There are some more cable hats in the stable along with another 3 strand headband. I have a cranberry cable hat on the needles downstairs and a new hat that doesn’t yet have a name on the upstairs needles.
I gave some thought to trying to throw myself a pity party because things are not moving as fast I as I would like them to now that I’ve decided I wanted things to move fast. But I’ve abandoned that idea to instead choose to be more positively focused. Besides, today is a free day and I can eat whatever I want. Depression would just take away from the joy of that.
Today will be spent prepping for tomorrow’s trip. I and three others will be making our way to WI. I have in mind that I can come back with no yarn purchase or the idea that the entire back of the van will be filled and there’s a chance someone will need to find an alternate way back to Illinois.
There is something that could curtail that last possibility and it’s that Hobby Lobby is filling their website with new yarns and Miss Vicki said their shelves were stocked again with solid colors though the variegated colors were scarce. Yes, I was prepared to throw them over but second chances have been known to happen. But I am not naive. I am not putting all my knitting eggs in that basket anymore.
The main thing that works in favor of coming back with a yarn store in my van is that the prices on the website are the prices in the store. So there are some opportunities to be set up right going into the crazy season. The truth is I don’t think I am coming back with much more than some great memories and a smile. It’s jus the thought of being able to come back with fiber is wonderful. But I still am in stash bust not stash build mode and the only concern I have is finding the big balls so I can make the hooded scarf (wait until you see the photo – pretty cute!) Now, if I can find that on this trip then that will be the best icing on the cake.
It’s Friday! There’s rain in the forecast but try and enjoy yourselves wherever you are! Wish us a safe and happy trip as well. Tell you all about it on Sunday.
