Weekend Update

“What is a weekend?” Oh Dowager Countess, how I love your quips. I hope your own weekend is going well! Mine is going splendidly.

Today I went on a little shopping spree. My first stop was Knit Picks. I swear I do not work for them – I’m just a fan. 🙂 Anyway, they’re having a pretty fun and fantastic sale. Lots of their orange and black (random aside: any Orange is the New Black fans?) yarns are on sale. I scored a few skeins of a yarn I have been wanting for 40% off. Procrastination paid off, and my stash runneth over.

I also took the opportunity to pick up a skein of the new Curio crochet thread. Has anyone tried this yet? There are some fun colors – I chose Victorian. Pictures to come.

Next, my grandma and I hit the town to check out a local yarn shop I haven’t been to yet. It was great, and full of ladies working on projects and chatting. Can’t wait to visit again!

After an amazing lunch (buffalo chicken mac and cheese so good it should be illegal), we checked out a consignment shop. I scored a serving tray that came with a folding stand, which will be perfect as a portable work surface. It was $6. Six. Dollars. Can’t beat that. I think I’ll paint it, but I haven’t decided yet.

What have you been up to?
