I went to the new Joann's store in town yesterday intending to only use the gift certificate I received from my mother for Christmas and my 20% off total purchase coupon to get some Pattons Classic Wool at a grand cost of about $3 a skein (for my non-knitting readers, it is normally around $7 a skein and I am making a blanket, therefore I need a LOT of it).
I walked out two hours and a full shopping cart later, and it wasn't just yarn that came home.
I did get a lot of picture frames so we can put some photos from the wedding and some nature shots from back east up on the walls. Everything that I bought was usable, except for the gnome.
Yes, I have fulfilled my life long dream of owning a gnome. I would put a picture of the new gnome (try saying THAT three times fast) but I can't find my camera anywhere. Suffice it to say, the gnome for my home is cute and he is holding flowers and Chris thinks he needs a Viking name. Not quite sure what Vikings and gnomes have in common, but apparently, in my husband's head, they go together like pork chops and applesauce.
Any one out there got a suggestion for a Viking gnome name, because I am pulling up blanks on this one??
