Last night I was at a local knit night at another LYS. I used to avoid this one as pretentious and stuffy, too precious and expensive, and then in a stroke of marketing genious, this upber-white, waspy store hired the only black woman working in a PDX LYS. Thank DOG for Terrisa (that is the correct spelling....it's a Quaker spelling, I am told). Now the store rings with laughter and humour, and a bit more champagne during the knit nights. HOWEVER....damn yarn sale. After last weekend's unexpected yarn adventure, I promised myself that I would buy NO MORE. That vow lasted a whopping 5 days: Tahki Donegal tweed at 30% off. How could I possibly resist? I was good boy, though....I only bought $40 worth. (IT'S A MIRACLE!) 2/16/07....15 hats knit thus far... I wish I had thought to photograph them all before I sent them away. Love to you all from misty Portland.
