Well, as I mentioned yesterday, I made a little trip up to Yarn Theory. I got some Koigu for a little shawl that apparently WAS all the rage but I tend to be a little behind the crowd. However, the funny thing is, my friend Sallee was at a different yarn store on Saturday and bought yarn for the SAME thing! It’d be really weird if we bought the same yarn, but we didn’t.
Here’s 2 skeins of the skeins:
I also got some lovely yarn for a Christmas in July yarn swap/Dirty Santa at a knit-in on Tuesday. Maybe I should wait to show that just in case someone reading will be there (don’t want them to have any unfair advantages). I would like to state that I did not buy sock yarn and I did get enough to make something with. Maybe just a hat and mitts or something but not just that one skein of really pretty “but what should I do with it” yarn. Which is still great, don’t ge me wrong!
A friend of mine at work is going to be a grandmother so I bought a little skien of baby yarn to make a little hat and booties (if there’s enough) for the baby:
And I bought a book I’ve been wanting (Besides the last Harry Potter!):
The best part of this whole haul? I had a 40% off coupon I used on the book, she was having a sale on the “swap” yarn, and I had a store credit so I paid very little out of pocket!
After I left there, I wandered my way home some back roads and stopped at a orchard and winery store and bought some apple butter and cherry butter.
It was a gorgeous day to be out and about so I don’t feel quite as bad about spending so much of it on the sofa reading since I did get out some.
