Seriously, blogs are popping up all over with 5-20 new posts. What is up with that?
So I know some of you have read elsewhere about a little shopping trip. I came out from behind my alias and met up with a couple other bloggers. (Yea, Guinifer is NOT my real name - when I signed up for this blog a really long time ago some people were concerned about axe murderers and stuff).
Anyway, Coldwater is having their big Sidewalk Sale and we shopped (well, I shopped, these guys just dabbled - seriously - three sweaters' worth)! Ha! I'm not even going to show you that today because my Cider Moon order came! But this? This is some seriously scrumptious hand-dyed loveliness from my new real-life friend Deb over at Wound Too Tight! Deb called this colorway "I Would Have Bought It Even During My Yarn Diet"! Yay - thank you so much Deb. Again, Knittahs Rule! Who else would bring presents to a Virtual Stranger? Send happy wishes to Deb who is getting ready to be invaded my her family soon.
Cider Moon's new Blizzard yarn in Pistachio:
And "Apple Crisp":
And I won the drawing for Best SP10 Pal and Robyn sent me two new sock patterns that I don't have (hard to believe - you should see my sock pattern notebook). I got Seize Diamondbacks by John Brinegar at www.yarnballboogie.com and Feather Pluckin' by Erin Vaughan at http://dorkybestfriend.typepad.com.
Other than the Elann.com email, the vendor emails have been slow this week. Probably a good thing? Huge Lacrosse tournament this weekend and next. Puck's 5/6 team did not make it to the Championships but the other two teams from EP are coming in strong so I'll be in the snack vendor booth at Flying Cloud - anybody wanna buy an Eagles Lacrosse tee-shirt?
Oh, what a gorgeous colorway from Deb! She has a good eye for color. Must meet YOU sometime, too!
So - if guinifer isn't your real name do we ever get to find out what it is?!?!
