I am a creature of habit. I usually take the same way to and from work. To and from the store, etc.

Well, today the world was so beautiful outside I decided to take a detour. I saw garage sale sign... and well the car just unexpectedly stopped. (previous owner must have programmed that into it).

I looked around.. and saw some books.. then... THEN!!!!!! yarn... knitting books... YES YES YES.

I made a haul. I bought 6 books... none of which I had ever seen but one.. and a bunch of really nice wool blend yarns!.

I love to knit. I love to read.. So knitting books are almost as good as chocolate!

I spent... ready for this... $12.00 for all of it. They even threw in the other 4 books I wasn't going to buy.. due to my buying all the others. So... naturally I had to go ahead and buy the rest of the yarn..

10 books... about 20 skeins(balls also) of yarn for $15.00.

The yarn is awesome.. not one acryllic one in the bunch!!!!!!!!!

This is soo awesome.. ok.. I've overused that word..

That's great. I've looked at a couple of yard sales here and there but so far nothing knitting related at all.
