Is everyone stuffed?
I am! I don't think I even want to look at pie, turkey or stuffing again until..... Christmas!
I hope everyone had a great holiday! I certainly did my capitalistic best to spend spend spend! On yarn of course! I did get a little tiny tiny bit of christmas shopping done. Where to start? I may have to do this in 2 parts! I went to my favorite yarn store in Skaneateles (pronounced Skinny Atlas) New York on Tuesday. This is the yarn store with the 3 dollar sale bin. Wanna see?
Here is a close up of the tweedy yarn
I am thinking mittens with this.
I also bought this (not in the sale bin)
Love the new Lopi colors!
Now I really went there to buy this book
I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!! I already made the hat from it. I didn't use "Cork" yarn, I used some left over from my poncho. I don't really know what it is but it worked! Here see for yourself
I bought a couple of other books last week too
Really, I am a dork, I have way too much on my hands! SIGH......... the week was just not long enough. Please stay tuned tomorrow for part II "The Trip to the Alpaca farm"

I've been wondering about the "25 Bags to Knit" book - looking forward to hearing what you think of it!

Skaneateles! I know Skaneateles and how it's pronounced too! I haven't been there in about a million years, but I have a lot of family from that general area. I've heard good things about the LYS there, hope to check it out one day!

Curious to know how the 25 Bags to Knit book is too. Amazon is always recommending it to me...

Hi Beth~your hat is pretty! I really like the yarn you got too. Very nice selection--and a $3 bin? WOW
