Shopping interrupted

My SO and I headed north to Knitting Today yesterday, the 29th (this is important), for their end of year sale.    It was a beautiful day for a drive in the country, as a freezing fog had left the landscape frosted.  The trees made me want to knit something in evergreen and sparkling silver.  Much to our surprise, when we arrived at KT, there were no cars in the parking lot and the closed sign hung in the window.  WTH?

We turned around and headed back to town and found our way to Sarah Jane's, where I managed to find something to spend my money on:

I need some orangish socks (haven't picked a pattern yet):

The following is for a Suede Baby Hat and "Ugg" booties (Ravelry links):

And this is for Oor-flap muts (another Ravelry link):

When we returned to my house, my SO checked the newsletter from KT that was hanging on the refrigerator and read that the sale was Dec. 27, 28, and 30.  Oh.  Maybe I need to pay better attention.  And I could not go today, the last day of the sale, because this little stinker came to visit:

Diaper blow out!
I also had a gift card from Barnes and Noble to use, and among my selections was One Yard Wonders.  It was only later, when I was perusing the book in the privacy of my own home, that I discovered a bunch of pages were missing and had been replaced with dups of other pages.  WTF?  I've never seen that in a book before.  Needless to say, I will return the book and hopefully be able to replace it with one that has all the pages, nothing more and nothing less.

Happy New Year!

Oh, fun new yarns!

I've had a mystery novel (of all things) with the last 30 pages just duplicates of the previous 30. Talk about frustrating! Then last night Andy was flipping through a library book on concrete structures for gardens, and partway in the pages wen all out of order. Very strange.

(Ha! I was skimming Google reader while drinking my first cup of coffee for the day, and your first sentence totally flummoxed me until I had just a bit more coffee. The Reader snippets didn't have the underlining, so I was just trying to work out "knitting today yesterday" without any caffeine. Addicted perhaps?
