Webs. Oh, how I love Webs. They have the greatest deals and the hugest selection. Hours tick by unnoticed when I am in that place. With the aid of the awesome shopping list function of Ravelry, I was a well prepared and focused shopper. Almost everything I bought was for a specific pattern or was for a specific purpose.
After a short yarn sensory overload recovery period at the hotel, I headed out to downtown Northampton for some shop browsing, wine purchasing and dinner eating. I finished up the night drinking wine, eating an amazing slice of raspberry chocolate cheesecake and knitting in my hotel room (king size bed with down pillows!).The next morning, I woke up to about 8 inches of new snowfall. I checked out of the hotel and after burning mega calories trying to unearth my car, I headed out to breakfast. I had scoped out the breakfast menu at the Haymarket Cafe when I bought my dessert the night before, so I knew I was in for a treat.
It amazes me how the price of things adjusts when you get outside of the Boston area. This delicious french toast breakfast with a fresh-pressed apple juice was just over $8!
