I went in for a tape measure.......

and came out with this!

Not a bad haul! JoAnn's was having a clearance sale on a LOT of yarn and I decided to take a look. I havent had a desire to buy yarn in a LONG time (since the beginning of the year), but when the deals are this good, I just had to do it. The TLC will be for a kitty blanket (three strands knit up fast and make a nice sized cushy blanket). And the sock yarn, well the Serenity was only $1.97 a skein and the Kroy was $2.97 a skein! I would have bought more but I didn't like any of the other colors.

They also had some of their pots on sale at 70% off. In my mind I will be growing herbs. Reality might be a different story.

This wasn't the only stash bought. More jumped into my virtual shopping cart Wednesday night.

Some Classic Elite Summer Sox from SSYC. I really liked the way these colors compliment each other. It's really soft and I cant wait to knit with it.

But all socks are on hold due to The Tank. This is 2 skeins in.

I'm abt an inch from dividing for the arm holes. She just might have it for the reunion! Then I can knit on my cotton/wool socks while on vaca!

Where I will have more skies like this.....

Yarn is that way, if you leave a cart unattended, it will just appear in there somehow. Both virtual and literal carts seem to have the same habit.

That is a gorgeous sky!
