Thur. Feb. 19th: I went to Gauge knits today. I saw on their website that they have a Third Thursday Open Knitting group from 4-6pm. There were 3 other ladies and one of the store owners that was there when I went there the first time. One of the ladies was making a Barbie poncho, one was making a double sided kitty scarf that was going to say "YUMMY" before the letters are reversable and two seaters were being made. I couldn't help myself from buying a skein of "Rio de la Plata" 100% merino wool in a mulicolor ply of cappuccion, iguana, sudan brown, sparking grape, sky blue and red orange when I was leaving.
Fri. Feb. 20th: Visited bluebonnet yarn shoppe today. They had mostly mixed synthetic yarn. The store was pretty laid back, some of it had fallen on the blue carpet; this seemed to be a norm. Not my favorite selection of yarn and I noticed the same books were more expinsive than other stores. In the end I found some past issues of vogue knitting winter 07/08 and fall 08 that I got and a skein of "Elsebeth Lavold" silky tweed a 40% silk, 30% cotton, 20% merino extra fine, 10% viscose in 17 green dye lot 7
