  • This way you can love that single skein more. No dividing of attentions, jealousies, or closet affairs.

  • Oh, that all looks so good! I like that cute packaging of the Soak, yarn and nail polish… like when do you need your nails to match your hat? But, cute!

  • How very restrained of you!

  • “I met Védis. But time’s up. More later.”
    How can you leave us with such a cliffhanger?!?

  • DBChen, you took the words right off of my keyboard! Who knew that our dear Kay was such a tease?!

  • So when is she coming over? And what time would you like us all to be there?

  • I went intending only to buy what I could with the cash I had on hand. But as I was trying to avert my eyes from the scantily clad Koigu fashion show runway models I found Neighborhood Fibers from Baltimore. I’m pretty sure I heard the credit card say “nevermore” when they rung up the sale.

  • Love the cardi on the front of that Japanese book. Send it this way when you’re bored of it! B x x

  • Oooh, does that Japanese book have a name not in Japanese? I’m with Belinda: love that cardigan.
    My credit card is sagging a little now, mostly from the weight of knitting books. Isager yarns were my downfall in the yarn department. And some Lopi. Just to test, you know?

  • I recognized the books, but that is partly because I have enough Japanese to be truly dangerous. I have one soak box. I bought it partially based on getting to try on each of the mitts. Only one of them fit me without any modification, so I decided that was the one for me even though I’ll admit that baby pink isn’t my best love.

  • I could not remember “Neighborhood Yarn” s name. Since I managed to restrain myself in her booth (on Fri evening) of course I thought of her stuff all weekend. You are my external harddrive of the weekend.
    “I knit my panties.” Good one.

  • Oooh ooh ooh, love soakboxes. The color on my nails today would match Madelinetosh Citrus! BRIGHT!

  • so great hanging with you, Gale & Sarah! and of course Cara – she of the splits!

  • OK, I was WITH you and never noticed the Japanese bookstore booth at all, or that you purchased something there, hopefully the day before because surely I couldn’t have been that distracted. Or..maybe I could have been.
    ps your 11th hour cashmere purchase was so good, I had vicarious shopping fulfillment. That good.

  • Soakboxes? No I didn’t know. But now I do, so now you should worry about me! They’re charming.

  • I made a Juneberry out of a DK silk Neighborhood Fiber Company yarn… love, love, loved it! Her colors are amayzing!!! I’m glad to see her getting some notice.

  • I too would have bought “Clark Gable”. I’m a sucker for anything closely related to “Gone with the Wind”. I’m just a Scarlet wannabe!

  • “I knit my panties” is totally my new catchphrase.

  • Now I want “I knit my panties” Tshirt. Giggling at the thought of my middle school students reaction if I wore it to school!

  • Hey, is that January One? I sure miss her regular blogging.

  • I have that same Soakbox! Haven’t done anything with it yet, though.
    Your yarn is really pretty.
    Doesn’t everyone knit their own panties? :ducking:

  • I do not need more japanese knitting books. I don’t know why there’s a tab open for Amazon.jp, but there it is.

  • Somebody should go snap up the ONE blue soakbox available on Amazon — free shipping with Prime! (I would have bought it already if I weren’t still doing penance for some vacation yarn shopping)

  • I so want that T-shirt! Quick-someone with graphic arts skills get on it!
