It is 1:50, and I’m home from the Super Ball Sales. Here’s the swag purchased at Ewe Knit Kits and Yarns:

Most of it is Punch, an alpaca blend purchased at get this... 70% off because I bought more than 10 skeins. I'd call that a killer deal.

An then there is this: Purled Llama silk that I have been coveting for over a year.

Yes, my friends, it was a killer deal, but I still spent my yarn allowance for the sales. The silk will be a tank shirt some time in the future...

Here’s the swag from the Hook and I. My sister bought the yarn, but I'll knit the sweater... so this doesn't even count against me. It is Cascade’s Sierra Quatro. Youngest sis is having surgery on her jaw and mouth, so her mouth will be wired/banded shut for about 6 weeks...this means she’ll lose about 50 lbs. She wants me to wait until she loses the weight. Makes sense to me...and it gives me much more time to knit my stuff. ;)

WOW, I think I missed some really good sales! So I have learned the lesson to never schedule work on Super Bowl weekend so I can yarn crawl!
