I got nothing

Well, almost nothing at the NH Sheep and Wool this past Saturday. I went there with the idea that I wouldn't buy any yarn unless it had a purpose. I was looking specifically for some lace weight for the Myrtle Leaf shawl and some non-girly sock yarn for the husband. I did manage to find a skein of sock yarn that I liked in greens, yellow, and a salmon pink (not girly), but they had only one. I did find a matching skein of just greens and had the idea that I could do heels and toes in the semi-solid, but the husband vetoed that one like I suspected he would.

I also got a new felted slipper pattern and some yarn to make a pair. I love felting.

The rest of the day was spent fondling yarn, laughing with friends, looking at cute animals, and just enjoying a sunny Saturday outside.

On Sunday my wonderful children took me out to lunch and we bought a new swing set for the kids. We've been shopping for one for a while. I can't wait til it's delivered!

Zoe is done, she's going through the second cycle now. I'm crossing my fingers she doesn't over felt.

That swingset should be so much fun!!! They're going to love it!

Dying to see Zoe and I hope you can bring it tonight to knitting.

Yes, your loot from Saturday was disgraceful....simply disgraceful....

That one alpaca looks like he's doing a giraffe imitation. They are the cutest animals!

Well, sounds like you get a new pair of socks now :)
