I read about it on Facebook the night before and got all excited about doing something to celebrate "I Love Yarn Day," especially since I've not knitted at all this past week. I made plans to cast on my next Christmas gift, either another monster (this time for a precious one-year-old girl), or a pair of super fuzzy slipper socks for my cousin. However, I had to stay at school two hours late for my daughter's first basketball practice of the season. After that, I dropped her off at her grandparents' house to spend the night and stayed longer than I wanted chit-chatting with the in-laws. Then, my darling hubby took me to eat at our favorite cheap Mexican hole-in-the-wall, and I had a jumbo margarita... which got me tipsy (I don't drink much)... and then I went to bed. I wasn't able to think about yarn and/or knitting, after all. I missed "I Love Yarn Day." Poo.
I'm going to try to make up for it tonight, and I'll be sure to participate next year. Maybe I'll even knit in public! Ooooooooh!
