Seriously now. This little piece of marketing was on my doorknob this week. I can't believe that this business is doing well in this economy.
Note: This is a beautiful pattern. While I find patterns like these demand more of my attention (patterns with a longer repeat), I find they move along really quickly when I'm knitting them.
Miscellaneous Vents & Brags:
So a year ago I bought a skein of hand-dyed sock yarn from an Etsy store that has been marinating in my stash. This morning I decided to wind it up for the upcoming sock-knitting binge and found myself spending an most frustrating hour. Have you ever had a hank of yarn so big that it wouldn't fit on your umbrella swift? Grrr. It is not pretty, and ever so bewildering.
What could I possibly brag about, you may ask? (Hmm, not a trick question!) Puck had his first non-scrimmage hockey game last night. Let me tell you, I'm surprised we've made it this far into the season after the horrible experience he had last year. The best news was that he got drafted onto a team with his friends and a FAIR coach. No short-benching the C players!
ANYWAY - Puck's team played a game against Eastview last night - it was a very exciting game and Puck got the winning goal (with help from two other players - he knocked the rebound into the net!) My boy is rediscovering why he loved Hockey in the first place!
When I replaced my broken swift, I got an extra large one to deal with just such skeins.
Why I get upset about an abundance of yarn I'll never know...
Love the socks, can't wait to see more!!!
ps. I have a friend who hires a woman to decorate the INSIDE of her home every year. Wow.
Who are these people who can afford these lights? I am not complaining though, I get to benefit from their light displays. I love them
