"I'll just glue it. I don't know how to sew"

Heard in (the very very very long) checkout line at Hancock Fabrics. I doubt the two guys holding the stack of multiple colors of felt yardage (and who look like they could play for the 49ers) sew either. Or the guy on the phone (to his wife, I presume) asking if he should get the pattern even though it's a children's pattern and not an adult's. And the guy holding two skeins of thick, brown yarn (that looked kinda like hair) was probably not going to knit it.

Yes, it's that time of year again. At least all the once-a-year Halloween costume "sewers" bring in revenue for our fabric stores. That's a good thing.

  1. Hi Lori!

    I just got back from Wal Mart and you were right! I did find a poncho pattern but I think I am going to try prettier one I found online. I haven't crocheted in years but I'm sure I'll pick it right up again.

    I did get some beautiful skeins of yarn! I am hoping to make 2 ponchos before Thanksgiving.

    You inspire me!

    BTW: too funny seeing you knit at work babysitting! That is a classic!

    Have a nice weekend!
