Laura's Busy Saturday

Last night I learned that Mom had made separate plans with Paul and I, in an effort to please us both. This meant that we each thought we were going to a different place. I thought I was going to Warsaw to The Shuttle Shop to buy Malabrigo sock yarn finally as it arrived from Uruguay the previous Saturday.

Paul thought we were all going to Kokomo, so he could potentially buy a game he didn't even know if he could find in that town, as it was for the original Playstation not the PS2 or PS3. That's been a while.

Now, if I had my car, this wouldn't be a problem, but my car has been at Car Hospital for a few months. So I had to wake up early instead of sleeping in, drive to Warsaw on my own, since the store would (I assumed) be closed next weekend for the holiday. Because Mom couldn't very well travel to Warsaw and Kokomo (although it was assumed I would) I went alone.

And I ran into the group that meets to knit there once a month on the month's first Saturday. And there was Jeanne (from the last post's comments) who hooked me up with the right yarn for La Digitessa when I thought I wouldn't find it for months because she is a Master Enabler, along with my friend Rachael who gets me to travel to various places for yarn and yarn related things.

So I did what any self-respecting Digitessa knitter would do, I pulled up the leg of my jeans and showed off my new socks. I couldn't help it, and I don't think any of them would have wanted me to try.

I then bought Malabrigo sock yarn in a pretty color that reminds me of the violets that grow around my house this time of year. We get so many that it looks like the ground is only violets, in various shades of purple framed with green. I haven't taken pictures yet but Jeanne knows what color it is, she was there, and that is enough for me.

So we knitted for a while, and I passed around Cookie A.'s new book, Sock Innovation so they all could see it.

Then I went home and turned around to go to Kokomo. We went to three gaming stores, finally ending up at Game Exchange which had every system and their corresponding games from the start of home consoles. It was kind of neat, seeing all our old Sega Genesis games and all our cousins' Nintendo stuff working and there for us to buy.

We went home with Paul's new/old Final Fantasy games, and then I turned around and went to Jen's, then back to Kokomo with her for dinner and we hoped a movie, but there wasn't one so we went through the mall for my second time that day and then back to her apartment where I am now using the internet to write this here blog.

I plan on not running around after this, only sleeping and maybe petting Darcy, my poor dog who must be lonely and missing me by now. Poor baby.

I am hoping for less chaos during future weekends. But next week looks to maybe be that busy...

At least I have demands on my time!


  1. Mmm...Malabrigo.

    Hey baby, can I grope your yarn? (wink, wink)

  2. I will let you grope my yarn, Rachael, but that's as far as it goes...
