Apparently some psychic part of me started celebrating last night before I even had the appt. Went to Knit Night at The Sow's Ear and treated myself to some loot. They had gotten a new shipment of brilliantly colored, highly fondle-able and sparkly-shiny new yarns in and I partook of the bounty:
Cascade Fixation Sock Yarn. I don't like the feeling of knitting with it because it's really stretchy but I loved the sample socks they had and I got an adorable free sock pattern with each pair; a twisted rib one and a tulip one. They'll make great heavy duty socks to wear instead of slippers at night in the winter.
Four skeins of Rowan KidSilk Haze to make "A Day In The Life Of A Cat' dress scarves with. It's almost as thin as cobweb and is a mohair/ silk blend. The red even has some glitter stuff in it. Sigh...bliss.
Knit Night wasn't really crowded. I think a lot of folks don't know that it is every other week in teh summer. There was one REALLY nasty lady there last night. She kind of put a damper on the festivities. She's a regular and is generally negative but last night she was in a real funk. I'll remember to sit out of hearing range next time. Otherwise it was pleasant to visit with the cronies and knit a bit.
Tonight is movie and pizza night at Chez Bee. Off to have a slice, watch Ghost Rider (guess who's choice that was?) and work a bit more on some baby socks for a coworker. Have a great Saturday night.
