Don't Stop Me Now!
I'm having such a good time, I'm having a ball.* 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. 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. 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. But the whole reason I went was to get some of this. 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. 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?
