Last week I alluded to the trip Trish and I took to the Naked Sheep, which is closing and having a huge sale to move out all its remaining inventory by the end of the month.
Now, we all know that I do not need more yarn, and furthermore that physiotherapy bills are forcing me to be far more fiscally conservative than I would like. But I loved the Naked Sheep and never mind that I wanted a few last souvenirs of my shopping time there, I wanted to do my part to help clear out that store.
And I was pretty good, considering.
I desperately needed more Addi needles in sizes I either don't have covered or do have covered but only in lace points, which I just find really really hurty on the fingertips such that I use them only when I must have that sharp tip. There were lots left, so I was able to get these:
I also got this how-to-spin DVD which is not the one Helena recommended I get my hands on but looks delightful all the same:
Somehow a virus got around my antivirus protection and invaded my e-mail files about ten minutes ago or I would be able to tell you which DVD she did recommend. I am trying not to panic about the virus or the fact that I foolishly haven't backed up my files in a Really Long Time and am just trusting to the powers of Norton Internet Security and failing that, my genius brother, la la la la deep breathing.
And finally - and this is something I may be squishing for reassurance purposes later on today - I bought a big hunk of yarn:
It's perfect for a hat - look, it even matches my scarf! And I don't have to tell you what else it matches.
