And this is for Cassie, at whose site the other day I made an innocent comment (must.try.cables.) and have since been on the receiving end of a small flurry of cable related emails. Look, Cassie! I.tried.cables. Thanks for the prodding...it was so easy! And I can see now why people seem to make these intricate sweaters so quickly...that need to watch the pattern develop. Now I have to add at least one cable project to my list of projects to shop for at MS&WF next week. (As if we need a link!)
And while Norma was at T.J.Maxx yesterday buying her orange suitcases, I was at T.J.Maxx buying this. (Is orange the new black now?)
I've always liked the Kipling bags but not their usual giant logos. (Or the monkeys.) And I've always liked messenger bags, but they usually look pretty goofy on me. This is a smaller, yet roomy, crossthebody type of bag, perfect for stuffing with a few neccessities and *pattern notes* and then flinging behind me as I dash from booth to booth, leaving hands free for petting (yarn, not sheep) and paying. And less than half price!
My happy happy mood was quickly soured when I stopped at Trader Joe's and was told (after an inordinate period of staring at the nut display....they must be here somewhere...am I looking right at them??) that they have discontinued YinYang peanuts!! (Sob, sob...)
And finally, some small consolation last night when the Indiana legislature came through for me. After decades (incredulously) of consideration, they finally voted to accept this newfangled idea. Sheesh.
