a leetle contest

Inspired by Purling Pirate's blog contest (she had us guess how many skeins of yarn she would buy for herself at the MDS&W - neither of us won), I think it would be fun to have a contest here. I am going to Fibrefest on Fri (similar to MDS&W but way way smaller) and I'll be doing a leetle shopping. Leave a comment on this post before midnight Fri May 11th with your guess as to how much money (don't forget it's CDN and not USD) I'm going to spend. The winner will be the person closest to the total without going over.

I'll be picking up my knitting needles tonite so there should be some knitting content to post soon.

Kimberly received my KTE goodies and she likes what she got. Phew! I still haven't received mine. There was a slight hiccup and the parcel was returned to the sender. But it's on it's way and I should receive it soon.

BTW, Ricky's back home and we're force feeding him liquid antibiotics. Not Fun. His purr was kinda growly when he got home but now it's fine. We'll find out the lab results later this week.

ETA: I have changed the cut-off date for the contest to midnight Fri May 11th to give everyone an extra day to get their guesses in. Good luck!

I love how the numbers slowly shifted upward with each comment. Much like my budget when I go to a yarn store. I'm going to say 42 x 2 = $84.
