There was a SALE

I have finished most of the Christmas shopping, and am now trying to put the finishing touches on some knitting. Stupid Optimistic Deb thinks she can knit two cowls and six or eight hats in the next month. This stupidity optimism caused me to have an accident at the yarn shop on Saturday –


Jim, move this table over here. No, over here, by this rock. What do you mean, what am I doing? I’m posing my yarn. No, not posing WITH the yarn. Look, just move the table.

What am I going to do with over a thousand yards of laceweight denim-colored yarn, you ask? Well, if you don’t know, I’m not going to tell you. Hopefully the purple will somehow turn into this, so I have a gift for my mother-in-law, should she decide to show up.

I was only going to get those two skeins when I happened by a sign that said 30% off.

People can’t just pass by a sign that says 30% off. Amiright or amiright? And anyway, it’s llama. Llama! How often do you see that? So soft, so cozy, so tweedy. Yum. And it was only $5 a skein! Name one person who wouldn’t buy $5 llama yarn.


Jim. Help me move the table over by this fern. JIM. The table! I want to move it again. Isn’t this fern gorgeous? Yes, I am still taking pictures of yarn.

It’s hard knitting surprises for people when they’re up in your grill asking you to make lunch all the time.


What? No, this isn’t new, I’ve had it for a long time. What do you mean, why did I buy more yarn when I already have yarn? Because I didn’t have THAT kind, OBVIOUSLY. Listen, you don’t need to worry about it. Just hush up and help me move the table again.
