Welcome 2009

So today started off early as both DH and I got up and got going to head out to The Fold for the annual sale.  Dawn and I wanted to be first one’s in and hurry up to get our purchases done and get out.  If you haven’t been there for the sale it’s total madness.   Since last year my car got hit in the parking lot at this sale, DH drove us and waited in the car for us.  This way too we could talk and look at books we got for the holidays and stuff.

Since we got there early we got a primo spot to park and were the first one’s in the door.  Even though I had a list, calculator and had an eye of what I was looking for – I still managed to get a bit confounded.  There are just entirely too many choices in that store.  I did manage to get bearings and get some lovely stuff.

First some Gypsy Girl Adrianna I had been coveting… but talked myself out of last time I saw it…

Then some lovely merino/silk – 8 ounces of luscious goodness…

Totally gorgeous and everyone kept asking me where I got it.  Since it was in a huge maybe 2 or 3 pound bag,  I re-assured everyone there would be plenty left.  It just struck me when I posted a picture this would make a totally gorgeous shawl.

Then I picked up a bag for my Lendrum spinning wheel.

I had been coveting one of these for a while.  I would take it more places if it had a decent bag.  I already have some lovely cozies for the heads that my Mom made.  I think this may have been last years model as it was a little less then all the other denim ones, but I don’t mind.  The best part – all my purchases were 30% off.

I’m off to knit and think about my goals for 2009.  I don’t like resolutions, but I do like goals.  Have a good one everyone!

  • Nice loot! The pink roving is gorgeous. I may need to embroider a little patch or something for my bag to make it more easily identifiable. I’m heading to the fabric store today to find something for cozies like your mom did.
