Look at what I bought this weekend!

Last Saturday I went to Starbucks with my knitting gals. Unfortunately, I somehow, with some help from the wind, managed to spill my IZZE Sparkling Blackberry drink on our table, the ground, IN my purse, all over the outside of my knitting bag, on my pants and sandals, and worst of all.... on Erin. I felt like such an idiot! I decided to blame it on my least favorite person, George Bush. Erin, her mom, and I took a drive over to our LYS and look what I bought!!

4 Skeins of Rowan Kid Classic! Colors are #827, 835, 845, and 847. I am going to knit myself a Dr. Who Scarf. Isn't this exciting?! Purple is my favorite color, the red matched my shoes and my skiing gear (that I still need to buy), the orange matches my shoes AND my kneelength jacket, and the sage is just perrrrrty. And, all of these skeins were 20% off. YAY!

10 skeins of Rowan dk tweed in color #852 Seal. This eventually will make me a luscious sweater. All of this yarn only cost me $50! Seeing as how it's normally $10 PER skein, I got it all for 1/2 price! That's HALF PRICE!!!

Last but not least, I got these 6 balls of GGH Gala. I bought them because of the color and the slight shine to it. Little did I know that regular price was $11 per ball. I got ALL 6 for..... SIX DOLLARS! What a steal! This will make a heavenly scarf.

Needless to say, I have a few things to make. Now I just need to find more time.... Thanks for the fun day Erin!

I forgot all about the fizzy spillage! I didn't even mention it on my blog! Ha! Obviously I didn't care too much about that!

Oh and hey, look at you go with posting those pictures! Lookin' good. You're definitely right about needing to find some more time to knit all your lovely new yarn!
