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!
Is that a nostrepine or something??
Glad you're feeling better and reclaiming your house!
I don't need any more yarn. Nope...I don't...
I will not even try to guess. It just reminds me of a chocolate walnut
