Bonus hour + can't go home yet + no baby in sight = trip to a LYS
I'm under the strictest of yarn diets--no yarn purchases with my own money in 2011--so it's been a good long time since I've been in the confines of a yarn store, and not only because I do most of my purchases online. Knit and Stitch = Bliss was nearby and I'm in the planning stages of a new gift (which ); it was quite the winning combination.
I had my first encounters with tosh sock, Colinette Jitterbug, Malabrigo Sock, and Claudia Hand Painted Yarns. Omigoodness, you guys. I may have to break my yarn diet. Also: Addi Clicks in bamboo??! Holy whoa. Also also: I learned that there are circular needles in the world with 11 inch cables. Ta-da!
