Don't Stop Me Now!

I'm having such a good time, I'm having a ball.* Quartet of Sock Yarn So, as I said in yesterday's comments, I was heading to Charlotte Yarn (see sidebar for linkage) after work yesterday. I did indeed get the last ball of Trekking XXL in Color #77. Trekking XXL #77 Between the leftovers from the Sixth Sense Socks and this ball, I think I'll have enough for 2 more pairs. I also got a second ball of Trekking XXL in color #5. Trekking XXL #05 I had a feeling I'd already bought one, but I reasoned that I wouldn't be upset if I had 2 in my stash. Again, it'll probably make 3 pairs between the two balls. Then I saw some Sockotta that I liked. Color #9. Sorta denimy. Sockotta #09 But the whole reason I went was to get some of this. Fortissima 1776 It's Fortissima 1776. Supposedly it knits up into Stars and Stripes. We'll see. I hear that it's hard to find because stores keep running out of it. Well, if anyone out there wants some, Charlotte Yarn has at least 8-10 more balls of it. I'd be happy to act as courier. It's $18 plus tax. Oh, and I picked this up as well. Green Chibi! It'll be my purse Chibi. It matches! Purhaps the best part of the whole trip to the yarn shop yesterday, was that I was offered a part time job there! Working for yarn! Would I like to do that? Hell yeah! I'll start in June and work a weekend here and there. So the yarn pr0n will be in abundance, and this time, I don't even have to buy it all! Heh. Well, maybe. Oh, and I'm meeting up with some knitting friends today to do a bit more yarn shopping, so um, yeah. Tune in tomorrow for some more. *One my favorite Queen songs. It's an apt title for this post don'tcha think?

I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing - that you go to the LYS so often they put you on the payroll, ROFL. Congrats!!

What a great collection of new sock yarns - the 1776 sounds like a lot of fun - can't wait to see how it turns out! :)

Ooo cool, working for yarn, you must be stoked. Recently it looks like you're there as often as the staff anyway.

You're going to need a bigger place to accommodate your stash at this rate!

You're getting a job in a yarn shop? Hurrah!

And I have stashing problems? Geez...
