Question: What would make a couple want to make out at a LYS?
A: "Sure, honey, I'll buy that $100 bag of cashmere for you, it's on sale!
B: "See these books over here? I'll buy you one of each title!"
C: "I can't wait for you to finish your knitted _________ (insert name of your choice of undergarment here)."
D: It was an entry into the Extreme Knitter contest, although there wasn't any knitting going on.
Maybe I just don't get it. Maybe I'm getting old. Maybe it's because I'm married that I find yarn store PDA a little bizarre. This was not a little peck on the cheek, it was a prolonged, passionate kiss.
Saturday was a Knitty meetup. Elizabeth already covered many of the details here
. We met at a LYS/coffeeshop, which was buzzing with activity. I spotted a Wavy,
so the owner and I chatted a bit-I figured she was there for the meetup, but she was meeting someone else. She spotted my sock and exclaimed, "Is that a Jaywalker?" Sure was. She pulled her very own Jaywalker out of her bag. I guess we have similar taste in patterns!
I managed to work a quarter round of my Jaywalker before I lost a stitch. Back in the bag it went. Instead, I worked on a scarf with some "problem yarn" Terby
destashed to me the last time I saw her. I messed around with it a bit in the morning and decided that it looked pretty good combined with some leftover Lamb's Pride. I managed to screw up the scarf a few times, too. Of course I am going to run out of the Lamb's Pride and have no idea if I can get any more of that color. That was not very smart of me.... I'm tempted to rip it out and start over with a full skein. So the knitting wasn't so great on Saturday. Too many distractions.
My very awesome Holiday SP, Kathy, drove an hour and a half to the meetup. It was great to meet her! She brought me my final package full of wonderful goodies: a skein of Cash Iroha for armwarmers (right now my fingers are freezing, gotta get working on those), 3 skeins of Silk Garden (leftover from the GORGEOUS sweater she was wearing), 2 more balls of the extremely thin mohair she sent in my first package, chocolate, and a nice card! I'll post a picture sometime later this week. Not everyone is so lucky to get a SP package hand delivered!
My Not Cashmere Sweater is coming along...pics to come.
