Home Again

We had a great time on our mini vacation. We left later than planned on Saturday because we were worried about freezing rain. It never came and the drive was uneventful. We dropped our bags at the hotel and headed to the mall - Somerset Collection.
The first stop was Restoration Hardware. We were hoping to find lights for our house. They didn't have what we wanted but we had fun shopping the store. I made Beth try this cool hat on. The plan was to buy her one but she didn't want to carry it around. We never made it back. Next year.

We spend some time in Pottery Barn. I collect pitchers like this for Myrtle Beach but it might stay here in the new house. The picture is deceiving - it is 15" high. And heavy - I had to carry it to the car. We also bought large baskets. I saw them in Myrtle in the summer but we had no way to get them home. They took up a bit of room in the bed of the truck.
Sunday was Outlet Mall Day. Great Lakes Crossing is huge!! 185 stores. It took some time to see it all.

American Thanksgiving is Thursday. All the stores are gearing up. Look at the hours for the mall. Open on Thursday at 6pm until 10pm on Friday. Yes, open for 28 straight hours.
And a bit of knitting content. This was a display that we saw in Macy's today. Balls and cones of yarn.

Here is Exploration Station so far. There wasn't a lot of time for knitting while we were away.
Hopefully it will be finished this week. It's been a fun, interesting knit without being so hard that you get frustrated.
