Not long now...

So we're now down to less than a month to go until I buy yarn. I have lasted since February. Although I must be honest, whilst I haven't actually bought yarn, I have had plenty given to me. Oh such kind people out there feeling sorry for me!

Alexandra Palace is my spiritual home I'm sure! Especially during the few days the Knitting and Stitching show is on. Are you going? Any of you going on Saturday? I need to meet some Bloggers. I need to know if you are as insane in real life as you sound on your blogs.

I am very normal and sensible. I was the one carrying a monkee made of knit last year taking its photo at every available opportunity. I was the one skipping from stall to stall greeting the skeins of yarn like long lost friends. I was the one fondling the yarn, caressing it, stroking it. I was the normal one amongst all the nutters there.

And no doubt I will be again.

I'm so sorry I'm not going to get the chance to meet such a sensible friend ;o) at Ally Pally. I can't make it down this year but I would loved to have seen you skipping merrily amongst the stalls looking very normal indeed!

Oh if I was closer I would join you. What a lovely venue to have such an event. Cant wait to see what you bring home.

Aaak! Less than a month until the yarn purchasing commences! Is there someone at Ally Pally we should warn?

Or perhaps it will be like when you haven't eaten chocolate for a while - you (read 'I') have to work really hard to get into the swing of enjoying it again. Perseverance is the key!

I can't wait to see just how mad you go with your yarn buying - I have a feeling your sensible behaviour will disappear when faced with all the yarny goodness!

I won't be going but now I wish I was!

Enjoy every moment of the day. If I was there I'd be doing exactly the same only probably followed by a grumpy looking man.
