San Francisco was wonderful. A bit stressful with the scary news that the cat was ill, but still wonderful. Despite having been to the SF Bay Area many times, I haven't spent much time in the city itself. This situation was remedied on this trip.
I took a number of long walks through the neighborhood, and was continuously blown away by the amazing public art. This wonderful mural is on the Women's Building.
This rainbow-colored candy shop was a feast for the eyes as well as the palette. In addition to candy, they had epic macarons. I tried a "rose geranium" flavored one - it was light and chewy and full or unique flavor.
Based on the hoodies, tees, and other merch, Zeitgeist appears to have updated its slogan to "Hangovers installed and serviced" which I'm quite fond of. The previous motto ("warm beer, cold women") was also quite good.
These are the wonderful "Dashing" fingerless mitts from Knitty. The (free!) pattern is here. I did a yarn substitution, and made these using Shokay's Shambala yarn, which is 100% yak down and worked out great - soft, cozy, and warm.
These guys stayed behind with our wonderful hostess, who made everything possible. Thanks, LM!
