San Francisco is very awesome. We were sorry that we only had one day to explore it – and we decided (we’re not sorry about this bit) to leave the big cameras checked at the hotel rather than carry them with us.

I couldn’t resist having a bit of fun with the hills. Everything we wanted to see felt like it was all uphill, both ways.

We spent part of the morning on a walk though (up?) Chinatown.

These shots are so cheesy, but I get a kick out of them every time.

The houses are the prettiest I’ve ever seen. I love them even more than I love jellybean homes in St John’s, and that’s saying something!

Finally, we achieved the final stop on the fibre tour – Imagiknit. Holy selection, and it’s all good.

I had a really tough time narrowing it down, but ended up settling on 100% tencel, hand dyed. This is where I got the weft for my latest palindrome scarf. The tencel adds strength and shine, but still has fabulous drape.

If you look closely, you can see a tired Tito in the ‘man check’ area 😉

We loved San Francisco so much that we’re planning a return trip, just to spend a few more days in the city. It was a great place to unwind from our road trip!
