You all know my friend, Denise! She’s a wonderful designer, quilter, knitter and a good friend . . even if she often talks me into buying yarn I don’t need! Her Loopy Legend yarn is available here. You might want to get it while it’s there because the good stuff goes fast. It’s “Denise’s Mandarin Duck”.
I thought I had seen a picture Denise submitted for her yarn but didn’t remember what it looked like and you know me . . the one never wanting to buy yarn I don’t need . . I didn’t want to order Mandarin Duck if it wasn’t Denise’s yarn, even though I love the colors! So I wrote her yesterday afternoon and said “Is this yours?”
Last night we had to go to Home Depot . . pretty much the same thing we’ve had to do the past five days/nights! We had other things to do yesterday afternoon that caused everything to be off schedule so Vince said . . come and go with me and we’ll grab a bite to eat while we’re out. We ended up stuck in the restaurant for quite a while because a storm blew in. I decided to be one of those people I can’t stand to see . . the ones on their cell phones in restaurants . . and got out my cell phone. How long can you sit in a restaurant after your food is gone and watch it rain? I had an email from Denise and she confirmed that it was her yarn. I already had a couple of other skeins of yarn in my cart. One of them .. I wanted 3 skeins because I had a plan for it but by then, there were only 2 skeins left so I knew I had to get that order placed quickly. I got Denise’s Mandarin Duck and two other yarns.
Somehow, I managed to do it all on the phone, with Vince sitting right there .. not even noticing I was placing an order with The Loopy Ewe. Since that order got shipped today, Tuesday . . if it ends up arriving here on Saturday or if it comes on Friday and he takes off at noon . . which come to think of it . . I’ll bet he does . . I am totally giving up on buying yarn. I will know I am doomed to get caught every time I try to sneak a skein into this house.
