So, Sandy is upon us, and I’m at home with my needles, yarn, and other crafting things. Oh, darn.
On a more serious note, hurricanes are no laughing matter. Many places in my area are reporting flooding. I understand the big part of the storm is to be here later this evening.
East Coasters, stay safe, stay indoors, and keep your wits about you.
On a crafty note, I was at AC Moore on Sunday and the yarn section was picked pretty clean. I guess knitters and crafters go on shopping binges before bad weather so they at least have a few things to do while being cooped up. I know that’s why I was there, and I had a lovely giftcard from my birthday to enjoy there (Thanks, Chet and Eric!). I got a lot of stuff, including a British knitting magazine that included free needles and yarn, a mess of cookie cutters for needle felting shapes, roving for felting, a Fair Isle book, and some practice yarn.
Oh, I did give Fair Isle a shot yesterday. I had to give myself a crash course in Continental knitting, but more on that later.
