The “Wicked” Yarn Hop November 17, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — ndscribbler @ 6:45 pm

Tomorrow my friend and I are going to start our unofficial yarn hop.  We will actually be hitting up one (or maybe both) of the Fargo yarn stores tonight, but tomorrow once we get on the road, we have two specific destinations in mind.  The first will be in Fergus Falls and then other in Alexandria.  I’m super excited to see what other yarn shops have and I hope that I find some cool stuff!  It’s nice to know that I’m not really in the market for anything specific, mostly whatever is small and catches my eye.  Plus I have a budget, so that means no more $60+ per yarn store!  🙂  On our way back we will be stopping in Perham and Battle Lake.  If we have any time at all, we might sniff out a few in the cities also.  😀  I am charging my battery for my camera and can’t wait to take a million pictures!

I’m nervous that I will a) forget something here at home or at my MIL’s b) pack too much/too little and c) won’t have any time to work on what I’m knitting.  I was so close to not packing any of my knitting, but then I laughed at myself and tucked it into my knitting bag.  The weather is supposed to be gorgeous, but I have blizzard safe gear just in case.  Needless to say I’m excited and nervous all at the same time!  Nervous because this will be 2nd time I’ve navigated the cities behind the wheel.  I’m nervous that something bad will happen.  Of course nothing will, but there’s that uncertainty that makes me ill at ease.

But I’ve gotta get ready and get out on the road!
