gloves. This is actually a test for a bigger project (shh…) if the Angora works like I hope as a trim then I just have to figure out how to afford enough for the big one. I wonder if Malabrigo offers yarn support to designers….?
5) Hit up Blackbird Café for Lattes and Mochas (it is Seattle after all) and take the ferry home.
