We're Back!!

Yes, here we are back in the land of tea and biscuits. We arrived home tired, worn out, and an extra suitcase in tow. No we didn't kidnap Mickey Mouse, just an obscene amount of shopping.

I even managed to squeeze in a visit to a yarn store I'd found on the internet. Hopskotch in Celebration, Orlando. I was slightly disappointed with the this little boutique, it was primarily a clothes store with a couple of shelves of expensive yarn. Would I recomend it? Just for the visit to Celebration, definately.

I visited Michaels too and found they had ton loads of acrylic, yarn snob here sorry. I did come across some Lion Brand Thick and Quick wool, so I grabbed it and ran.

A wonderful package was here awaiting my return. Yes, my Knit Picks yarn. Its gorgeous, I've fallen in love all over again, especially with the "shine" (not picutred). Pictured is the "wool of the andes"... I see ANOTHER bag in the horizon.
Shanidy, thank you so much for shipping this out to me.

Knit Picks... I've almost gotcha babe

I've placed my order with Knit Picks thanks to the help of the lovely Shanidy of Purls and Curls . You'll get a preview once I receive it.

Progress report on Chicago (STILL unfinished): Back and both fronts are completed, and I'm onto the arms. Even though I know the pattern inside and out, it is still very slow progress. Is it boredom? Is it too much time on-line? Is it excitement of our Floriday?

Im off on Floriday on Thursday. Packing tomorrow with the bubela.

No pics, sorry.
