Playdates and Sidewalk Sales

Okay, first the playdate. I am heading out for the day with DH to points south, no, not Florida, we are heading the South Haven and Saugatuk for the day. We are actually meeting friends for dinner in Saugatuk, but there is a new yarn store in South Haven, called Needle in a Haystack, that has been open just a couple weeks, and I would like to check it out. I will show and tell when I return, cuz you know I probably won't return empty handed. Hope DH know that!:)

Onto Sidewalk sales, the following pictures are everything I just got a my LYS at their sidewalk days. I only spent $20.00. I was so happy, most of the yarns were 60% off, and I got two patterns for under $3.00 for both!! Actually more than two patterns, b/c one of the "patterns" is a book . It is really a book for ages 10 and up, but I thought a couple of the bags were very cute. So, I am the "and up" part of that book..:) I think the Berroco cotton twist, I will use for a couple of string market bags, and of course socks for the sock yarn. Duh! The green yarn is so soft, I hope I have enough for a pair of socks. There is 440 yards, so I should. Want to try and find a fairly simple pattern, put something that will show of the beauty of this solid color yarn. Any suggestions??? I guess that is all for now, I do have something else exciting to share, but will have to wait until I can spread the word. I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for visiting.

May I come over to sit & knit in your little oasis? It's just gorgeous! I love the seating, that beautiful bird cage & all the flora..a perfect setting for a relaxing knit.

Wow, those are beautiful skeins of yarn, especially the sock yarn.
