I think I'm covered until 2007. This past Saturday 4 very highly caffeinated yarn fiends when searching for... YARN of course! At 9:00 a.m. we met at our local neighborhood caffeine dealer, grabbed a hot pastry and headed to 5 local yarn shops. Here are the results, I have all the yarn needed to finish my holiday projects as well as some stuff for my secret pal exchanges. The blues are for gloves and a hat, the Malabrigo for moi, the cotton candy pink turned into a scarf that night, and some wonderful Yarntini in Gimlet which I will work with after the holiday gifts are complete. I guess Yarntini is a hot commodity, because I had 2 girls chasing me all around the store until I purchased it. The owner of the shop pulled 2 hanks out of her special stash and said they were the last 2 she had. The pressure of these stalkers following me around made me give one back, and as soon as I set it on the counter to give back to the owner it was swooped up by one of the "yarn stalkers" and she promptly pulled out her credit card, paid for it and left. I hope she enjoys it, she worked for it! But no one told her it had way less yardage than mine and wasn't really enough to make a pair of adult socks. Oh well, maybe she has really teeny feet!
