Finally got a GC to a LYS !!
My MIL always gets me a gift card to a clothing store for Christmas and I always end up using it to buy my husband clothes b/c there are so few stores that I can shop at to get tall stuff that fits well. Anyway, I literally left a note on the fridge for the hubby this year that said "I need a gift card to LYS not a gift card to buy you clothes" and WOOOHOOO I got a very generous gift card to my new LYS from my MIL !!!! Guilt free yarn shopping !! Now if I can just get hubby home from work to hang out with our son so I can go guilt-free yarn shopping alone...now that would be heaven

I don't think I've ever gotten a GS for a yarn store or site. What are they thinking!?

Enjoy!

Yay! That's awesome that he got the message and passed it on.

I got a $25 one from my youngest to Knitpicks this year.

YES!....now I do hope you get to go alone; in fact, you really MUST go to a LYS alone, not with hubby or child along. Otherwise, how can you truly enjoy the paradisical bliss of it all?

Surely you could try for a sitter.

Jan - that's awesome you got knitting money too !
Woodi - my son is only 18months and I have yet to be brave enough to leave him with a sitter other than my mom
The GC is a triple WOOHOO b/c I left my full-time job when my son was born and as a result of that my yarn budget dried up and disappeared. and....nobody (other than hubby) knows yet, but I am pregnant again so this means I can make the new baby a blanket just like I made my son !!
