Rather Be Knitting ...

I think this could very easily be the title of my entry almost every day!

The trip to Lambspun was great. It was fun to meet Lisa, and she had a HUGE surprise for me! I had told her I'd been wanting to buy a ball winder, and had planned on getting one this weekend. When I was getting ready to pay, she grabbed the ball winder from the counter and told me I couldn't get that. WHAT???!!! That was one of the things I'd definitely been wanting to get. She then preceded to tell me she'd already gotten me one. I 'bout fell over.

That is one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me, and I would not have expected it in the least. Thank you sooooo much, Lisa!

The other purchases I made at Lambspun included two skeins of Brown Sheep Wildfoote in Symphony (yummy!), a darning egg for kitchenering my socks and a pattern for felted fish. This pattern was actually designed by the owner of my LYS in Sterling, Fiberspace. My son decided I just had to get that pattern on Saturday, though.

After paying for everything, the four of us (Lisa and her daughter, and me and my son) went to Wendy's for a quick lunch.

It was so nice to actually get together with someone close to my age who has some of the some hobbies as I do! Lisa, hope we can do it again sometime!

I also made a quick stop in Greeley at Wild 'N' Wooly. I'd never been to this shop before, never knew it was there. Cute place! And it has quilting stuff, too. So next time we're in Greeley, my mother and I can both be happy with stopping in there.

Today is also my dad's 56th birthday. Happy Birthday, Dad!
