I need an intervention in fun

Well, the yarn buying season has started. Every year it starts this weekend with the big Textile Center garage sale. Then it moves on to garage sales, estate sales, Shepherd's Harvest in Lake Elmo, etc. I kicked off in my own special way tonight with the Textile Center.

See pics. I brought my own bags this year. Last year I didn't and was sorry. The garage sale at the Textile center is a really big deal for yarnies and fabric hounds like me. It is serious discount prices on seriously fantastic yarn and fabric in seriously large quantities. Last year I learned a lesson. I was somewhat indiscriminate about what I bought last year, and brought home some stuff I'm not sure I will ever use. This year I was picky. I only got goooooood stuff. Still, I walked out of there with well over $700 worth of stuff for $100. I got 100% silk yarn, silk blends, wool, needles, stuff for my charity knitting, I had so much fun! Everyone was so nice, I chatted and knit in line with some women waiting to get in, no one was pushy, everyone was polite and said please and excuse me, it was such a good time. I had actually thought about not going, but I am so glad I did.
I will try to take individual yarn pics this weekend and upload to ravelry so you can oggle my goodies.

Glad you scored so well! I can't wait to see it when you log it into your stash!
