I tried really hard. Really, I did. I went for seven or eight weeks, ignoring all the posts about it — The Black Sheep Knittery sale. I encouraged other people to go and buy up all of the stuff, so there would be nothing left. I seriously thought to myself, “I can resist this one. Really. I am strong. I am woman. I am invincible. Hear me roar (or whatever).”
Then Annette asked if I wanted to go.
“Ummm, I’m trying to be good here.”
Annette said she would pick me up at my house, and bring me back home in time to pick up the Sweeties from school.
She had me there. She can be very convincing, that Annette. We planned to go on Monday.
At Madgik’s on Saturday, when Ellen, MJ, Jillian and Teresa talked about the even-more loot they got on their Saturday visits at BSK, I was hoping they cleared out the store. But I’m happy to say they didn’t.
This is what I got today.
Lana Grossa Pashmina (cashmere!) in spring green, Katie Ingenua (mohair) in baby pink for a ballet shrug for Sweetie Girl, Debbie Bliss Merino Chunky in deep violet, and Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk in light blue. No ideas yet for what, but I’m sure I’ll find some inspiration.
Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Raging Purple, Cherry Moon and Lime Light for the Dropped Stitch Lace Tank from Fitted Knits. The green is for me. I’m hoping to convince my nieces to knit ones for themselves this summer.
Classic Elite Provence in lavender and a couple of Bryspun circulars for some lace knitting in the near future.
Tilli Thomas Salt & Pepper in natural w/chilli and the Holiday Knits book. This will sit in a nice tucked-away corner until Christmas time when it will be gifted to a friend.
