Saturday was clear at 7:00 am, so by about 7:45 we were on the way to Oma & Opa's. Of course the weather got super nasty just over halfway there, but i wasn't turning back - or slowing down. We were there before 9:30 - plenty of time for coffee and fun. The gurlz were so happy they immediately took out the toys and played and played and played.
I finished big gurl's scarf - pics as soon as that cord shows up - and plugged away at sis's afghan. I have a plan of sorts at this point, so that is good.
We didn't make it to the wool shoppe as we couldn't find any information on it - the leaflet Mom got last summer is somewhere in my house and I wasn't here. Googled and ravelried it, but to no avail. We just hung out and last night we watched Juno - what a beautiful movie - just fabulous everything in it. Wow.
This morning, my Mom suddenly says, I don't know if this is too basic for you, but I picked this up at the Sally Ann in Ingersoll and well, I'm not sure... My cries of joy cut her off completely and I danced around the room and hugged her and then danced and cheered some more.
Why, you ask - because she handed me this book. Not this edition, but one of the older editions, however I was so happy. Some sadness that the BSJ was not in it, but that quickly evaporated as I poured over the pages. Let's just say that any of EZ's books are now on my Mom's search list - and well, she is going to buy any decent looking knitting book she finds from now on.
Thank you Mom!!!
funny thing she said - I'm thinking of trying it, could you get me some stuff to start?
Hello - don't spend a dime Mom - needles, yarn, books and everything in between is here.
And she has suggested we take a tent and drive around to the different wool farms/shoppes in Ontario. How cool is that??
