After getting up today, I took care of some things at home, and then I eventually got ready and headed out. I decided to go check out Effiloche, since their website said that they were open 11-7 today. Well - I got there, and they were closed. Ginette was there, but with most of the lights out and she was restocking shelves and stuff (it looks like they've gotten more stock since the last time I was there), and I am really mad that I didn't call before leaving the house. But you know what?? I figured that a new shop that has a website, that has the hours on it .... would be reliable. Wouldn't you think? I was really disappointed upon arriving there, feeding the meter, and then the shop being closed.
So, I made plans with Kadi, to go to both Effiloche and Mouline tomorrow. I am thinking about Zara Plus yarn in Charcoal for Jamie's scarf. (Since he doesn't like anything in my stash, this is a great excuse to go yarn shopping!)
So, since I was angry, I took a trip to Walmart, to do some feel better shopping. I needed a new pair of slippers (got fuzzy ones, yey!) and some strawberry jam for Jamie, and well, I wandered over to the yarn department (I refused to buy yarn there anymore, I'm a snob, what can I say?) and found these awesome knitting needles. They're plastic, but so FUN!
I got them in a few sizes (and each size was a different color). TOOOOOOO much fun. I also picked up for my SP9 pal the same pair as above, 8US/5mm, and have started putting together her Xmas package. They are just wicked. I still am dying to get my hands on a pair of Knit Lites, but I can wait on those. I don't even know what size I'd get.
Here is the progress of my Irish Hiking Scarf which is actually going to be a neck warmer (that's about as much yarn as I have):
Tomorrow morning I have a date with Gaz Met sometime between 8am - noon. I hope they don't show up at 8 am, but also, I hope they don't come to me at noon. Tomorrow night I have our hospital visit at the Montreal Jewish General, and Wednesday morning I decided I will go for my diabetes test (the one you're supposed to do at 24 weeks pregnant). I didn't feel like going this morning.
