Ok...Those Words? Nom.Nom.Nom.Nom....

Remember I told you I wanted someone to make me eat my words in the event I broke my no more yarn buying pledge? (Those words might taste like cardboard, but that's okay.)

I stopped by Knitter's Knook, one last time tonight.
I couldn't help it. The final week: 65% off.

Two skeins of Baby Alpaca Lace in navy. Two balls of sock yarn. A ball of Mango Moon mohair. And a size 0 Addi Turbo (16-inch) - I'd have gotten two but she only had one. And I wanted to take more, but I did reign myself in (ok, just a little).

Becky and I chatted for an hour. The store closes for good on Friday evening.

I didn't cry. But I surely felt like it. I hope she didn't after I left. She's got a cold, crying would make her feel worse.

Becky? Every best wish I can think of, I'm sending your way, love. Thank you. I'll miss you. And see you very soon, I know. Stay safe in your travels. Godspeed.

It seems to me that in this situation you have a special purchase dispensation.

I took my knitting to Bible study last night. The Mavis bag was much admired, and one lady took your address for Christmas ordering. Fingers crossed!

a) It's Becky and b) It's 65% off. If ever there was a time to shop like mad (which I did), it's here and now.

I share your sentiments regarding Becky's departure. Knitting just won't be the same.

I am not convinced that that was a word-eating scenario. That was a supportive thing to do for a friend whom you're going to miss. Very different.

65% off? What are you, made of stone?

Those words should taste like chocolate.

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
