lookie lookie

so on saturday we went to altoona and to my LYS i did go! look at what i brough home. all but the book that is. i got that at walden books in the mall. some of that is for myself. others are gifts to be given and made. the lime green cotton yarn is made right here in PA... gotta support PA yarn goodness. i love my LYS they ladies that work there are super nice! tomorrow is a knitting night but i don't have a baby sitter so i don't think i'll be able to go. i'm totally bummed. we don't know anyone yet so it's really hard to find a babysitter. we like to know about our sitters before we leave the girls with them.
well anyways i've gotta closer thought on the Sockpal socks... the sock yarn in the back is for her. i'm not sure of the pattern yet though. I think that the leaf lace sock pattern i bought she would like. so i may do that. even though the pattern is for a gift. i sitll really like the diamond sock pattern. well i have to figure what she would like huh? b/c they're not for me are they?

so look what my lil bro sent me all the way from korea...
2 sets of spoons and chopsticks. they are soooooo beautiful. and in pretty boxes i feel like i have some real treasures that i need to store in the valut or something. LOL not that we have a vault. now i just need to make some food suitable for chopsticks...
and also this beautiful painting! how awesome is that? now i need to find a place to hang it safe from little hands. off to hang things. have a wonderful knitty day!

Those chopsticks are so beautiful!

I totally understand about the babysitting, too. Luckily, I got asked to teach the 12-13 yr. old Sunday School class at church so I got to know a lot of the kids really well...relatively quickly. Which is probably why I don't get babysitters very often! ha ha

I love pretty things. It's so nice of him, and thoughtful, to send you gifts.

I like the green too. Bummer about knitting night. You'll have to start your own. On nights we don't go to the yarn shop, we all head over to your sister's house. She has her kids in bed already (or almost) and we do it late enough that our kids are at home in bed too. Then the hubbys get some "cave time", and we get some "girl time."
