I'm Back!....Did ya miss me?

Back after a few days in Las Vegas...strangely enough the house hadn't caught on fire, the kids were clean, safe and well-fed and domestic life as I know it continued on in my absence. Whodathunk it?

This morning, for the first time in a few days, I was awakened by the pitter-patter of smallish feet. "Didja get my backpack?"...Target backpacks were the promised "when I get home present for the girls". Nice to be missed.

Anyway, I spent three glorious days eating too much, drinking too much and stuffing too many US$ into one-armed bandits. A fabulous break from reality! I did have one late morning to kill when my husband was forced to make an appearance at the conference that financed part of our little field trip. So, what did I do??

A leisurely breakfast spent drinking coffee and reading my book ..."Republic of Love" by Carol Shields, followed by a quick trip to Wooly Wonders!

I bothered the ever-patient and gracious Barbara for an obscene length of time, chatting about books, needles and of course yarn.

And only a couple things followed me home

A tweedy Cascade 220...

which just might be tweaked into Cinxia from the current Knitty

and a Chibi, but not a pink one

Fabulously great minds think alike. Did you read my post from Saturday?

Talkin' about the Chibi (same colour and I wanted the pink as well).

Glad to here you had a nice little getaway and that it included yarn is just the topping on the cake, oui?

What's a Chibi??!

( I hope that's not a dumb question, or something I should know by now :) )

I need a Chibi too. I always forget to order one when I order yarn online. I haven't seen any in any local stores.

Lizzie, a Chibi is a little capsule that houses yarn needles for sewing. It comes with 3 sizes. Simple as that. I've got yarn needles, but it's the capsule for storing them that I want.

For the life of me I don't understand pink Chibi mania. On one of my knitting lists someone put a pink Chibi up on ebay to see how much she could fetch for this elusive colour. Someone paid $60 US for an ancient Chibi, just because it was pink. I don't get it.
