Have You Seen My Self Control?

Apparently it has left the building.

As if my little trip to the KW fair wasn’t enough, I seem to have caused a little incident at the Purl on Sunday. I have only now recovered enough to talk about it.

In my defense, I was only trying to get a better look at what was at the bottom of the Malabrigo Silky sale bin. I tipped it over on an empty chair and what followed next is a bit of a blur. It was like shark feeding time at the zoo. Women diving in, yarn flying through the air, and I swear I heard someone say that they would sell their soul for a certain colour (it might have been me, but I’m suffering from yarnesia due to the yarnalanche).

Somehow when I came up for air, three skeins of each of these lovelies were in a death-grip in my hands. I have no idea what I’m going to make, but they look like they belong together so I had to give them a good home. (self sacrificing aren’t I?)

The happy couple:

Nocturnal 472

London Sky 418

I have also been busy on my Spinning a Sweater project.

I’ll be doing a lot of this on Sunday’s at the Purl (at least while the
weather holds – I don’t take my wheel out in cruddy weather). I’ll need
all the support I can get, so if you see me spinning away with a glassy
stare, just feed me more caffeine.

PS – 186 yards down, 2000 to go

  1. Hey Sherri;

    I like your version of events… it is much more detailed than the other versions I have heard, and helped me to visualize the yarnalanche that I so dearly missed!

  2. Too bad I missed that yarnalance.

    I am sure I would have been rescuing you to no avail.

    Spin away, I am waiting for to knit some, because your swatch looked truly yummy.

    Coffee? Tims? Black?

    If I show up on Sunday, I’ll bring some coffee. What time are you going to be at PP, if it’s not raining?

  3. I missed the yarnalanche? 🙁 The colors are yummy!!!

    At least I can console myself with a few cups of Timmy’s. 🙂
