Weekend Update 8-21-11
Last weekend we tied the knot! It was a beautiful day. Lots of friends and family there to share in the fun.
We were married at his parents' house up in the mountains. We stayed at a hotel close by. The next morning we went to breakfast with friends who stayed at the same hotel. During the meal, I noticed on the placemat an ad for a yarn shop. Of course I had to stop there!
Frolicking Feet in Mandarin Lime 100% Superwash Merino and Miss Babs Yummy in Spring Tulip 100% Merino Wool.
After that we went back to his parents' to pick up all our stuff and my dog and we sat and hung out for a while. They get so many Hummers there!
There aren't any pictured but we got to see some males. We only get one female at a time at home ... and I'm pretty sure its the same bird, LOL!
I learned a few things recently. I'm pretty crafty, and I do well mixing colors. I have a lot of stash yarn ... I stop counting sock yarns when I get to 100. My house needs work, I need dental work ... I don't need to buy yarn. I have plenty and I don't need to hoard it until I find the "perfect" pattern and let yarn sit on the shelf while I purchase more. Plus if it really doesn't go witht the pattern I can just rip it and reclaim it.
You're all witnesses to this ... NO MORE YARN for the rest of the year. There are two exceptions. I told a friend I would knit her fingerless mitts and she wants alpaca. I don't have that in my stash. The other exception is I have my Rockin' Socks Club coupon for this year - so I get to use it and that may be a $150 purchase. OK there are three exceptions ... gift cards are free money. I can buy yarn with gift cards at any time.
