In the Face of Temptation

I showed incredible restraint and did not purchase any fibre while in one of my favourite yarn shops.  Gaspereau Valley Fibres had some tempting, drool-worthy new stock, too.  I patted, I fondled, I caressed, I fantasized, and then I walked to the cash and paid for only the one thing I went in for: a single Addi needle.  Not precisely the one I wanted but close enough. 

Then I went to Michaels' and also bypassed the yarn and only purchased the knitting needles I needed. 

See, I needed to outfit myself for this Saturday.
That's me spinning in the bottom right of the poster, but during the actual competition I will be mostly knitting.  Sheep Thrills of Gaspereau Valley Fibres are the Canadian defending champions from last year, but a team from Cape Breton already beat their time this year so the competition is on!
I'm so excited to participate this year.  Shear Delights will be awesome!  Only three sleeps!
