* a few random chances at giving RAK’s on Ravelry.
* breakfast at our Bob’s Big Boy breakfast buffet. scout loves putting her plates together.
* taking a day trip to santa monica and visiting wildfiber for a stash enhancement. included two yummy dark brown skeins of madelinetosh merino light (destined to become the ever so popular “beekeeper’s quilt” by tiny owl knits) , this skein of “candlewick” in madelinetosh dk (going to be a couple pair of baby booties for our youth group directors twins), and three skeins of mirasol qina (for a velveteen rabbit for the babies).
