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.
