knitters, good.You guys are the best. In response to my blogiversary/anniversary/yarn give-away karma party, I have been getting some of the most fantastic e-mails from people with personal stories and reasons for generosity. Thanks to all of you, and to those of you who have sent other nice notes and comments this way. It's really, really great.
Anyone still interested in entering the draw should check out the details HERE. Enter by midnight this Friday to be entered in the draw for yummy yarn.
In other news, the yarn crawl continues. I went by Knit-O-Matic today to pick up some Opal Tiger Stripe sock yarn I had on hold. Also picked up a little gift yarn there...
Then down to my favourite, favourite shop of all: Lettuce Knit for knit night. I can't tell you how much I love this place. It's the happiest place in the world. Beautiful yarn, beautiful atmosphere. Always some new things to pet, some old standards to love, and a really good vibe, all the time. That's really important to me in a yarn store. Knitting is something I love to love, and when you walk in a store with a negative electricity in the air, it sucks all the fun out of it.
This has NEVER ever, not once happened to me at LK. There are lovely, lovely people who staff the store, helpful but not pushy, knowledgeable, friendly, understanding of one's yarn-binging tendencies. Megan does such a good job of making it a welcoming place everyone wants to be, wherever you're at with your knitting life. If you live within visiting distance and you've never been there, make sure you find time to stop by sometime. If not, well, you'll just have to trust me. (they do mail order, too)
I picked up a few things on Jen's behalf, and also accidentally bought another skein of Sea Wool sock yarn. I predict another trip to LK on Saturday once I have a yarn-karma winner or two. Plus I have to pace myself a little, because tomorrow Mom and I hit Needle Emporium, and Friday I will visit the new Main Street Yarns location with Renee, and there's bound to be a stop at Romni before I'm through!
Pics to come, when I'm blogging from my own computer again...
