More yarn?

Like I needed more yarn in my stash! But how could someone resist a road trip with my sister to western Mass. to WEBS annual after Christmas, 25% off sale. We headed out about 9:45 am - it was really cold and a some snow flurries. I almost got nabbed speeding, but the officer was nice and let me go with just a warning. I guess a car of middle aged woman on a shopping trip isn't a big threat so he let me go with a warning. I put the cruise control on after that!

We got to WEBs about 11:45am and the flurries had just started, but the parking lot was pretty full already. First we head to the bargain room, I grabbed 2 bags of 10 balls each of Jo Sharp Cotton Wool blend it a lovely dark blue. Then I found some lovely Jo Sharp wool in black - this will be great for the Shadow or Illusion knitting that I want to do. My sister got me a book for Christmas and it has a beautiful jacket in there I would love to make. Toss that into my basket. Now I realize that I need a shopping cart, this little basket is already filled and I haven't even gone into the main store or into the back room yet!

Find a shopping cart and dump it all in. I then find some beautiful merino wool that is so soft, and natural so I grab that to do some more hand dying with my sister! Now I'm on a roll. I found some lovely hand dyed sock yarn so I need a few skeins for socks. Then some lovely soft yarn, for Dena's chemo caps. Oh and that absolutely positively expensive specialty yarn for a scarf for me. Way too much, even at 25% off. Then another bag of a beautiful mohair that will make a couple of gorgeous shawls. Not too bad. Well I spent way too much but I got lots of lovely yarns to add to my already too big stash.

By the time we got out of there - it was after 2pm and the snow was flying. So we headed home and got back just as the roads started getting slippery. So those flurries have now turned into a projection of 6 to 8 inches of snow. I guess I know what I'm going to be doing. Now what should I start on? Too many choices!

It can snow for the rest of the winter. I just put some chicken and veggies in the crockpot, some nice music is playing. I could sit her and knit for the rest of the winter.
