Seriously! I'm going to Paris in April for the first time and I have already checked to see where the yarn shops are!

DH thinks I'm certifiable. Most normal people head to the Louvre.

You know you are a Knitter when you have an appointment and you hope they are running late. So while you are waiting on them you can knit.

I did that not long ago! I was gazing at a beautiful pink sweater in Janie & Jack and then I realized that it was a simple garter & cable design.

I put it back!

We are going to Gulf Shores this summer and I'm already surfing the net for yarn shops in, out and around the area. I home sick with the flu so today I rolled money from the extra change jar--I have $68.00 to spend on yarn, needles, notions, etc. I have plenty of seashells--I need my yarn fix

I took my daughter shopping for a friend's birthday gift today. We went to a small gift shop...you know the kind...unique gifts.

I, of course, gravitated to the purses. I had to call her over to one I found. I explained which side was purled and which side was knit.

Yeah, yeah, Mom...WHATEVER...

Hubby is going to Paris! I want him to get me some yarn, but I need to find some stores there.
