What A Nice Way To Spend A Tuesday Evening

Tonight was the first evening that The Black Sheep was open until 7 p.m. So of course I had to go up there. I was the only customer (unfortunate for The Black Sheep, perhaps, but lucky for me...I had a lovely visit with Tracy and Nancy), but it's only the first night. I hope this is a successful development for the shop. It would be handy to have an evening escape every once and a while.

Did I buy anything, you ask? Ha! Stupid question.

This is Lorna Lace's Sport in the...um....the Irving Park colorway. I'm going to have Kaethe take a look at this picture and tell me if she thinks these would be nice socks. Yoo hoo, Kaethe...you there?

I also got two skeins of a pretty variegated yarn...Wisdom something or other? I'm going to do some fishies for Red Dog Knits. Those boys need their birthday blankie. They look like fun little car knits.

The evening ended with a little bit of a bummer as there was an awful looking accident I had to work my way past on the way home.

I'm actually drooling. That's some of the most beautiful yarn ever! Without DNA, I don't think it's possible to be more me.

Admit it: knitting is just an excuse to play with pretty string, isn't it? On the Internet, no one knows you're really a cat.

Ha! I'm sure that's why so many people use cat pictures for their avatars.
