Good Grief

I spent two hours getting a flat tire fixed yesterday. Blah.

I spent the prior hour at the yarn store picking up a couple things. I decided to try two socks on one circular. The one I bought isn't long enough and I don't have another one the same size so I can't do two socks on two circs either. I will probably stop by some yarn store and pick up another pair (or two) on the way home tonight.

Borealis Yarns in St. Paul is my new favorite store. Abby, the owner, helped me change my tire. They also wound three 100 gram balls of yarn into two 50ish grams of yarn for the two socks experiment. Talk about above and beyond!

I bought some new stuff to send to my secret pal. I hope she likes it.

I am probably going to get the box together tonight. There are still a couple of things I am looking for but I'm not going to look too much longer - I have another month to send a package and perhaps I can find them by then.

Yucky. I hate flat tires. :)

Hey, in your yarn shoping sprees, can you check to see if any of the yarn stores you hit have Interweave Knits Spring 2004? I want that one, and I can't find it anywhere.

Why didn't I buy magaizines earlier in my knitting days?

Can't wait to visit on Monday! :D

I might have it - I'll look and see - you can borrow it - but I'll want it back.

Oh. I forgot to ask you. When I com on monday, can you teach me cables? I've got 2 patterns I want to do. And they involve cables.

More teaching hours for you! :D

Borealis is my favorite yarn shop! It's not surprising that Abby helped you - she's the sort of person who'd enjoy changing a tire.

How's the two socks on one circular coming?

I haven't had time to touch the socks all week. I hope to find some time Sunday.
