Four of us from my weekly knitting group got up super early, 5 AM, to drive to Columbus for Knit Picks warehouse sale. We had early bird tickets so we got to go in at 8 AM. Thank goodness we did!! The best kits were gone by the time the general public got in at 9 am. We also got a wonderful early bird goodie bag that contained needles that we had planned to buy for $10!!
Turns out the sale is not necessarily a yearly event. It has been several years since the last one. I will be better prepared with planned projects and desired yarn if I go again. I already have too many projects with its yarn in my queue so I didn’t really plan to buy much. But the prices were indeed amazing so I wish I had planned definitely.
Of course we had a nice brunch together before heading back home. I had never done road trips with anyone but my husband before finding this knitting group. Hopefully even as our lives change, we will find time for each other. I certainly would never have made this trip for the sale if it wasn’t for the four of us going together.
