There was this yarn sale

I have a hard enough time resisting yarn when it's not on sale. But let me hear about a sale and I'm done for. Black Sheep Knittery is having a 50% off sale through the end of March.

The last time I went to Black Sheep Knittery it took an hour and a half to get there. We used rapid transit (an oxymoron if ever there was one). This time we drove. It took twenty three minutes and we didn't have to walk three blocks after we got there. I went with L&H (of L&H fame). L's car knows to the way to every yarn shop in Southern California. She can get there blindfolded. We stayed for maybe an hour and came away with so many treasures. I'd go back except I pretty much emptied the check book. I could really use one more hank of that Alchemy Silken Straw though. Even at half price it's pricey.

There's another yarn sale next month at Unraveled. but I don't think I'll be going to that one. I just managed to get everything put away, after I added some more storage cubes, and now I have the stuff I just bought at Black Sheep. And it's unrealistic to think I could ever knit everything I have in my stash, even if I only use the good stuff. But that's never stopped me.

You need an intervention. As punishement, i think you should send half of your purchases to me! LOL!

Wow! What a sale! None of the LYS in this area ever have a sale like that! We thought we were lucky to find a bag of Silky Wool for $45.

Good shopping, Larry. Looks like you had a great time!

In honor of you I went to Target and bought two new storage cubes and spent the rest of the day organizing my patterns....

Now I have to get down to knitting.

Wow - the yarn looks great. I need a pile like that myself, especially that silky wool. I just bought some of Knitpick's Gloss which is silk and wool but I haven't tried it out yet.
