Happy Birthday Connie!

Don't forget to go visit Connie's blog and Pick up Sticks today to wish Connie a happy birthday and to enjoy her 10% off to celebrate.

That out of the way. What do you do when you are stressed? This week has been a very busy one for me. It is a busy week working the job that I have and I have been getting prepared for the job hunt that will begin soon/has already begun. So last night instead of doing all the work that I really NEED to do what do you think I did to relieve the stress? I shopped!

Specifically I went to every yarn store in a 20 minute drive of my house. I was out dropping off a resume and thought," while I'm in Aurora I'll go by Needles and Knits (they are so super friendly there) and I bought some lace to make a shawl for me and a wedding shawl for my bf's sister (I'm still looking for a nice wedding shawl pattern if you have any recommendations leave a comment).

I also bought 2 bags of Debbie Bliss Merino Aran at Knit or Knot they had it on sale at the back of the store. I also dropped by Unwind to check things out there and bought a shawl pin.
And to make it complete I went to Serenity Knits and bought some Koigu (does no one in Newmarket buy koigu but me cuz they always have lots and I buy some every time I'm there).
So I am shopped out and have my fix. Does anyone else deal with stress this way?

Remember if you have any suggestions for shawl patterns for a wedding shawl in lace weight yarn let me know!

I think that everyone buys all the fleece artist they can at serenity knits, leaving none left for me! But I think its time I sign up for some classes at serenity knits in the spring.
