First, we got a ton of new stones this week. OK, maybe not a *real* ton, but over 350 strands, at least, between the two stores. And the new seed beads, including new colors of size 6 and 8 rounds, and the teeny 1.8mm cubes, are all on the wall now.
And I got mugged. Yep, went into the DFW Fiber Fest on Friday morning (which is still going on on Sunday, you HAVE to check it out if you have yarn issues – http://dfwfiberfest.org) and was attacked by 4 big skeins of hand dyed amazing-ness called Mas Acero by Brooks Farm Yarns. I was walking by, and it jumped off the display rack and into my arms, completely entangling me. The only way to get free was to have someone help me stuff it into a large plastic bag, and I had to take it home so it couldn’t harm anyone else. Until it woke me up at 3AM saying “You know you should’ve gotten the blue too. You really need to get it before it’s all gone.”
But the drops match it so well!! And it’s really soooo soft. And some of the cubes are really quite nice with the blue that I got on Saturday. But Mary just doesn’t understand Yarn Issues. Sigh.
