First off, work has been crazy busy. No time for knitting during my morning break or lunch. It is sad. I dream of the day when I can knit at work again. There is not much to show on the knitting front. I have been working a row here and there on my sock, and there is some secret birthday knitting that is taking place, but I can't show you that. Soon though.
Anyway, this weekend, Alex and I headed over to Chocolate Fest in Long Grove. You may think I wanted to go because of the chocolate, but the truth is, I had a coupon for 20% off non-sale yarn at I'd Rather Be Knitting (btw, if you go to their website, I think the coupon is good for the same thing during Strawberry Fest, which is in June some time...just saying). There was some purchasing for the Secret Pal, but certainly I cannot show you that. There was some purchases for me too, of course!!
Here we have some Mountain Colors Bearfoot in Marias Falls. I think it is a little darker than the picture shows. I am imagining something lacey with it.
Then we have some sale bin yarn:
It's Kathmandu Aran. I have never knit with it before, but it is soft and nice and pretty and cheap! I am imagining another shrug or some kind of bag with this.
Hey look! It's a pyramid of yarn!
Chocolate Fest was a lot of fun. We walked around, ate some chocolate fondue, people watched. Alex even walked around the knitting store like he almost cared about the yarn. I swear, it is just a matter of time before that boy starts knitting.
That's all. The rest of this week brings more working late, more American Idol, and more secret birthday knitting.
