An Afternoon of Yarn

Anyone who knows me knows I can't pass up a sale. So today after my training for Primerica, I went to Yarn Garden and met up with Anphoe there. The funny thing is, following me into the store immediately wasn't Anphoe, but it was costumchick! Speaking costumchick, she was mean and "made" me join yet another KAL. Go check it out and sign up!!

Anyways, so Yarn Garden had everything 40% off! EVERYTHING! When Denise hold a sale, she has a real sale! Here is what I got from the few hours of shopping:

A Gathering of Lace by Meg Swason, Knitting on the Edge by Nicky Epstein, Noni Lattice Bag pattern and Sustermann Step (mit Aloe Vera und Jojoba Öl - with Aloe Vera and Jojoba Oil)

I also got my friends some sock yarns and Christmas secret pal a pattern and some yarn and accessory, but I don't want to show it, in case they read my blog (in fact, I know they do). I'll reveal once the package is sent.

Afterwards, Anphoe and I went to Panera Bread to have some lunch and wind the lace yarn we got awhile ago. I actually bought a digital scale at LnT for pretty cheap for this purpose as well:

All the yarn!!

See the scale?

Anphoe and I had loads of fun! Now only if both of us knew that we were gonna join the Mystic Waters KAL, we would have also gotten some blue lace... Blue lace, anyone? anyone? Com'on costumechick!

We sure did have lots of fun. Specially finding the Panera Bread. :D

Which Panera is that? I don't think it's North Haven and I'm not 100% sure it's Hamden.

It must be the one in Meriden, Marla. It's a good's hardly ever busy.

Woa that's seriously a lot of yarn! I'll be really excited to see your Noni bag though - those look really cute.

I missed the sale...crap.

I should buy Gathering of Lace. I drool over it every time I go into the bookstore, yet always leave it behind.

Maybe it will be my Rhinebeck book to look for??

Also, were you one of the basil girls? I have it.
