So anyway

When Matty and I went to our baseball games way back when we also visited Strings and strands in Atlanta.
I got three vintage pattern books there--wait b/4 I go into all that let me just say that Strings and Strands was a cool store they had lots of variety and a whole room of clearance items. In that room is were I found a whole bin of vintage pattern books but since poor Matty had already been there for quite some time I just took the best three that I has skimmed through (out of lets say 8-10 I had picked up out of the first pile of books/mags) Of course I'll take pictures of some of the awesomely great and awesomely horrendous things I found in them later and post them up. That in itself was just way cool. Yep there's the picture to ur left. My cute little books- actually they are as big as Rowan books but anyway...
I had a really hard time at this store just because of the discount room. I just didn't have enough time to agonize over which things I really wanted and such so I ended up leaving things. I totally regret not buying more of the incredible deals/steals they had to offer. I did pick up this bag of peachy cotton yarn for $21. It's 7 skeins of NAIF (German) 100% cotton which equals 637 yds of yarn. I really wanted to make one of those nifty little Turtleneck tube vest from Fitted Knits. I'm worried I won't have enough yarn. I'm absolutely the person to think I have enough yarn and run out...and guesswhat? Can't reorder this stuff- nevertheless I'll find something great to do with it because I love the color and the sheen that it has.

That yarn looks yummy!!! I've heard nothing but good things about virtually all the yarn shops in ATL, so you couldn't have done wrong if you tried; LOL!!! Love those pattern books. Often times, they're fantastic treasure troves of ideas for future projects. :-D
