My woolly friend indicated in her last post that I may have bought ‘just a little yarn’ on my trip to Woolfest. To be honest, I am quite proud of the quantity of yarn ‘found’ in my return luggage. In weight….not much really….500grams, give or take…
As is usual for this type of outing, I took cash. Along with a vow that this would stop any overspend…….do you see how sensible I am? However, my loyal woolly friend suggested it would be wise to take a cheque book, ‘just in case’. Just in case what, I thought.?
Then I started to think and perhaps over analyse a little…….what if the train became derailed on route, forcing us to take a taxi?
What if we were mugged? What if I had to use my cash to buy additional chocolate or cake? It seemed that many possible scenario’s could rob me of my cash and stop any necessary woolly purchases. Eek! I was horrified at prospect. In fact, the mere idea brought me out in a cold sweat. (Which at my time of life is unusual!)
My woolly friend regularly provides sensible and valuable advice……. so obviously I always listen! (Although, I often forget it five minutes later!)
And so, the cheque book came too. Thank goodness! My cash ran out half way through the exhibitors. Without the excellent advice provided, I could only have drooled at Jillybeans Yarns. Instead, I took a couple of skeins home to gaze at, and occasionally stroke and sniff. (Yes, I am truly a knitting geek!)
All in all, we had a great day. I may not have admitted to all my purchases…..yet. But then, I am not the only one!
PS. Look out for future posts on yarn sniffing.
