New Stuff!!!

Hurrah! Lots of new purchases chez Shoes and Yarn. First we have, this weekends big purchase....the 40" TV. Note the movie for you Austen fans out there.
The sound on my circa 1996 TV has been going out for awhile and before my brother departs for greener pastures, I needed his electronic genius to hook up my tv. Hurrah! I started out looking for a 32" inch, then when I went, I was going to get a 37" and somehow ended up infront of the wall of 40" tvs and took one home. For the potential purchasers out there, it fits in the back seet of a Camry. A huge thanks to my brother, who hooked it up, and fixed my wireless router so I no longer have the snaking cord accross my family room to my laptop. Before you ask, he was amply rewarded with dinner and a movie since his wife is out of town.

My other recent purchase, I'm totally in love with. My trindle.

And here's the whole spindle. I love, love, love this. It's currently has some Columbia Top roving that I bought at Stitches Midwest last year that I'm spinning. I'm totally in love with it. You too can order one thought at Trindleman, or you can when he posts some more. Apparently he sold out at Maryland Sheep and wool. Other than the spindle, I bought yarn for two pairs of socks and yarn for the Hey, Teach sweater. but, that was it. I did not go overboard and I'm soooo proud of myself.
Other than that, work is crazy. My Nashua Surplice sweater is currently blocking in my spare bedroom, so I'll be able to start seaming that this week. Here's praying it will fit.

    Congrats on your new TV -- ours is over ten years old as well so I know what you mean!

    I agree with your previous post -- I too was really disappointed in the summer issue of IK and am wondering whether or not to renew.
