One Happy Girl.
The Sheep and Wool was a damn good time. We went late, after I finished my term paper, and got to wander around for a few hours. I was going to babysit for Mama-E that afternoon, but didn’t need me in the end, so I got to go to the S&W after all. Yay!
Downside: I have no money.
Upside: I have Koigu.
I found it several places, but I fondled it lots in this one little shop, and then wandered off. When I realized that really, everyone was closing up now, I ran back and fondled some more. I picked two skeins, both a lovely blue/light blue/white event, and snuggled them. J said, “I like the dark blue a lot.”
I said, “Which do you think I should get?”
J said, “Oh… well here. I’ll get this one and you can make me socks.” He handed me a third skein, in dark blue. I squeed.
Then I said, meekly, “I don’t want to push it, but two would be better for a pair of socks.”
He said, “Oh, okay,” and handed me a second one. Then he gave mum $20. I gave her my money and the lady wrote it all down. Then they (J and mum) spent lots of time organizing my backpack while I wore it, trying to find just the right spot for Koigu, receipt, and camera.
Not that the backpack was particularly full, mind you.
So, good times!
