Playing Hooky From Knitting Group

I played hooky from knitting group last night. I had something else that I needed to do...Like purchase a gift for my mother for Mother's Day. I had a specific gift in mind and only a handful of places to go and get it.

I wanted to get her a wallet to go with a Vera Bradley bag she had gotten last week. She got a bag in "Yellow Bird" but it didn't have much of a bird on it anywhere. The wallet HAD to have a bird on it. Luckily I found one! I also got her some sticky notes in the pattern and a new notebook for me.

All in all, it was a good change to get out and do something else instead of going to knitting. Plus, I did call to say that I wasn't going to be there and why, even though I gave warning on Tuesday before I left my LYS.

I hope everyone survived without me, but I'm sure they did! I guess I'll find out tonight and I'll take some heat next Wednesday.

I am proud of myself for not stopping at a LYS not far from the Vera Bradley store that I went to. Although I would have liked to have gone, the last thing I need right now is yarn. Yes readers, I said it was the last thing I needed - for right now.
