We stopped at a few places along the I-5 in Washington on the way here, including Seattle Premium Outlets, Village Yarn & Tea in Shoreline, Washington, the Sunlight Cafe in Seattle and Weaving Works.
So far my yarn experiences have rated a "meh". I did get to see the Noro Kureon sock yarn and I absolutely hate to say it, but it was really disappointing. It doesn't feel all that great and it seems a little thick and thin in places. I may yet buy some though, just to try it. The sample I saw at Village Yarn & Tea looked surprisingly good.
We just finished one of the best Mexican meals we have ever had. We tried a small restaurant called Cancun Mexican Restaurant, and we both ate until we were stuffed and had leftovers and had our salsa bowl refilled and the bill was $10.95!! Very yummy! I'd highly recommend giving this place a try if you are ever near Newberg, Oregon.
I am so glad I've got my laptop and wireless internet, so I can jot everything down from this trip before I forget. The hardest thing about being away is missing the kitties.
Well, I'm exhausted and I think we'll be having an early morning tomorrow. We're going to try to go to a couple of yarn stores and a couple of outlet malls tomorrow morning, and after that we'll be heading south. We're not sure how far we'll go --- Maybe all the way to California!
More tomorrow. I'll actually get my camera out tomorrow.
P.S. The reason we're staying in Newberg is that the room with a jacuzzi in it was $30 cheaper here than in Portland. There. Now everyone knows I'm jacuzzi tub obsessed.
