Lost and then Found

Cleaning out a drawer a few weeks ago resulted in a long lost gift certificate. Gave up on finding it months ago. I have this tendency to put things where I just know I'll remember them. Uh yeah...proof in the pudding that certainly didn't work out. 


So I took a stroll thru the Knitpicks web site when I found the certificate. This book has been on my wish list for a while but it was out of stock at the time. I signed up for the email alert the minute it was back on stock and on August 9th, the order was placed. It arrived today! Woo-Hoo!
The new Reverie is a so so soft, cowls are begging to be cast on. The grey glitter sock yarn will grow up to be a shawl. It's a bit darker than my monitor showed but you know how monitors can be. The book is wonderful and my needles are begging to cast on a sweater. Last but not least a few skeins of the Bare Hare to find their way into the dye pot. I'm one lucky knitter :D

Yummy!

I have "safe places" too. Highly annoying, but I can't seem to correct the problem.

Finding gift certificates you lost (or forgot about) is as good as finding $ - yay!

OOoh! Let me know how that book is. I've been contemplating getting it, but wanted an honest review first. :) Might have to get some of that Reverie, too. Look at the ideas you just put in my head!!! lol
