Yarn and Plastic and Cats

Well, I'm not in Chicago. I didn't think I would be when I asked if anyone wanted to go. I mean really. I wouldn't take me up on something like that with 2 minutes notice. But - I had to try.
What I did do today was go to my LYS (Amazing Threads). I got a couple skeins of wool to start a pair of fair isle mittens, the latest Interweave Knits mag, and some of the Clover coil knitting needle holders. These little guys are great. They keep your double points from rolling around getting lost.

I also just got a box from KnitPicks. 2 hanks of merino wool fingerweight, 2 clearance merino fingerweight (memories - hurry only 2 color left at $2.99 a hank) and last but not least - a got the basic set of dye. Oh - looks like Chief is close by.
He spots the yarn but - wait - there's something else even better for him….
PLASTIC! There isn't a piece of plastic in this house that hasn't been inspected (chewed) by Chief.
I finished the Suri Dreams scarf but the butt-cheap batteries I bought pooped out and I have no more umph in my camera. The picture will have to wait.
Bert now begging for attention so - it's off to rub a tummy and scritch and ear.

Yea - we did the cabin this weekend and it was lovely. So, no Chicago. Can't wait to hear about it.

Ooh! I am so jealous over the Memories from Knit Picks! I promised myself no new yarn until mid-September, and I've been firm for 2 and a half months! Not that I need new yarn, but CLEARANCE....!!!!
