This will not be the picture-heavy post I promised yesterday. Not because I'm ashamed to show you the evidence of the crazy Stash-Enhancement eXpedition-ing I took part in at the Gibsons Landing Fibre Arts Festival merchant mall yesterday. Because there isn't any.
Because I didn't buy anything.
Oh, there's plenty of fabulous stuff to buy, but Pre-Process Piggy deciding to engage in a day of pre-shopping yesterday. I am, after all, currently unemployed, and must therefore keep the expenditures down. Frugality does not come naturally to yarnpiggy. So I decided to really look through the market carefully yesterday, when I had a good chunk of time to spend, and to visit the bank machine today -- once only -- after making a final list.
I'm not entirely confident this plan will be successful (there really is a lot of stuff I want -- let's face it, need doesn't really figure into it) but I figure it's good to have goals, no? With luck, there won't be too many photos of new additions to the stash to show you tomorrow. I promise to post everything I buy. (Eeeek.)
I hope I'll also have some photos from the workshop I'm taking today: Free-form knitting with Janet Armstrong, from Vernon. I'm a tad nervous, because Piggy isn't naturally a free-form kind of girl. I need to work on being as spontaneous and free with the stitches as I am with the spending...
