Today was a pretty typical Sunday -- breakfast, laundry, knitting at the shop and grocery shopping. We're expecting some heavy duty snow this week so I wanted to stock up.
Christine from Lavenderlimes.blogspot.com stopped into the knit shop to say hi to Anne, who had taught her to knit some 12+ years ago. She snapped some photos while she was there and said she'd be blogging about the shop.
On my way home I stopped at my friend Carol's house to pick up this:
I wanted to get home super quick and examine everything up close but first I had to unload the groceries, put them away and get dinner going. In my haste to peel the sweet potatoes I tried to peel my fingernail off too!

Aurifil's fabulous Lana thread collections !!!
24 spools of yumminess:

Now just in case you think I've lost my mind, I can assure I have not. Had I truly lost my mind I would have bought this!
I'm heading to bed with my head full of creative ideas and I can't wait to get sewing. Good thing I'm on vacation!
P.S. I would have finished this post hours ago if I hadn't been running back forth to watch the Housewives of Atlanta finale!
