Annual Trip to the Tent Sale

Yesterday was the start of Spinrite's annual tent sale in Listowel and a van load of us were there to check out the deals.  We had two young knitters with us and they quickly picked out their yarn inside the store.  

Out in the tent it was super busy.  When it's so crowded you can barely walk around you know the deals are great!

I was looking for sock yarn this year and once I found what I was looking for the girls and I spent some time together so their Mom could have some uninterrupted shopping time.

We were all fascinated with these big spools of yarn and it kept them occupied looking for the largest ones

I just kept hoping that no one would get an arm stuck in the cone.  

When everyone had their garbage bags full it was time to check out.  People were lined up all the way to the back of the tent waiting to pay for their yarn.  It was a long wait.  Even for us adults it was a long wait and garbage bags full of yarn are heavy!  The kids had a harder time waiting and with no yarn to play with what's the next best thing....a cell phone.

Some selfies were taken

and about a hundred random pictures like these 

but it helped pass the time.

Before heading to a local restaurant for lunch we made a stop inside the store where we found more colours of sock yarn.

I showed remarkable restraint and this is all I came home with this year.  This sale is on for 2 weeks.  The trick for me is not going back.....
