Day 27......BLACK FRIDAY

Finally, I am helping my sister out with a post, sometimes we collaborate, but 95% of the time all of the credit goes to her and she does a fine job.

In all of my years, I have never ever gone out for Black Friday. It has never crossed my mind to get out the bed at 4:00 am for the madness. My record was broke today, because at 4:30 am I was on my way to the Black Friday sale at Fibre Space and a big THANKS goes out to Arthella, I dont think I would have gone if she had not offered to pick me up. I really could not believe that CiCi was not going with us, we tried to get her to go but she actually had to work. Everyone knows she would have been there first in line with camera in tow-- as her tshirt says "I am blogging this". So now I was charged with filling her those are some big shoes to fill. I am just glad I had my camera because when I talked to her she just could not believe I wasnt taking pictures. SURPRISE Sister.. you taught me well.

Arthella's goal was to arrive at 5 am and to be first in line......mission accomplished. I had no idea what we were going to do for the next chilly hour because the store was opening at 6am. Danielle had it all planned -- coffee and donuts for us to enjoy while we waited. It was a great way to start the holiday season off.

We ran into Susan, Barbara, Deb, Niki and even Olga was there-- ladies sorry to put you on blast, but it was great seeing you. It was lots of fun-- we went to breakfast afterwards....the Black Friday sale was very much worth it...would I do it again...OF COURSE... the things we do for yarn.
Sister here are a few pictures.. didnt get as many as I would have liked but I had to focus on my purchases... I didnt take pictures of my purchaes, maybe tomorrow. this was wayyyyy to much work. I got yarn to make 5 hats, 3 fingerless mitts and our lexie barnes needle cases... which I am very excited about. Sorry you could not join us, but we are going to make sure we get your vacay days scheduled for 2010 ASAP

I had to be at work at 4am ( don't feel bad I always have to be at work at 4am) and we were making fun of people who get up that early to go shopping. Now if my LYS had a Early morning Black Friday sale - I might've had to be late for work!
