So I went into Michael's this afternoon and found some Patons Merino Classic that I think I like better for this hat. It is actually a color combination that I am more likely to wear.
I received my patterns that I ordered from Kpixie . I got Rusted Root , Marigold , both by Zephyr Style and the Sahara sweater by Stitch Diva Studios .
My other yarn news is that I found a new online source called Fabulous Yarn . They have some of my favorite brands like Artyarns and Blue Sky Alpacas which All About Yarns doesn't happen to carry. They discount 20% when you hit $50! I ordered some Blue Sky Alpaca Silk to do the Clementine Wrap in the newest IK. I can't wait to caress it when it comes!
Today was a half day for the kids at school so I got to act like a grownup and go out to lunch! What a treat! Another treat was that Trader Joes just got their flower shipment in. I love to have fresh flowers in the house so I picked up 3 bunches of tulips for my big vase!
I always think about that scene in "You've Got Mail" where Meg Ryan tells Tom Hanks that daisies are the happiest flower. For me it's daffodils then tulips are a close second!
Kitty items--I caught Harley doing the "cow" as we call it. I've never seen a cat sleep like this. He tucks his front paws under and sticks his elbows out while stretching his neck out and putting his face flat on the floor!
Mikey is hanging with me on the couch while I write this!
