Yesterday was like an early Christmas. Even though I had to go back to work after my lovely long weekend, I was positive because I remembered that things were coming in the mail. My project bag arrived, some knitting and spinning items that Dylan ordered for me (isn't he an awesome boyfriend?) also arrived, and a pre-ordered music album was released yesterday. It's kind of amazing to me how much faster my day goes when I have things to look forward to. Kind of like when I'm at the end of a project, it seems to go faster when I know I have something else lined up. So after work, I was able to go home and collect my gifts.
Here's my new project bag from Slipped Stitch Studios! No mermaids, which I'm a little sad about, but that's okay. I can buy the fabric and make more of my own project bags and have as many mermaids as I'd like. I have two projects in there right now, and I plan on bringing it with me to the San Diego Yarn Crawl! The handle (which I inconveniently put on the other side of the bag to take the above photo) is perfect for hanging the bag on the arm of my chair at work. Also, it came with the pin I attached reading "Knit Nerd."
I finished the Laughingbird Scarf on the way back from Tombstone and started on my Ishbel shawl by Ysolda Teague. I had heard about this shawl from the Electric Sheep podcast. I love it so much already!
I've also been doing the Soak Photo Challenge. The above photo was today's post for "Stitches."
Last, but not least, check out this haul.
This came from ShopGoodwill for $40! And the fiber in the bag is probably around 2 pounds of Alpaca fiber. ShopGoodwill is an auction site operated by Goodwill, so there's lots of stuff on there for low prices. I've found so much fibers related stuff on there, like the above haul. Dylan got this one for me, but he said that after this I have to do it myself...this could be dangerous.
And since I've been talking about Tombstone the past few posts, I suppose I ought to show some evidence that I did go and get dressed up.
Last weekend was so much fun. Seeing people dressed up, being dressed up, and watching the shows was like stepping back in time. It was funny thinking and realizing that we were the attraction, I wasn't just a tourist. Lots of people asked us if they could take our picture, others just snapped away while we were browsing in stores. It was amusing to me. But alas, Sunday evening it was back to reality.
Until tomorrow, dear readers!
