February 25, 2008

Well, here it is, almost 5pm and still I have not got dinner on. I would rather be here sitting at the computer writing and telling everyone what a great time I had on Friday with Janice and the hundreds of yarno's at Stitches. I don't know what I was thinking it would be like. The yarn was soo beautiful I wanted to take it all home with me, but sanity won over. I wanted a home to keep it in. Purchasing too much would have meant yarn without a home. I was told by a wise one to have a plan in mind. I made it. It was to buy sock yarn. I couldn't get into to much trouble right? I bought some Brooks Farm finger weight and a pattern called Knitting Fairy. It is a swinging summer shell for girls. I want to make this for my granddaughter's birthday in September. She shouldn't out grow the pattern for a few more years, so I do have some time to make it. For my new grandson to be born in April, I bought a top down cardigan pattern and cotton Tweed DK from Cabin Fever. I also had to have the buttons to match. I couldn't resist the Socks that Rock yarn and yarn from Pigeonroof Studios for socks. I was also able to pick up some plain yarn, 1 pink variegated and 1 green,brown, and blue variegated yarn on sale. The woman with the eye helped me find one of the yarns I went for, Opal. It was in a sale bend just sitting there waiting to be taken home. I forgot one important item, a blocking board. Yes, I decided my thumbs and my husbands thumbs needed a break and went ahead and got the puzzle pieces to make the board. I can't wait to try it out. Oh my gosh. Remember when I said I went with a plan, well I wanted a Jorana Paige bag ever since I saw one. Janice and I stopped there before wen did any real shopping and coveted. We returned to the scene of the crime and each purchased one. I got the Bella, black licorice. It's wonderful.
