456Re: [SouthSuburbanSnB] Fiber Quest?
- Jan 12, 2007Hey, Theresa- was Donna (I think I'm remembering right) there Wednesday? I went online after I got home last Wednesday and found her It's a Wonderful Life book in five minutes- abebooks.com has it for $20! I figured you might go search it out for her too. I love book hunting- used to be a bookseller.Anyway, I hope to make it next week, if not I will post the information here and you can pass it on to her.--

OMG, you're killing me. Seriously. Killing. Me.
This sounds like a fantastic time, but I will be attending a first
birthday party in Elgin. And yes, I checked the map and realized that
both Elgin and this shop are on the same route. And yes, I had that
crazy-fun idea that maybe I could do both. But I really shouldn't.
Really. I mean it. Or I should mean it.
The party, btw, is for the daughter of the cousin who got the knitted
hat and scarf for Christmas. I really can't miss the party, no matter
how much my fiber-hoarding instincts go into overdrive at the thought
of a field trip. Plus it's still January. I have to be able to go a
month without enlarging my stash. One measly month!
Which brings me to a boast. I was in Naperville Wednesday. Yes, of
course I went to Kool Knits. Of course I did! But it was only to see
if they had any more of that purple Torino -- I somehow shorted
myself when we were there last month. I don't th ink it counts as
stash enhancement if you're just buying enough to fill in a gap like
that. (Right? Especially considering that they're going out of
business and dye lots may vary and a thousand other
Anyway. I did buy some purple Torino, but (get this) that was all. I
wandered around the store for a while, fondling and sighing and
fighting with myself, but in the end, I only bought enough Torino to
go along with what I already had. Yay me?
Now, if you want to put off your field trip until February.... <g>
starting the front of the cabled vest tonight :D
