Today was just like that. (although they did help out with the colours better than I had expected, thanks girls!) Only it took me longer than usual. I went in to buy a (for me, that is) HUGE amount of yarn to make me one of these:

Isn't it AWESOME?! It's the Great A'Tuin, from the magnificent Disworld-series written by Terry Pratchett. Who happens to be my favourite author of all time period. I saw it, fell in love, showed it to the boyfriend, who went 'COOOOOOL' and bought me the patterns for June's sea turtle and elephants. So I bought heaps and heaps of yarn today! 11 skeins in total! (although I might go back and get a different colour blue for the disc. I'm not really happy with the colour I bought because it's too dark, but still a very pretty colour of blue so I'll make something else out of it.)
But wait! There's more! I bought...
Knitting needles! Pretty bamboo ones! I decided that the pretty street-coloured yarn I bought earlier (the one on the right) should be made into mittens or fingerless mitts or gloves or something but all the patterns I loved most for it were knitting patterns. So there! An incentive to start knitting! And because reading blogs and Ravelry got me spoiled before I even learned to hold knitting needles properly, I decided to go for bamboo needles because they felt so much more comfortable than the aluminium ones. Now let's hope I can learn to knit just as fast as I learned how to crochet.
