Shhhh … I’ve been bad. BR is finally at home until his next project and he wants to get a car to replace his 11 year old totally beat up Integra, and we have to start IM at school next year and BR is allergic to our patio (moldy issues after the flood) so we need to get it torn down, and I’m out yarn shopping!

First I found out that my Secret Pal spoilee didn’t get the package I sent a couple of weeks ago, so I went to Knit Picks for some sock stuff (it is most definitely the year of the sock), and I never did get more than an order number but suffice it to say I bought at least 10 skeins of yarn there. Then I helped someone destash some red Cotton Ease. Isn’t that selfless of me?

Then I had planned on going to Full Thread Ahead’s Superball sale, but knew I wouldn’t get there until later, hopefully during the “buy one, get one 1/2 off time section”. So I show up, and run into Cookie and Kristi, who tell me I’m too late! I said “Are they out of yarn?”, and Cookie said that it was the last 3 minutes of the “everyhing in the store 1/2 off” sale, but you have to be in line in 3 minutes. Luckily Hollis had set out a pile of red yarn just for me — okay, for Valentine’s Day, but still — so I grabbed a bunch and waited in line. When I got to the end of the line I realized that there were actually still 3 minutes to go so I did a bit more shopping, and got back in line. I totally forgot to check out the Karaoke, and forgot to look at the knitting needles, but I did end up with 6 more skeins of Cherry Tree Hill, Koigu and Fixation. After my second time in line I went back and checked out the needles and got some Brittany dpns I needed, full price, which made me feel less guilty about buying so much from Hollis on sale!

I’m afraid to find out my final tally from today, but it did fill a large shopping bag. I can’t take pictures now because BR is busy playing video games here and on the other computer, but sometime soon I’ll treat you to some yarn porn.
