I Don't Know How It Happened & Stuff

I'm serious now, I mean really serious. I do not know how this happened. I went into my LYS only to get a gift card for a friend's daughter that just graduated from high school. She is an avid knitter and I guess I kinda thought I would feed her addiction. Yeah, I'm bad, whatever. The first thing I did was ask if the newest Limited Edition Tofutsie *oc* yarn was in, it was. So maybe that is where it started going awry. Like I need more sock yarn.

The next thing I knew I was walking out of the store with a large bag full of yarn and stuff. Of course the new Tofutsie. In addition to that there was eight skeins of Lamb's Pride bulky, a pattern for a huge felted bag, size 13 36" bamboo circular needles, a set of size 0 dpns and a set of size 2 dpns (can you really ever have enough dpns for knitting *oc*s?), I don't know. Here's a picture anyways.

I feel like that guy on the commercial except, I'm up to my eyeballs in yarn, somebody please help me!!!!

Sara and I went looking for a wedding dress and shoes. We found a lovely one pretty quick. We were both extremely happy about that. But, I did pray before we went that we would quickly find a dress with minimal stress. I am a prayer but I usually do not pray over such things. Maybe I should start, huh? Of course, you will have to wait until October to see how beautiful my only little girl is in her dress.

My step-sister, Lisa, and her step-daughter, Christina, came to spend a couple of days with me (no picture, they would probably kill me). We had such a lovely time. We didn't do much, primarily talked and laid around the pool. I hope they come back soon. To my great joy, Christina was totally enthralled by the whole knitting/spinning thing. You know seldom do you find people who actually give a flip. Made me feel good. I showed off my fiber stash, demonstrated spinning on a wheel and spindle and showed off ALL my knitting works in progress. Great fun!!!!

They are going to kill me when/if they find I posted this picture (I don't think any of them actually take the time to read my blog so I think I'm pretty safe). Here are my three kiddo's acting silly in the pool. Of course, the girl on the left is Sara (26), Aaron in the middle (28), and Jordan on the right (22).

Oh yeah, remember the $1300 cellular phone bill? The cellular company knocked it down to $300. Oh yeah, that's what I'm talking about.

Our names must be related to how we choose yarn, because I swear I just walked out my LYS with the exact same Tofutsies as you, again! It must be a crazy Peggy mind-meld.

Hooray on the easy wedding dress shopping, I wore an old family dress, but everyone else I know has horror stories. Prayer certainly can help!

And the cell bill, WOW! Have a great weekend Peggy!

You and yarn! How funny. I did pick up my knitting needles only to have to rip the whole thing out again! And it has been so long that I forgot how to cast on. Argh. I'll get it. Someday.

Peggy, I sure wish that I owned a yarn store next door to you. I would be in the bucks.
Hope I didn't offend you too much with my big breeding explanation. I just reread it, and you're right - too much information.

Peggy said...

Just to let everyone know. I was absolutely NOT offended by Alpaca Granny's post about the breeding alpacas. Actually I found it quite interesting. You know how I am though, always acting silly.

I can't wait to see the bag when it's done!

I'm learning that one can never have enough dpns. Isn't there something so enchanting about sock yarn? No matter how much I have, there is always room for more.

I'm very glad the wedding dress search went so smoothly, it must have been divine intervention.

You are so darn cute!!

You can never have too many needles, too much yarn or fiber or too many children.....that is my motto for sure!!
