Story of Week and Stash Enhancements Story and Stash will be intermingled this time. Ted and I have been on 2 camping trips since I last podcaster. First trip was to Lost Valley Lake. on that trip I bought some souvenir yarn from Walmart in Owensville. Got a Mandala from lionBrand yarns, color is Gnome, and some RedHeart scrubby in a yellow and green color, which I find not pleasant to work with. when we returned home, I had this awesome mail from ontheround.      Next Camping trip was to the annual Bull Float trip. Only thing happened this time was I lost a toenail. When I returned home, on Monday I got my first installment of a 3 month Gilmore Girls yarn club from TheYarnAtHomeMom on Etsy.
