Knit-Purl first to pick up a couple skeins of Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift because I want to knit the Beaumont Tam. I was also one of the first twenty people to arrive so recieved a free gift from them, a pretty spring green skein of Staccato Sock yarn. Twisted was also giving away something to the first forty people, but I just missed that by arriving at 10:30am. I did get store front parking though! Same with Knit-Purl. I tried stopping at Saint Cupcake on my way to Happy Knits, but was foiled in stopping due to utility construction blocking side streets and filled street parking. I looked around at Happy Knits but even with a 15% discount I wasn't buying. I had parked halfway between them and Yarn Garden so stopped there too. I found out that the S264 Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn has been discontinued from a nice girl there. I have a skein I had thought to do socks with, but not really feeling it. So was thinking of doing a Fan Shawl. I'd need another skein, so another skein or similar colorway is needed. (I think it may be more cost effective to get a couple skeins of Knit Picks Chroma. [Sunrise colorway])
From Yarn Garden it was back over the river to Urban Fiber Arts, Cindy's shop! We had talked Wednesday night about the needles she had gotten in. I need US4s for socks for the DH (think I mentioned this) and I don't have any outside of my interchangeable set of US5s, so bought two of each. I might actually get Gail's fingerless mitts done now that I don't have to do them on the non-pointy Brittany dpns they're on now. ;-) I found storefront parking at Cindy's too. My luck in that didn't hold out for The Button Emporium though. Luckily there's a parking garage a block over. I found some clasps for the Raspberry February Lady Sweater. Now I have to sew them on! I resisted temptation and didn't stop at Cupcake Jones while I was at UFA.
I was low on gas and ready for lunch so headed on to get that done, so didn't stop at The Knitting Bee or For Yarn's Sake. I might be able to do a quickie at For Yarn's Sake on the way to the SCA meeting tonight.
