Nellie Bly and Shopping

I have a “This Day in History” Widget on my google homepage and today there was a blurb about a Nellie Bly who went around the world and was a reporter. Check her out. She sounds like one ballzy women and I love ballzy women!

Anyway, since our office was finally moving today there wasn't much "work" going on. Last minute packing, some cupcakes for a few birthdays and a company-wide pizza party seemed to keep us all busy till we closed at 2pm. I snuck out as soon as I could and hopped in a cab to The Point in the Village. I had never been there before but I had a $50 gift certificate from my boss (yah she's pretty awesome) so I thought what the heck. I broke the bank a little but it was such fun. I picked up some things for my little contest winner but that's a big secret she can tell you all about it when it arrives.
I finally got myself a go knit pouch but I made sure not to get one in purple so Jen and I wouldn't get out knitting confused at group (that always sounds like I'm am AA member).
And I found the perfect yarn to make the puffball skirt in Knit Couture. I had been looking all over for the right yarn and I finally found it. Its 100% bamboo, is super soft and I think its from South West Trading Company? I could be wrong. I bought every ball they had in my colorway to insure I'd have enough. I can't wait to cast on.

Unfortunately it will be a while before I can cast on. I have to get through this last stocking and the garters and I only have maybe 3 inches done...UGH I guess it's back to work so many things to little so little time.
Oh for any of you Jane Austen fans out there, I finally finished watching the new version of Northanger Abbey and it was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good! Mr. Tilney (whoever he was) was possible the most charming man I have ever seen. I want one. Carl should watch and take notes hahaha...only kidding...a little.

That skirt is going to be great! The colour you have chosen is nice.

Thanks for your thoughtfulness in your color choice of GoKnit bag. I might have taken off with your stocking on purpose (err I mean by accident!).
