This was a fun family weekend at Casa de Impulsive… Saturday I drove Mom down to Columbia to meet up with the rest of the fam and in out attempt to find a yarn shop my mom ended up buying a couch, three chairs, and a rug. Really. They’re coming back next week to pick it up.
So how does something like this happen? Dad and brother dropped us off in front of the shop that had not only moved without updating their website, but had the open sign standing out front. They were not open and it was starting to rain. **As an aside, I need to email this shop to let them know updating there info is important to the happiness of their customers. Shop FAIL!** Mom and I start walking down the street to meet up with the boys when a fabric shop is spotted. In we go. It started off innocently enough, looking at rugs, fabric… Then it started to pour the rain. I mean the sky opened up and all the rain in the southeast hit the ground. It was torrential. I go to the front, have a seat and knit while Mom continues to browse. I’m not sure how it happened exactly, but by the time the guys drove over to get us Mom was asking about the set and what kind of deal they could give her. It was good and that was that.
After all the wheeling and dealing we were starving and so headed over to Tabouli for a fantastic dinner. We were a bit raucous at times (it was one of those quiet restaurants and we would all be laughing uncontrollably), a good time was had by all.
I did get a lot of knitting done on the blanket. An hour hanging out at a fabric store will do that. Here it is with 2 skeins of Noro knitted up. Added the third today. It is coming along nicely. It’s starting to get a bit to big to carry around… hmmm… I really like knitting this garter stitch when I’m out and about, but it’s starting to get a bit unwieldy.
