It's been a great night!!!!! For full details, see my personal journal. (The button link is to the right. It's called Being Brianne.)
I'm having a difficult time remembering what I've already written, so bear with me!
This morning I went to NobleKnits (my LYS) to find some yarn to make a knitting bag with. After consulting with the yarn goddesses, I decided on Galway and chose beautiful muted teal and oatmeal colors for the bag. I selected my needles and picked up a few I needed for other projects, too. I also saw some Sockatta that was great and picked up a bit to make Bryan some funky socks.
I about died when I got to the cash register and heard my total. YIKES! Yarn goddess #1 showed me that it was basically my needles racking up the bill. Yarn goddess #2 also pointed out that the Sockatta was also a bit more expensive, too.
Yarn Goddess #1 then said something that changed my life forever. "Have you ever seen the Denise Interchangeable Knitting Needles?"
"No. Show me, yarn goddess."
It was so beautiful and amazing that I had to avert my eyes for a moment to avoid looking fully upon it's magnificence and be blinded. After letting my eyes adjust to the glory of Denise I was taken aback by the wonder of it all.
And so, for $47.95, Brianne walked away from NobleKnits with Denise. And it was good.
Oh yeah, and I also purchased the Galway, too!
I told Bryan about the Denise set on the way to the Padres game tonight and told him "thank you for my anniversary present!"
I wasn't sure how I'd feel knitting on plastic, but it's not bad at all. I still definitely want to try bamboo and possibly other types of wood, but the plastic is working out well. I started Knitty's French Market Bag and am almost 1/2 done with the base of it. All in one night! Yay! It's amazing what you can do at a baseball game! *grins*
Pictures soon! I promise!!!
