What do you get when you have a knitting expo AND a yarn warehouse sale in the same day? Well if you add 3 slightly loopy knitters/spinners you get mayhem. (I’m leaving the photos large for full effect)

After the expo

This was after Annie, Ginger and I hit the Seattle Knitting Expo. And no the trunk was NOT empty when we started filling it. You can see the cooler in the top right corner but what you don’t see are the 2 giant containers of cat litter that took up space. I will have to look up all the names of the stores we hit but the far left stuff is mine. That includes 2 lbs of pencil roving to dye, 8oz of already dyed pencil roving, 2 lbs of superwash to dye and 1 lb of this yummy blue/purple/pink dyed merino.

Then we went to the Cascade warehouse for an inventory sale. Most of it was not stuff I like, lots of frilly fouffy stuff and the only 220 was Jet which I didn’t want.

After the Cascade warehouse

I picked up some purple bulky that I am going to make a felted tote out of and some white wool blend that may or may not dye. 10 balls of each, $40 total. Can’t beat the price of $2 a ball. I wasn’t able to pick up any Cascade for some fellow knittys since they only had the black. Sorry.

Now I need to lie down and think about what I have done.
