Remember Socktoberfest? At the end of it, Lolly had giveaways to those who joined. Amazingly enough, I was one of the winners! Very exciting to me because I've never won a blog contest before. I get with my girl Mia (I'd add her link but her blog isnt coming up for me) who will be sending out my winning yarn. Well just like everybody else, November was a busy month for her and she mailed it out later than she wanted to, so she told me she added a little something extra.
Here is what I got.....
Isnt it lovely?? Here I was expecting yarn to knit a pair of socks with and I get enough for TWO!!
But wait, there's more!!!
Ok this woman went over and above the call of duty!! She also included a card that had a closeup of a cat in a pink afghan. SO cute!! Mia you did an incredible job and I am thrilled!!
But that's not the end of the yarny goodness. I went to JoAnn's today to use up my 40% off coupons. I havent been in that store in a LONG time and I've been debating getting some yarn for
CIC. I decided to go today to pick some up with my coupons. Here's what I got.....
Some Patons merino wool in Paprika. I'm going back tomorrow for a huge sale and may get another skein in a coordinating color.
Meanwhile I need to get back to working on #1 Son's vest. I've been so busy this past week, I havent knit on ANYTHING since I finished my socks.
