gotta have it

must haves

yarn and shadow
sometimes a girl just needs a little instant gratification. retail therapy. whatever you want to call it. today at lunchtime i ran out, drove all over hell and half of georgia, and came back with these: crazy aunt purl's drunk divorced and covered in cat hair, which i cannot WAIT to read (LOVE crazy aunt purl--hey girl!), and a beautiful little natural ball of kidsilk haze, with which i will, in my copious free time, knit a branching out scarf as a gift for my lovely work friend janie, who is both awesome and a really tremendous help to me. why i had to have these things TODAY, i am not sure, but i did. and now i have them. so yay! besides, who can argue with the benefits of a yarn store visit at lunchtime. that's just good stuff right there.

ps--that second picture is just there because i like it--love the sunlight this time of day.

what a coincedence! Picked up the same book last night at knitting group (we meet at a Barnes and Noble in Manchester, NH) - to take on a knitting retreat in November.

Hey - have you checked out Good Reads yet? It's like Ravelry for readers. There is a link to it on my blog if you want to check it out.

Picked it up at Borders on this past weekend and can't put it down. Even had to e-mail the author to tell her how much I'm loving it.
