Yes, it really is that........

Orange!!!! I think I can be pretty certain he won't be missed while hunting in this hat.

Of course, the picture sucks -- I have to set up a light box and practice....a LOT....but you can sort of see the stitches anyway, can't you?

Posh Yarn = HEAVEN!

Oh MY! Tell me this isn't heaven!?!?!?!

I met a new friend today who (UNFORTUNATELY, and I say this only because I don't NEED another favorite yarn maker!!) has turned me on to a FABOO new source for some of the most gorgeous (sock) yarn ever created, as you can see by this photo. Thanks a whole lot, Elaine!! (of course, I am just kidding, I LOVE this site!!)

Would you look at those colors? Can you imagine looking down at your feet and seeing this? Ok, perhaps not practical in 100% silk, but I don't care! I can use them as bed slippers! (and she's got some other lovely merino/silk blends that are pretty impressive as well!!)

Oh, to be RICH and able to afford to buy every yarn I fall in love with!

To see more of what this very talented artist have to offer, please visit Posh Yarns in the UK - Can you say YUMMY!

You can file this one under lavish sock yarn I must have (smile)

I also just got an order of a Cashmere/Merino blend that I cannot wait to open (can't do it until I find some room though) I also I promised myself that I would finish this hat first, since Chris leaves on Saturday and I know I will have to cast on that Cashmere the minute I open the box!

I have a feeling there will be another message much like this one being posted next...if the yarn looks ANYTHING like it did in the auction pics that is!

That's it for now. Two posts in two days is more than I can handle! I just didn't want to lose this link, and this is the only place that I can be sure that I will be able to find things lately. Too bad I can't store yarn here too.....

Boring knits!

But at least I am knitting! Depression has been the word of too many days -- at least I can add knit to this day :) I am working on a BORING st st with ribbing BRIGHT orange hunting hat for my bro. The one that made it possible for me to upgrade to this spiffy new version of blogger (by selling me his "old" (only about 2 years!!! Mine was TEN!!!) laptop.) And for a steal too! I owe him :) Thanks, Chris! LOVE the updated, MUCH easier to use blogger! Requires much less brainage! (yes, I do know that isn't a real word, but this is my blog, and I am not in school any more, so I don't care!)

He will be moving upstate soon, where it gets much colder than here, so he will need it. Hopefully, he will come home with a girlfriend too, he needs not to be alone anymore. Just hope this time he picks someone with HALF a brain! PLEASE! I will settle for half!! Stupid just won't cut it anymore.

That's all I can manage for now. More when I am able to drag my arse back here....
