And Did I Mention...

I scored on the Tuesday Wollmeise sneak-up too?

Vincent, Campari Orange, and Zenzi

Yeah. I know. Gratuitous and gluttonous. But again, I literally clicked on the site at just the right time. It was clearly meant to be. Even harder to believe, I actually hit the 3rd sneak up too. But since I want to stay married (and the cc processing was a bit too slow), I passed on that one.

Anyway, it's not all for me. I've promised to share with a couple of friends... and as soon as they come and pry it from my cold, dead hands, they can have it. Just kidding. Sort of. No really, I am... because if I even consider keeping it all, Ken will put me to work at his shop doing oil changes until I've learned my lesson and recouped the cost of the yarn. So I'm only keeping three (or four) of the eight.

I'm really anxious to start using it but I have to figure out which color and pattern I want to use first. Meanwhile, I've been working on a pair of socks for a friend and my DIC Baby shawl.

DIC Baby Stole

I'm really enjoying this and I'm much more encouraged to work on it after the success of my Lace Ribbon Scarf.

BTW - Thanks for your concern for Travis. He has a fractured growth plate in his middle finger. Apparently it's the kind you can't see on x-rays (rolling eyes) but since it's twice its normal size and he hasn't been able to bend it since Monday, I decided to trust the doc on this one.

And yes, I do feel like I've gotten my fix of orange for a while.

Yum! The DIC lace is gorgeous! I can't wait to see it blocked.

So I'm going to have to come to your house to pry the yarn away! I could use a trip to Cal. We could get into tons of trouble. Wanna take the motorhome???

"But since I want to stay married..." *snort!* Imagine all the things we'd do if that weren't a consideration!

The lace is going to be gorgeous when it gets blocked. Sadly, my DIC lace is still marinating in the stash trying to decide what it wants to be. That happens to most of my stash though.

Very nice Wollmeise score!
