sister and yarn goodness
last weekend dad and i drove to austin to see my sister who was visiting a friend. our plan was to have brunch at the south congress street cafe which turned into lunch because we got off to a late start. i highly recommend this joint and even more so i highly recommend not going over the weekend. however, should you decide to offer your custom to this popular SoCo eatery over a saturday or sunday~ expect a 45min plus wait. this worked out for dad and i because we were 45 minutes late.
amongst all of the retro airstream turned gourmet catering vans, old motels which used to rent by the hour turned nostalgic sleeping accommodations and over populated good restaurants is hill country weavers. known for their huge supply of almost any make of yarn including imported japanese yarn goodness producers habu~ this place will keep me occupied for hours.
