Squee!!


I bet you are wondering about the new house... its been ours for a whole week now and no blog entry about it. Well, that's because we have been so busy LOVING it!! It's fantastic. Dirty, but fantastic. And, to be honest, not nearly as dirty as I would have thought it would have been.

Some discussion of the new paint job? Ok, you asked for it.

We went with Harvest Brown in the Dining Room and Living room. And Baked Scone in the rest of the house. Oh, and as a special treat to Bunny (who will be 4 this Monday!! Already!!), pink and purple in her room. Was she ever happy with it!!


Also, my swap pal sent my stuff to me. Yay! Who doesn't love receiving stuff in the mail. And, so's the better if its yarn stuffs!! And, it works out perfectly with my move from Thursday yarn porn to Friday yarn porn. Thursdays just weren't working for me.

I love everything she sent!! 2 skeins of Paint Box in the most delicious colors. Burgundy, blues, greens. What's not to like?? I don't know quite what they want to be yet, but I intend to find out!! She also sent me a beautiful mole-skin note book and a loverly card with a pop-out birds nest in it. Way cool. Oh, and a very funny bookmark that made me smile as soon as I read it. My swap pal was gimmesanity (Sharon). Thanks so much swap pal. I loved it!!


Ok, and since Fridays (now its Friday, remember) are for yarn porn, please enjoy some shots of the new Malabrigo I bought, courtesy of Make One Yarn Studio. Oh, and though it will be hard, please try not to drool onto your keyboards too much. I know what type of project I want to make with it, but I wasn't sure what stitch pattern I wanted to do the project in, so I wound one of the skeins up into a ball and took it to work with me today. As the day went on, I realized what it wanted to be and can now start on the project. The only problem? It has to be *done* for Monday, and we have to be out of our old house by then. Ergo, we are moving all weekend and I will have to find bits of time to hide away and knit while everyone else is killing themselves moving. Do I feel guilty? Nah, for the same reason that I could justify buying 3 skeins of the softest yarn on Earth... its for a good cause. Hopefully I will be able to show a F/O on Monday and reveal the recipient. Keep those fingers and toes crossed.
