Show and Tell

Can I see by a raise of hands, how many of you want to see the damage?

Uh - huh. I thought so. Y'all love a good train wreck, as long as it happened to MY pocketbook and not yours!

When I left in the wee small hours of the morning Saturday, Scott pleaded his case from under the nice warm covers, "Don't spend any money."

"Don't spend ANY money?" My life was passing in front of my eyes. I mean, does he go to the hardware store if he isn't going to buy SOMETHING?

He peered at me with intensity born out of futility, "You know what I mean."

So I promised him I wouldn't bring home any yarn that I could adopt order later. This confined my purchases to handpaints, because they are one of a kind, or small purveyors that do not sell via the internet.

And I kept my word.

I just didn't realize how big that word was.

(Please bear in mind that many of these are destined for Christmas and birthday gifts)

Opal said...

Oooh. I love the Lunasea. The name, the colours, everything. It's perfect.

Michelle said...

Wow! I'd love to see this shop that sells all of these yarns! What a great haul! Gonna be hard giving those away at Christmas!

Margene said...

Oh my, oh my, oh my...one is more beautiful than the next!

La Cabeza Grande said...

Once again, Opal and I are one the same wavelength with "Lunasea". Your Christmas giftees will be most fortunate!

Frankly, Susan, you showed enormous restraint with your well-chosen bounty. Unlike a certain someone I know, you didn't walk out with sweater-sized lots of everything you touched for two years in a row.

Bells said...

oh, that blue moon looks every bit as good as I imagine it's supposed to look. One day I'm gonna get me some of that!

You did very well stopping where you did.

Kniterella said...

Jejune said...

OMG, that's a lot of yarn considering you didn't spend ANY money, LOL! Well done ;)
