It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood

It's Saturday. I'm in the office. It's a great day.

Wait--how can it be a great day if I'm in the office on a Saturday???

Because... this morning I stopped at The Point on my way to work. They're having their end of summer sale this weekend. 40 percent off a bunch of stuff. Look what I walked out with:

Can't see what it is? Need a closeup on the label? Well, here ya go...

Yup. You're seeing clearly. And it was 40 percent off. FORTY. FREAKIN'. PERCENT. OFF!!!

It's enough for a clapotis, or something clapotis-like. How could I not? It will keep me warm this winter. And it will go with the color scheme in the living room. So, actually, I bought it for the house. Which makes it OK, right?

So you see, even though I had to work today, it really was a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

Beautiful! Just a caution though, a full sized Clapotis took several people three and a half skeins. Going down one increase row might keep you in the three skein range.

Is it wrong that I'm coveting your L&L, even though I bought some (more) myself?
