My Knitpicks Victorian Yarn Sampler arrived today (it doesn't count as buying yarn, right?). I love this! Can't decide which project to knit first.
Also on my list is this Little Lace Bag by Barbara Coddington. It's the bag featured on the Bag-A-Holic Yahoo Group this month.
Just have to find the right yarn.
Tomorrow there is a "Celebrate the Sheep" day in a nearby town. There will be spinning demonstrations, sheep shearing, and roving, natural dyes, and hand-spun yarn available for purchase - think I just may have to go and check that out - just to look of course!
Sunday I'm going to a scrapbooking class. We'll be using stamps to create a card and a scrapbook page. Doesn't look like there will be much time for housework once again this weekend - oh well! I learned how to take care of that a long time ago. It's a secret - but I'll share it with you.

1. Open a new file in your PC.
2. Name it "Housework."
3. Send it to the RECYCLE BIN
4. Empty the RECYCLE BIN
5. Your PC will ask you, "Are you sure you want to delete Housework permanently?"
6. Calmly answer, "Yes," and press the mouse button firmly......
7. Feel better?
Works for me!

Oh how I wish that housecleaning thingie really worked. I have cut way back, however, on how often I do it since I have gotten older.

What pretty yarn!
Going to Boston for this weekends games. Hope the weather holds up! Looks like we may get rained out on Sunday. I will be bringing yarns for dishcloths with me to work on - esp if there is a rain delay!

Your yarn from Knit Picks looks great! I've never ordered from them, but will have to do so one of these days.

Quickly reading over your post, I thought you said it is "Celebrate the Sleep day" . . . I guess I'm tired. So I promptly joined the bag-a-holic group.

I got my sampler from KnitPicks too! I ordered Victorian and Rennaisance (sp) both, but I like Victorian colors best. One or the other will be a prize for an upcoming blog contest. (suuurrreee it will) Hope you had fun celebrating sheep!
