The Painters are Gone (and the Virus is on it's way!)


We put the house together last night, cleaning and putting furniture back into it's place when I found this. I was so excited because it's an heirloom that means a lot to me. Can you guess what that little brown thing is? I'll show you later this weekend, but I love it. (Hint: at this point, it's about 100 years old.) Yes, it's sitting on a Vesper yarncake in a Project Spectrum color. It's in line after my Secret Project.

While I was waiting for further instructions on my Secret Project, I've been working on this:

This is Roza's Socks from Spring Interweave Knits. The yarn is Yarntini's 4-8-15-16-23-42 colorway. Can I tell you how much I LOVE this yarn? Now I am waiting impatiently for her next store update because people? This yarn ROCKS, and I want MORE.

Also, to live up to my reputation as Yarn Spendthrift Enabler Extraordinaire - check out this website: www.woolgirl.com

She is carrying a huge range of hand-dyed yarns, sock and otherwise. Her free shipping price is $75 - which is a more than I usually spend, but yesterday I was like a kid in a candy store because, me? I love discovering new (to me) hand-dyers. Her yarn prices are also very reasonable. ANYWAY, I was close enough that she e-mailed me this morning to thank me for the order and gave me the free shipping anyway! CUSTOMER SERVICE! Good customer service makes me SO happy.

I bought some Triple Scoop, and some Bad Girl - some of the others are gone already but you can see them when I get them!!!

Well, I'm off for a little exercise and then I am knuckling down to that Secret Project!

You enabler. :p

Is that a nostrepine or something??

Glad you're feeling better and reclaiming your house!
 
I want to say a darning egg, but that base doesn't make sense then. Cool pictures though, and thanks for yet another new to me link. : )
 
I was thinking darning egg as well, but the carved surface would make that difficult.

I don't need any more yarn. Nope...I don't...
 
You are terrible for my credit card!!!! I was already looking there and had stuff in my cart. Now I am ready to order. And here I am trying to behave.

I will not even try to guess. It just reminds me of a chocolate walnut
 
Triple Scoop! Hey, Miss T over at http://mysteryhouse.typepad.com/ has been talking about doing an ice-cream-themed KAL this summer. I have some Neopolitan yarn that I'm going to use.
 
A left over chocolate egg from Easter? Beautiful greenish and blueish and I wish you hadn't shown me woolgirl. I wish I knitted faster...sigh
 
Thanks for entering my contest! I took a look at WoolGirl and wow, oh wow. You ENABLER you!!! Damn, I guess I'll have to eat ramen again.
