The projects just keep coming out of the woodwork...

Today I went to the craft store near Lala Port to pick up some yarn for a larger crochet project. I thought I'd try my hand at using the double-ended hook to make a reversible duster. The craft store didn't have as large a selection of yarn as I would have liked, but I did manage to find some colors that look good together. Now I just have to hope that the amount I bought will be enough to finish the project, since I swiped up all they had on the shelf.

About 25% of the store was dedicated to beadwork materials; if I ever worked with beads, I'd probably be in seventh heaven. The remainder of the store was mostly bolts of cloth. I don't do much sewing, but I sure wish I did. The Asian fabrics, in particular, are just beautiful.

After that, I dropped by Lala Port to pick up a few items and decided to try eating at one of the restaurants there. They had potato and sausage gratin on the menu, which I asked for without sausage. Little did I know there was also stealth ham in it. <sigh> I know, it's my fault for not asking whether there was any other meat included in it. At least ham is bright pink and relatively easy to pick out. And the chocolate float I ordered for dessert was good.

If it's not raining tomorrow, I might take a trip out to Otsu to have a look around.
