So where oh where did I go that made me wish I had all the money in the world???
I"ll give you a hint...
It's sort of hard to give a hint on blog, so there it is. Webs. It was fabulous. The store itself was huge, ginormous, awe inducing, but the warehouse OMG. I could have spent SO. MUCH. MONEY. And not only would I need a million dollars to buy the yarn, but I'd also need a house big enough to have a Yarn Room in it. Ooh, wouldn't that be fabulous?
I only had about 45 minutes there, it was a quick pop in before our Godson's 2nd birthday party, so I didn't have enough time to slowly go through shelf by shelf and look and see what I could find, I did a quick once through grabbing this and that - and boy did I get some good deals!
I stuck pretty much to the sale stuff and got a few really good deals, for the most part (3 out of 4) I know what I want to knit with the yarn, but one of them was a "just because it's a good deal" purchase. This one
Originally 14.50 a ball, a merino/silk blend, I got it for 5.99 a ball. I don't know what I'm going to make with it, but it will be LOVELY. Just lovely.
I think I have my fall knitting all planned out now, all I have to do at this point is actually knit it!!
ANd here's the birthday boy
And what a party it was! He was the center of attention, was more or less angelic about posing for pics all day, and had a blast. It was wonderful to spend time with DH's family in this relaxed setting, and they are in MA so the weather was wonderful, we were even able to be OUTSIDE. Can you imagine? Well maybe you can, because maybe you live somewhere where it's been less than 95 degrees most of the summer, but here outside has become like outside in February - just not anything anyone really does on purpose. Anyway, it was a great trip, good times with family, and the birthday boy thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing.
We have a new car, and Pixie discovered a new seat for herself on this ride
Seriously, isn't she just the cutest little thing with her paws on the arm rest? Like it was made for her comfort.
Knitting did happen, quite a bit of it in fact, but nothing to show other than large blobs of stockinette, so I'll wait until they look a little more interesting.
