#29: I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED

From Knitting, etc.

It has been a long week, so I thought to treat myself after work with a trip to my most favorite LYS, A Tangled Skein. I arrived with a plan: buy two skeins of Cascade Ecological Wool. An un-dyed, sturdy, beautiful, reasonably priced bulky yarn.

They were out. So I ended up chatting with the lovely gal working in the shop. Things start happening. Touching too much yarn. I get invited into the brand new storage room they're renting in the building. I'm shown an entire box of Cascade Eco Duo, an un-dyed, worsted weight, two-toned alpaca and merino blend.

It's so lovely and so soft that I think I got confused because I left the store with eight skeins and a badly dented credit card. I don't even know how that skein of Malabrigo ended up in my bag, too. It's a good thing I got a discount. Afterwards, I gleefully called my best friend on a yarn-high. A few hours later, I realized what I had done.

Lesson learned: Don't let them take you to the back storage room. You'll have no self-control.

Also... I'm still looking for some Ecological Wool, so if you have some in your stash you'd like to trade, let me know. :)

Hi, I am visiting from New Friend Friday.

I also enjoy wool and knitting. Since last year I am determined to finish more projects than start them.

Have a beautiful end of the week. xxx

Hi there. I came over from New Friend Friday. It's my first time joining in the meme.

My grandmother crocheted, but I never learned. We've all got one of her afghans though, which we hold near to our hearts.

Just popped over from New Friend Friday ;)
I can imagine my own lack of self -control if I was allowed out the back of any craft or fabric shop! I have been known to dabble in wool among other things...

You sure know how to make a girl jealous. What kind of eco are you looking for? I have a lovely brown, three skeins.

I knit...although I have not advanced my skills in awhile, but everytime I go into the yarn store (and we have two divine ones here) I come out with a load of beautiful, gorgeous yarn and no $$$. Cannot wait to see some creations. I am a new follower.
