Overheard this Weekend!

"That's not really her stash. That's more like her pretty vase of flowers she just puts out, right?" (Disco said to Rowan, referring to a basket of approximately 20 skeins of gorgeous sock yarns on my desk)

"That must be destashed. When are you seriously going to where that?" (Disco referring to a skein of fabulous, but maybe too bright for me, Yarntini)

"Yes. You must get it. You don't have any pink and brown yarn." (Disco sarcastically said of course, hehe)

"You're going to need another tub for your sock yarn that you bought today." (Disco said after I showed her one of my plastic bins for STR)

"Hi Vickie Howell." (oh yes, Disco just said hi as if they were best friends! And Vickie asked her to friend her on ravelry!)

"Look. Fug." (hehehehehe)

"I'm a junkie." (what I said at the Malabrigo booth, and look below to see why I said it!)

I can't believe I saw this just moments after I said no new sock yarn for me. It's like a terrible joke. I want that color - so beautiful!

Yeah, and you got the better color too, darn you! Then again, my minty one is very, very cute.

It was great seeing you and meeting Disco!
