Bethesda Deliciousness

What is more tasty on a hot, hot, hot summer day than a mint chip ice cream cone from here

unless it's going to a yarn store

that has many flavors of yummy yarn

and getting four flavorsome scoops of

and one scrumptious scoop of

Many thanks to Andrea and Dietrich of Knit and Stitch = Bliss in Bethesda, MD for making me feel so very welcome in the store and for pointing me in the direction of Gifford's Ice Cream and Candy.

Knit and Stitch is easy to get to on the Metro. (I nearly passed out when I saw the escalator at the Bethesda stop--but, thankfully, there's an elevator.)

The store is comfortable with lovely yarns and Andrea and Dietrich are two of the nicest and helpful salespeople I've ever met. I didn't think I'd want to buy yarn when it's 98 degrees out, but. . .

The tasty bits of "souvenir yarn" purchased are:
Shi Bui Knits sock yarn. The color is Wasabi.
And I couldn't resist Art Yarns Beaded Silk Rhapsody in silver.

Beads and silk and ice cream. Oh, my! So what if it's hot outside, looks like you're having a good time.

Yay! I'm so glad you stopped in! I always stop by when I'm down there visiting my mom.

Ohh! I love the beaded yarn. Do you have plans for it?

ahhh ... the escalator brings back many fond memories of my visits to DC.
Hope you're still in a cool spot - nasty here in nyc -

I love the ShiBui Sock - got a couple of skeins in what else but a rainbow colorway; it's got some wasabi in it as well!
