I'm Such a Slut

Look at the S.E.X I just had. S.E.X at the Sewing Bird A local Sewing shop - The Sewing Bird - is closing up shop soon. Everything, and I mean everything, in their store was 25% off. What's a girl to do but whip out the credit card and go hog wild? I got 10 Balls of Linie 11 Alpha Linie 11 Alpha 5 Balls Karabella Aurora 8 Karabella Aurora 8 10 hanks Berroco Cotton Twist Berroco Cotton Twist 10 Skeins Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece Holy Sheep! This is the Alpine Lilac Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece And what they call "Nymph" Nymph 3 balls Plymouth Royal Bamboo Plymouth Royal Bamboo Some sock yarn of course. And I finally found solids! Sock Yarn Haul That's Opal Gems in the hank on the left, and the rest is Fortissima Socka. I nearly fell over when I stopped by and saw "Store Closing Soon! 25% off Storewide Sale". I had to sit down inside as I looked at all the possibilities before me. I know I'll be back. They're most likely closing down completely in July, but have the ability to hang around until Dec. 31st if need be. But I know everything I get from here on is at least 25% off. I saved $84 this trip! Oy, the credit card is smoking. Also, I've been saying "Oy" a lot lately. It might be spelled "Oi" but at the very least, I wonder what's with the Jewish undertones in my speech lately? Also also, I got home from the S.E.X and checked the mail - after going to the tennis courts to take those photos, I went inside and while I downloaded the pics, opened it up. Look what Bezzie sent me! Bezzie's Gift I think the mailman stepped on the package or something. That is strangely marked up. But look! White Chocolate M&Ms! I'm in heaven. They are so, so, so GOOD! I hope they aren't a limited time only for Pirates of the Carribean thing. I haven't been able to find them around here, but I'm going to keep and eye open and stock up! Thank you so much Bezzie!

Holy cow! That's a lot of yarn. Of course you had to wip out your credit card! I would have done the same. :)

Oh my stars and garters, I think I need to go change my panties. What a luscious haul! I'd like to fondle your Linie 11 Alpha and stroke your Cotton Twist. So. Yummy.

BTW, I love all the macros and big pictures. I have cable modem, so bring it on!

This was such a fun post! I love yarn p*rn, such a feast for the eyes, and awsome deal for you. My birthday is coming up and I am pretty sure hubby's giving me yarn money. I can't wait to go on a spending spree!!

I'm surprised you credit card didn't melt from overuse with all that yarn. It's all gorgeous. Your photos are really coming along too.

Thank you! I'm trying to get really good pics. It's all Zib's fault for cluing me in about yarn pr0n to begin with. Though she doesn't seem to be interested in even looking at mine when I post about it. Hmm...

zib said...

AM SO! I clicked right over once I'd actually read your post. I've been preoccupied with our knittyland invasion.

I do *swoon* in your general direction. Wowza on the SEX and awesome yarnos!

Hey, that's quite a lot of yarn...
That Berroco Cotton Twist makes great wash/dish clothes by the by. Very mercerized cotton looking.

Canvas Works (my lys) is having a 15% storewide sale for Mother's Day. Yippee!

Nice sandals!
