Knitting in public can get you in trouble

During lunch today, I went outside by the Dome to knit awhile before heading back to my lab to read more boring papers. I was listening to my iPod and working on the scarf that I started the night before, when two ladies walked up to me to inquire about what I was making. They were so excited that "young people" were knitting these days. Somehow at 26 I don't really feel like a young person anymore, but I digress.

It turns out that one of the ladies worked at the amazing new yarn shop that has opened up downtown within the last year. This is the yarn shop that I have grounded myself from after going in and realizing that I literally wanted to purchase every yarn in the store. I can eat Ramen noodles for a month, right? She was telling me about all the great yarns they have in now.

I want more yarn.

I still have yet to get some 'good' yarn. I've been sticking with the Lion's Brand stuff. That's why I stay far from my LYS. I told my husband that I was going to have my birthday party at a yarn store and he looked at me like I was crazy! LOL

Nicole, Yes! I'm talking about Sit n' Knit. It is so amazing, but the pricetag is a little too much for a graduate student. I love the yarns they have there.. absolutely beautiful.
