soooo, first my old camera broke.
thennnnn, we tried to fix it.
neexxxt, I spent hours and hours researching a replacement.
finnnnally, I found one:
Time to read the manual while the battery is charging,
and tomorrow maybe I can take some good photos of FO’s.
I have about ten thousand plans for scarves, scarf kits, balls of yarn earmarked for scarves, lace scarf plans, warm scarf ideas, etc. Now I learn that neither my son, husband, sister, neice or nephew wear scarves!!
How do they keep their necks warm?
Good thing my daughter loves scarves . . . and I do too!
Wow, what a day!
My husband and I sayed up ALL NIGHT in order to hit the first sales at 4:00 a.m.!
We planned our strategy and it really paid off.
I went to J.C. Penny’s and scored a crockpot and faux-leather handbag
while hubby was at Sears getting a new flat screen TV
(the old one is six months old, after all!)
oh, and new tool sets!
On to Belks and Macy’s for more bargains galore!
Target and WalMart!
Then on the way home, a quick stop at Dick’s Sporting Goods,
for some, you know, sporting good stuff.
Time for breakfast!
P.S. Anyone who believes a single word of this
doesn’t know me or my husband very well.
Regime Change – Yes.We.Did!
My boss did not get re-elected but, luckily, one of
the incoming judges hired me. Yay!
November 7 – 20:
Bellingham, Washington, helping Nora with stuff.
Coming soon to a blog near you, a post about Bellingham!
November 21 – 26:
catching up on work, etc., etc.
* burp *
Thanksgiving at my sister’s house.
November 28 – today that is.
Job interviews today and Monday . . .
Well, that was fun! I enjoyed culling yarn that, realistically,
I have no immediate plans for.
I liked seeing Michelle take it under her wing.
My whole relationship with my yarn has improved.
I still have three nice-sized baskets full of yarn,
but it’s all yarn I like, and I have ideas for all of it.
This was so much fun that I think I’ll go through
knitting books and magazines, maybe clothes that
don’t fit anymore – who knows!
My new project is a scarf for my son’s birthday next week,
made from this gorgeous stuff:
Pattern comes from Jane Ellison’s Queensland Collection,
a book of mens’ patterns –
although I might make the cabled vest for myself!
The yarn is free, but if I have to mail it,
you’ll need to pay the shipping.
It’s still a great deal!
