I did pick up a couple of lovely things.
I actually planned to buy this. I saw these really interesting socks, that require a good solid striping sock yarn to show off the magic. The Geek Socks from Knitty. All the magic happens at the colour change. In my huge stash of yarn, there is only 1 skein of sock yarn that is definitively striping. How did I not know this before? And it isn't even a really nice ball. There are many that are close but there is a lot of faux isle going on too and that would defeat the interesting pattern of the Geek socks. So this was a good planned for buy.
And you know how it is. Yarn stores be dangerous places. I saw this ball of yarn, one lone ball,
Then there was the incident by the door.
I saw this brilliant golden yellow the moment I walked into the store, and turned around a saw a brilliant Kureopatra with the same rich vibrant shade on the outside of the ball. How could I leave these behind? The golden yellow is for my little Cassie, a nice shortie sweater, nice little cables or lace maybe. I saw something similar in Twist of Yarn in Vernon and just fell so in love with it. And the Kureopatra? I don't know what I will do with it, but I needed it.
That was it for me, till I was walking towards the counter and this fell into my basket.
We went off to lunch at the Stony Plain Multicultural Heritage Centre's Homesteader's Kitchen. I highly recommend stopping there for good eats. I am looking forward to going back for the soup. I wonder if they sell it by the pail? Like offsale in the old days? Sigh. It was good.
I was faced with so many choices to knit when I got home and I didn't do any of them. Well, almost none, anyway. There was the lingering need to spin. Who knows where that will take me?
Sadly, still no 3 mm 16 inch needle. I can knit as is, it is just harder to face doing.
