Well....

You all know I am trying to save money to fund my trip to Maryland Sheep and Wool. But I received a 20% off coupon for Joann.com. So I used this to purchase at OTT Lamp for my bedroom. The additional 20% off coupon paid for the tax and shipping, plus a little bit more of a discount. I justified this purchase by the fact my current Ikea lamp likes to turn itself on and off at whim. And the lamp's cherry wood would match my antique bedroom furniture. Let's all hope that it works and I don't have to return it.

And a friend is ordering from kpixie, so I am finally breaking down and ordering this pattern. Now, I know what you may be thinking, but I already own a store bought sweater that is very similar with long sleeves, and it looks totally awesome on me. And I get tired of boring stockinette sweaters, so this will be a good thing for me to tackle someday. I have not bought the yarn yet...I will leave that to post MSW. Also, I am holding off on buying the SWTC tofutsies yarn that is calling to me....
Don't worry. Meanwhile, I am still stuffing "Mommy's tip jar" (my piggy bank) with all of my spare change and dollars when I break my yuppy food stamps ($20 bills). He's too cute for words. So my eyes are still on my goal of going to MSW. That reminds me, time to get to running my errands and balancing my accounts, etc..

I love the piggy bank! What a wonderful play on words.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that you make it to MSW -- I never have, although I've been to Rhinebeck, and if they're anything alike, you're in for a treat.

MDS&W is so great - I hope you make it! When I first tracked you down and popped in I thought you'd be coming from Alaska - I was like "wow that's some serious yarn dedication" lol ;)
