Knitinsanity!!!

Yesterday was a yes good, very good day...It started out at 0415, when I got up and got ready to drive to my favorite knit shop in Plano - The Woolie Ewe - for their annual blowout sale. I got there at 0515 and armed with my list, I set out to grab as many items on it that I could. For some reason, I thought that the sale started at 0300. Dumb me. It really started at 0500; so, it turns out that I wasn't very late at all. It was a good sale - 50% off e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g until 0800, then I think it was 35% off. For the first time ever, books and needles were included in the sale. What a deal! Why wouldn't a person get up at the crack of dawn for those terms?

It was crowded. There was a definite traffic pattern, and even if you were walking with the flow, it felt as if you were in a school of salmon swimming upstream. I meant to take a few crowd shots, but all I had with me was my cellphone, and the pics would not have been that great.



I managed to get all the yarn on my list, plus four skeins. (The little colorful ones in the middle of the picture are the rogues.)











I also grabbed several books that have been on my wish list.








After paying for my purchases, I drove back home and was laying down on the couch for a little nap by 0700.

I got up at 1030, cleaned up and drove back to Dallas to spend the rest of the day with my friend Jules. We took a walk, ate lunch and saw two movies. I will save the movie reviews for another day. I got back home by 1800 (6pm), had supper, watched a little tee vee while flipping through my new books and fell asleep rather early. Wonder why...

Merry Karma out.

Ooooh, looks like lots of good loot! Since I'm on that blasted NY resolution yarn buying moratorium, I guess I'll have to try to live vicariously through the blogs.

Well - that was before Jan 1; so, it was the last hurrah for a while. I was in Barnes and Noble today looking at books. I added a few to my list of wants for another day.
