Ack!


So, visiting my family we inevitably ended up in AC Moore. I hadn't planned on purchasing a thing ( I was delusional; I realize that now...). My sister, in an effort to get my mother knitting, had recently purchased some fun yarn for her. It worked.

The shopping was meant to outfit mom with the appropriate sized needles and a contrast yarn. Well, we did get those items, plus a few more:

9 skeins of laceweight mohair in greys

5 skeins of laceweight mohair in blues (this is MINE - who could resist this stuff at 50% off then an additional 10% with my teacher discount?)

1 small knitting bag

1 very tangled skein of the original fun yarn which they discounted because we spent a good twenty minutes disentangling the thing from the snarl of sale yarn

AND

1 skein of wool look a like that will become Heather's wonderful smocked gloves! (I just knew my sister wouldn't be able to resist the pattern! It will be a while, but she promises pics when done.)

Several hours later and a number of dollars poorer we returned home full of satisfaction.

WHAT? no mention of the Knit-out and Crochet Too? Where you won quite the honor? Fastest hooker, was it? (hmm...dubious title....) Erica ratted you out! Congrats!

Um, yes bragging rights! You should have seen her little hook fly! It was great!

Thanks ladies! I just wasn't up to blogging last night but the post is up there now! I'm still a bit in shock at "winning".
