Monday is for....


went to the post office today and lookie here:

this is what I won from Gromit. Go over there and give her some love.
thanks Gromit!!

gorgeous orange-y sock yarn.

It's from Spirit Trail

sigh--love it.

so, I totally fell off the wagon and bought yarn.
now, in order to redeem myself, I have been looking for this stuff for a month and it is for presents.

the first:

This is going to be a hat for little man, and if it works out, for my nephew for Christmas.
it's for the Charlie's Cap Pattern from Magknits:

and the next...I saw out of the corner of my eye and had to go fondle it...

it's so gorgeous...

I think it's the Autumn Harvest colourway.
The LYS owner just got it in and doesn't even have patterns for it yet.
I told her I was going to make a felted bag and she can't wait to see it.
which means, I have to put it in on the list of stuff I want to make.
I think I'm going to try a booga bag--we'll see.

sigh..I love yarn, and it's becoming a problem...

Funny story: we went to a chili cookoff/fundraiser thing yesterday which was at a farm.
There were some sheep in the back so I said to PrincessB:

"What are those?"
"What's on the sheep?"
"What's the hair for?"

That's my girl!

pretty, pretty yarn and good work on the sheep, yarn identification!! My kids know all about sheep from our visits to the zoo. You know that's where we go all the time. :)
