As I patiently waited in line just to get in the door, I found myself thinking how this excitement paralleled that of Missoni for Target. Okay, maybe not that much excitement, but still far more than I had anticipated.
As I inched closer to the door I was given a number 58 (door prizes for the first 60, I just barely made it). In addition to the bustling excitement, the best part for me was seeing so many familiar faces from my Tuesday night group. I told them I was there to start building my stash (since they like to tease me for my ability to resist buying yarn unless I am about to start a new project - however, I must admit that they are rubbing off on me).
Since this event was held in honor of the Rowan partnership, I decided to treat myself to some lovely lace yarn. This deep purple was the exact color that I had in mind for a vintage pattern (that I have yet to buy). The lighter purple-grey may be used for some stockings.

Once at checkout I was completely surprised to receive the Rowan Knit & Crochet Magazine #49. They were giving this away just for making a purchase! I love my yarn shop.
This is a gem filled with lots of beautiful images for knitting inspiration. I am now looking more forward to football season than ever. Having this gorgeous yarn on my lap and these romantic images before me - I may not even notice that ESPN is on all day at my house! (Yes, my wonderful hubby loves football - college and pro, so we watch a lot of football here).
|I love how the models have a simplistic look to them, and the light airy knits |
look so wonderful. Even the backdrops are gorgeous.
I just wanted to share my happy day with you. Hope it inspired you to create something beautiful.
Live the moment, love life!
