Now the above actually does not have much to do with this post... but believe me, it will be good background information to tuck away if you drop by my blog through this upcoming week. Just saying.
This purchase here was a find that was just too amazing to pass up.
Claudia's Hand Painted Yarn in the colorway "Steelers"! The very colors of our youth football teams and the local high school. I don't think I could've even justified passing this up and still considered myself a good mother. And, heck, even if they don't become socks in time for football season, I can just wave the hanks around like pom-poms at the games!
Finally, a couple of gratuitous kid pics...
And here's an older one of Dan-the-Man that I just came across on my cell phone. It expresses the very essence of his enthusiasm for life. (The dark side to that enthusiasm, btw, is the ability to throw one heck of a dramatic tantrum.)
