It's Friday! And, for me, the start of a 3-day weekend is almost here (my office is closed for MLK Day on Monday - YAY).
The other week I was surprised to learn that I had won a give-away over at Kim's and the package arrive yesterday. What lovely goodies:
Of course, the colors are all different than showing above. The darker skeins are a teal-ish blue and the middle skein is a pale blue/grey color. The yarn is an alpaca-wool blend and just gorgeous. So soft. Now I just need to figure out what to knit (I was going through various options in my head at 2 a.m. this morning when I couldn't sleep...at least there was something pleasant to think about!).
The row counter is pink and Soak is one of my favorites to use when washing my knits. Love it!
Thank you Kim for everything. It was a wonderful surprise.
So here we are back to our roller coaster weather. Yesterday it got above 60! Young son stopped by for dinner and we decided to cook hot dogs over a fire in our fire pit. Not my most favorite meal, but boy did they taste good cooked that way. Fletch added pinion wood to the mix and the scent was wonderful. Colin hung around for awhile to have a whiskey and cigar by the fire.
Tyg was around somewhere, but staying pretty far from the fire (it got quite windy and sparks and ashes were flying). Amazing to sit out by a fire on January 12th!
Our forecast for tomorrow is snow/ice. And so it goes....up and down and up and down.....
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I may be casting on a new project...but I really need to finish those Christmas socks first...only 3/4 of a sock left to do.
