I went back to the yarn tree to take advantage of the last day of the sale. I couldn’t resist the call of the Koigu any longer. I fondled it on my last visit and I had to go back. I see a serious problem developing, I have yet to knit one sock and look at the stash forming.
Damn the Yarn Tree and their late Sunday hours. While there I almost bought one of those sheep tape measures then I thought better of it. I wanted a retractable one but couldn’t really get with the sheep, enter the One Skein secret pal. Look at the package I just got out of the mailbox.
She sent the cutest tape measure. Retractable and without a sheep in site. Instead it’s covered with fruit and ladybugs. She must be a mind reader because I was at Knitaway yesterday eyeing the Lambs Pride. Every one speaks so highly of it but I have never used it before. This is some kind of freaky coincidence or she can really read minds. She gave my the most beautiful stitch markers (I’m literally using a piece of ribbon and those chunky Susan bates markers right now) and a card that Missy said looked like me. She even packed it all in an envelope with Knitting needles on it. I love everything.
*I had to snatch the measure from Missy’s clutches just now.*
I have been alternating between sewing and knitting for the last few days. I’m having fun keeping so busy, although things like dinner and laundry have been sacrificed. = )
And thanks to Ms. Saunshine my beading obsession may pick back up. Just look at the beautiful things she made, and while sick at that. Every couple of months I get worked into a frenzy like I’m in now. It’ll pass but until then I need a few extra hours in the day. = )
