It looks like my home is in the direct path of hurrican Frances which is now a category 4. My husband and I are packing up our two cats and getting the heck out of town! God only knows if we will even have anything to come home to. I am already packing my best yarn in a big bag that is coming with me! The rest is going to go in trash bags and I'll just hope for the best. This is going to be my last post until it all blows over. Wish us luck and if you pray send some prayers our way! They'll be very much appreciated! If you don't, then please cross all your fingers and toes!! Haha!

My image hosting is down yet again. However, I can't really complain since it is a free service. I am now considering moving shop and getting my own domain name. I have been doing some shopping and found webhosting for about 9 bucks a month. That isn't horrible when you consider that just some image hosting sites charge that much to store pictures. I will keep everyone posted on this decision, and I'll make sure that the transition is as painless as possible.
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.
