Oh that's totally fine! She has Debbie Bliss!

I got my Malabrigo fix taken care of (I think *gulp* ) but I could definitely use a few skeins of Debbie Bliss. Someone remind me that I want sock yarn! I get a little crazed in yarn stores....

I'll do my best, but I'll probably get sidetracked myself!

My money seems to just jump out of my purse when I go to a yarn store, saying, "Spend me! Spend me!"

Yay! I just want to jump and shout!

But, as you all know.....I NEED TO GO TO SLEEP!!!
:?

I have my camera ready, with two sets of batteries for back-up. My memory card allows me to take more than 200 photos, so I think we're in business. I even have my tripod so I can turn on the timer and take some group photos!

I'll bring some 40% off coupons for Hobby Lobby just in case we feel like "slumming" after our Cottage Yarn visit.

I'm also bringing some knitting magazines I'm no longer using. You ladies can fight over them tomorrow. I might even bring some yarn as well! (I have WAY more than I will ever use in my craft room.)

Zippadee doo dah!!!

Melissa, you are SO FUNNY! Poor thing, you're ready for your yarn fix!

I guess I'm just as bad. I CAN'T SLEEP!!! Well, I take that back....I DID sleep from 11:30 until 4:30. But, Marvin woke me up to say goodbye early this morning, and then I couldn't get back to sleep. I kept imagining meeting everyone and having fun talking and knitting with you all. So, I just gave up and got out of bed to see if anyone left any messages.

I might have to sit and knit for a while to help me calm down. Nothing like the feel of yarn and needles in my hands to help me slow down. If I can't knit, then I'll spin some yarn....or look at my knitting books and dream of my next project.

I'll probably lie down again at about 7:00. That will give me over two hours more of sleep. I'll be fine.

I was trying to figure out what I will wear for today, and really wanted to wear something I have knit myself. But, I have given away almost everything I've ever made! I might bring my teal shawl. I know ONE thing I can wear - my striped socks!!

Now, I'm looking online to see if Michaels or AC Moore has anything on sale this weekend. We'll be passing Michaels, Hobby Lobby and AC Moore on the way to and from Cottage Yarn. I guess you'd have to call that road "Yarn Alley".

We'll just have to see how our time goes. There is another yarn shop in Matthews also. You know....the one that is sometimes rude to me. Maybe we'll go there and egg the place.
