At least not any more. Because I ate the entire can for breakfast. Well, let me clarify- I had a respectable breakfast of a cup of decaf, peach yogurt, and whole wheat bagel.... and then an hour later went to Walgreens and bought a can of Pringles (among other things) and then proceeded to eat the entire thing. Did I feel bad about it? A tad. Am over it and pondering dinner? Yep.
I have somehow been able to get away with not gaining a bit of weight during my first 6 months of pregnancy, even thought I felts like I was eating a lot. Now I'm about to reach month 7, and I've gained 8 pounds in a couple weeks. I have a feeling that all the eating I did in San Francisco helped that. But I did tons of walking too. Apparently not enough to balance out the chocolate croissants, iced coffee and muffins, huge breakfasts (Dottie's anyone?), and oh-so-many nice dinners. The little guy and I ate well.
I visited several yarn stores, and my favorite was Imagiknit. They had a nice selection of sock yarn, gorgeous beaded lace weight silk from Artyarns, and cute accessories. I also visited Atalier, Artfibers, and a couple others. I was surprised to find that many places had alot of empty space and could have fit a lot more yarn in their stores. That always surprises me when I walk into a yarn store and see bare floor and/or wall space. I mean, most of us knitters are hungry for yarn, and I was armed with a credit card that wanted to be used. I might have to make a trip up to Lansing to Threadbare Fiber Arts. I haven't been there yet (only when they were in Indiana), and I hear that place is a sight to behold.
So yes, San Francisco was very nice. I did lots of eating, shopping. walking, saw Blades of Glory (Boom!), drove across the Golden Gate Bridge, saw my first Redwood. And while all that was great, it made me appreciate home even more- and Joe, who spent the better part of his spring break (he's a teacher, so he had spring break) painting the downstairs sunroom/den, waxing the hardwoods floors, and completing projects with fumes that I can't be around in my delicate *ahem* time.
Now that I'm back in Fort Wayne, it's back to business as usual. Though there aren't many usual days around here anymore. I came back to oh-so-many orders, which was wonderful! Thank you! And since then many of you have taken advantage of the sale yarn that I hinted about before I left. If you haven't checked it out yet, take a look. I also returned to find that almost a half ton of yarn had been delivered! So that's what I'll be concentrating on this week, and I'll let you know when new yarn is up. You'll find many Lorna's Laces colors have returned already including Blackberry, Carrot, Carol Green, Cranberry, Natural, Old Rose, Pine, Pewter, Bittersweet, Georgetown, Mineshaft, Mt. Creek, and our specially dyed colorway the SSYC Stripe. I'm also expecting a large shipment of the Flamingo Stripe yarn, which sold out in a matter of days when it came out a couple months ago. It's the yarn that Lorna's Laces donated 20% of the proceeds to breast cancer research.
