Happy Friday one and all! Hayley and I have returned from our adventures across the pond, and what an adventure it was…full of inspiration (castles, lochs and plaid, oh my!), visits with fiber friends old and new, and a fantastic class with Justyna…Eastern uncrossed knitting…who knew?! Our minds are still blown!
It’s time. Time let you in on a little secret. The last couple of months I have been sleeping on a silk pillow case, and I’m here to tell you…it’s a game changer! I admit, I was skeptical…could it really be that great? Yes!! It’s made a huge difference in the bed head (really helps with the frizz factor on my curly hair) situation, not to mention how fantastic my face feels! I also use this one (different price point and works very well). And, I almost forgot. They stay cool. Don’t you just love a cool pillow case?!
After what feels like a decades long search, I have found the perfect (for me) Spring travel coat. Great price point. Packs lightly. Fits over everything. Repels rain. This coat definitely checks all the boxes. I think you will love it!

My travel knitting for this trip was Barlow, and I cannot recommend this pattern highly enough! Great texture and fun stripes keep the knitting interesting, while at the same time being easy as steak pie and hobnobs for TV or conversation knitting. And it flew off the needles!
