beads, gems, jewels and yarn

It's only 3 days until the weekend. At least it's a long weekend. I need a holiday. All I want to do is sleep. I'm tired and achy and I feel yucky. But at least I'm knitting. I've got ruffles and tempting and a shawl from the dyed dreams and I can't find my camera. That's what happen s when I clean.

This past weekend, the gem and Jewelry show came to town at the Expo Center. A while back, my sister and I struck a deal, she would come with me to Maryland Sheep & Wool festival, and I would go with her to the jewelry show. A fair compromise, or so I thought. After the umpteenth table of beads, and jewelry (that I can't afford), she looked at me, and said "you can go to the yarn store, I'll call you when I'm done here." I have a wonderful sister. Luckily for me, Capital Yarns is right next to the Expo Center, and it was a shorter walk to the store than to the car. They had a very helpful staff, and their selection of yarn was quite good. I came out with a bit of Tahki for a summer sweater. My sister can spend hours looking at beads, I can spend hours looking at yarn. We all have our things.

On Sunday, I woke up early headed out for pancakes and Star Wars. It was excellent. The pancakes. And the movie. Now I know why the fanboys are happy.

Have a great week y'all. Happy knitting.

Yeah, we all have our things :) Sounds like a nice time at Capital Yarns--I have not heard of them before. I think I need to take a day and do a yarn store tour.

The Tahki sounds nice--hope you find your camera!
