Yarn Sale

It kills  me it just kills me! You have to work to be able to buy yarn, but you don't have time to buy the yarn cause you have to work! I went to the "crack of dawn wear your jammies" yarn sale, but I didn't buy very much. The place was packed, and the line was long and slow moving. I had very limited shopping time because I had to make sure I got through the line in time to make it to work. I still had a great time, and I got my name entered in a raffle to win a $100 gift certificate. I think that if I had won I would have heard from them by now though. So what did I buy? I bought two balls of Sockotta which is 45% cotton, 40% Superwash Wool, and 15% Nylon. The colors are beautiful! One ball is shades of brown and cream and the other is shades of blue and white. I also got the new Interweave Knits Crochet Issue. I am really happy with the patterns in this magazine (more on that later). I wish that I could have bought more. In fact I almost called in sick so I could shop! I just grabbed the prettiest sock yarn I could find. I figure you can never go wrong with sock yarn! My grand total was about 20 bucks. You can't beat that! I'm sure that she'll have another sale. Next time I'll go the day before to decide what I want to jump on, so I won't have to worry about time.
