"Haul" elujah

"Haul"elujah

Yes I'm talking look at the "haul" I scored this weekend. In a spontaneous twist of events I got to go to Toronto to KNITTERS FROLIC. What an amazing time. I'm just barely starting to come out of the yarn coma I was in. I found out about this Thursday morning and was able to tee up Tonias arrival to coincide with a lift to Toronto, were I hooked up with other knitters and had a weekend in Utopia. Knitters Frolic is akin to the Annapolis boat show, but for knitters. Booth after booth of knitterly and near orgasmic woolly stuff. I'm still not down from the high. I fell off the yarn diet just for the weekend. I condensed the four shopping bags to two for show in tell to Al. I wanted to play down the amount of fun I had. Now the array of goodness was such that some of this score is for gifts for other dear knitter friends who did not attend. The tea mugs are adorable and have a notch on the back side for the tea string. I finally got the silk hankies I wanted to make a pair of mitts. I am told silk is 4 times warmer than wool. Hard to imagine. The colour is Morning Rainbow. Should be easy to identify of I ever lose one. At 66 bucks a pair I will not be letting those babies out of my sight.

One more week till week see Urology. I have a long list of questions. I'm hoping with all the recent infections, consideration might be given to an earlier surgery. We'll see.

I am having difficulty posting the "haul" photo so what you see is the Marketplace.
