OMG! I never thought of moths getting my yarn! What kind of bags are they? regular ziplock bags? Freezer bags?
I thought it might be a bad sign that I was SO excited about the yarn sale. I talked about it for days beforehand. I had a plan to get there at 9am, upon opening. I couldn't sleep the night before I was so excited.
Then I got nervous and thought I'd maybe look like some kind of hopeless obsessive if at 9am the shop owners found me there with my nose pressed against the glass. So I forcibly restrained myself and got there at 9:30am and the place was packed! Standing room only! I wondered afterwards if there was a line outside before they even opened.
AND I went to the sale three times. The 2nd time was because it wasn't till I was almost done the first time that I realized the pattern books were on sale too...and I had run out of time to look because I had an appt to go to. So I paid for what I had and said I'd be back.
I went back the 2nd time to look at the books though didn't find another one I wanted....but the 3rd time I went back (and this time made a special trip, from home, the 2nd time I at least was still out and near the store!) simply because I was having obsessive thoughts that maybe in my probably 90 mins spent in the store, I had somehow missed some special yarn that I very urgently needed.
And since I've been google searching online to find other yarn shops with sales on. I was up till 1am last night trying to find a good deal on Colinette Jitterbug because there is a wrap I want to knit from it.
Before I had this little ottoman that opened up, for my knitting stuff. I have this morning commandeered a whole seating bench as well. It's not full yet of course but....I have plans.
I have a friend coming over today, I'm going to show her my stash. I doubt she will understand. She knits too but just a bit.
I even took pictures of the new yarn with my iPhone and emailed it to another friend who doesn't knit but she says she loves yarn and has sometimes been tempted to buy it just because it's so beautiful.
I have an urge to get her a "how to knit" book now, I feel confident there is an inner knitter in her, waiting to be released.
