I could feel the shopping urge building and today all it took was my son needing fishfood to send me on my merry way. In reality it was a series of events that pushed me over the edge. I dropped my Shiseido compact and it cracked, so although I rarely put on the warpaint, I wanted to hit Shirokiya for another. I also didn't like the way that particular powder made my face red in photos. And, of course I had to buy fishfood. I am also on a quest to find a Panasonic EV-2510 Rolling Massager for my mom for her birthday.
Then there is the creative doldrums. I knit up the cute baby hat using that pink acrylic stuff and it is now going to have to be a toilet paper roll cover. I've cast on both sleeves for the Lush cardigan but don't feel like working on it. I made one blue Totoro, but he is still earless and armless. I also have to get away from all the left over Halloween candy!
And, the new Barnes and Nobles store opened at Ala Moana shopping center. I walked pass it on the way to the pet store. As far as I can tell they didn't have any knitting calendars, but I did pick up 3 knitting related items and two books.

Yarn and Friends is right on the way home, so I stopped in. I got size 5 bamboo double pointed needles, and 3 skeins of Noro Silk Garden. One color 8 to match the lonely skein I had left over from Clapotis. They had the 2006 Knitting Pattern a Day Calendar, too.
It doesn't take much does it. I really need to re-read Everyday Sacred. Instead of emptying my bowl I keep filling it up!
