My, oh my...I think we're going to be here a while.
Yes, dear, just go to sleep and let the ladies do the shopping. We'll wake you up in a couple of hours.
This is what the other two-thirds of Strings and Things looks like. Musical instruments and some swifts and ball winders. Ukuleles and knitting equipment living in perfect harmony together. At least they don't sell bait.
I remember the very first yarn I bought here over a year ago. I didn't know how to knit then, so I bought some Cascade Fixation and made these:
Crocheted socks! Well, they're pretty heavy as socks go, so I would really call them more of a house sock. The Cascade Fixation is a very stretchy yarn, so unlike most socks, these socks have a ton of stretchiness to them.
They fit really well. I made them from the patterns in here: Learn to Crochet Socks book It's a good book--inexpensive with clear instructions and fun patterns using sportweight and worsted weight yarn. I like the Fixation yarn because it has elastic built into the yarn. Great stuff for crocheting items that you would like to make a little stretchier.
I found the dpn's I wanted, but I think I'll go easy on the yarn today. Let's do a little bit more sight-seeing in Hanalei and then head home, shall we?I love this church in Hanalei. So pretty. It's the Wai`oli Hui`ia Church and it was built in 1912. I don't really know all the history, but I'm sure it's seen some hurricane damage in all those years, especially from Hurricane Iwa in 1982 and Hurricane Iniki in 1992. Looks like it's well-maintained, though, doesn't it? So peaceful.
Some pretty tropical gingers at Chin Young Village.
View of Hanalei Bay as we depart the North Shore and head back to the East Side.
Heading home, some fun moss monsters in someone's yard:
That was a fun day; I hope you enjoyed our little trip to the North Shore. It sure is nice to get out of the house for a while. Tomorrow, we'll start a new quilting project.
