Went wandering this afternoon after having a lunch out (doesn't help with the weight, does it?) and checked out a new yarn store (to me). HATED it. Small. Full of fun fur crapola and other novelty yarns. Had bits of malabrigo, but nowhere near enough for a sweater. And the woman managing the shop was so utterly annoying I can barely put it into words. Not catching the social cues AT ALL. Said I wanted to pick up needles (I did want to, but they didn't carry the ones I favor). Ended up getting some pretty sock yarn and trying to get out as fast as possible. Chatchatchatchat. Why can't some people appreciate the need to be left alone?? I was polite - said hello, thank you, goodbye. Didn't skulk around avoiding all contact, but jeebus! Freakin leave me alone.

THe flip side was a nice gift store 2 doors down where I found a beautiful french enamel dragonfly pin for Ken's grandma for her birthday. Is it tacky to make sure someone doesn't toss it when she dies? She's 89 and going to kick it sometime and I'd hate for such a nice pin to head to goodwill.

Got a new load of 1s and 2s for sock knitting as I tend to bend the ones I have to hell. I'm working on using some metals when I can and I might eventually be swayed to them as more indistructable. Who am I kidding? I'm constantly going to need to replace the buggers as I lose them so stockpiling is a good strategy anyway.
