My boys are at that age when they like to pronounce their ownership of anything/everything they see. “My outside!” Little Buddha proclaims. “My goggy,” he tells me, pointing at someone else’s doggy. “Mines!” they both yell when arguing over a favorite CD/book/toy. They don’t yet have an appreciation for the boundary between what is theirs and what is not.
This week, I’ve been navigating that boundary myself.
Last weekend, I drooled over the brand-new Wee Wonderful patternbook that Hillary has recently put out. By the time I read about it, she had already sold out. But a little voice inside me kept saying, “Mines!” Turns out she did a quick turn-around second print. And on Tuesday….
Then on Thursday, a big package from Paradise Fibers arrived. I was shocked and delighted, because I had no memory of having ordered any yarn lately. When I opened it up, this is what I found.
Then today, I opened the mailbox and this was there.
two color cards of Lamb’s Pride goodness.
Now it’s time to make way for the yarn I’ll be ordering. Here’s a sneak-peek at part of tomorrow’s Saturday Seven, something that will no longer be mine. Three-plus skeins of Numei’s cotton chenille that I’ve passed on to Becky.
Pretty colors. Hated working with it. (I like Crystal Palace cotton chenille far better).
Oh, boy. Must. Get. That. Book. Her stuff is so adorable!
I made a fabulous sweater from the FCC pattern at woolywonder.com out of the Praire Fire red. I’d totally recommend it.
Oooh, the Prairie Fire red is definitely one I’ve been considering. I love the heathered look! But I also really like the Blue Blood Red and Spice. I hope to decide soon.
Cozy’s looking great! If you’re looking for a good way to sell other unwanted yarn, http://destash.blogspot.com could be a good resource. I’ve gotten rid of some that way.
hurrah!!! cozy is looking awesome!!!! that put together book is TOO PRECIOUS.
Wow, that sweater is really gorgeous! I can’t wait to see what color you choose.
Sorry to hear about all the frogging, but Cozy is looking lovely!
