String Theory and I had to make an emergency Knitch run today. I swear, that place is... um. Words are failing me. Like Candyland and Christmas morning all wrapped into one. My bank account weeps. 2008's New Year's Resolution will have to be a yarn diet for sure.
But oh, the goodies! Going to a yarn store is always better with a friend because then you have someone to show the pretties to. I'm thinking I may seriously take up lace in the new year because the lace weights are all so beautiful... Malabrigo's new lace-weight is so soft and pretty.
I got some Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran in teal to make my brother's Christmas present -- Croshay Design's Flyflap Cap, since he was complaining about cold ears on the phone. I don't think he's seen Firefly or else I'd make him a Jayne hat.
It was nice seeing some of the regulars, and meeting Kim the owner's adorable Italian greyhounds. Nell from my knitting group rang me up, and I was so pleasantly surprised when she started telling her co-worker about More Crocheted Aran Sweaters and how gorgeous the sweaters were and how amazing it was that they were crocheted. Now I know she wasn't just being polite!
