My plan was to cast on for a quick and
dirty beautiful sock for myself once the Bloomin' Feet socks were finished. The plan was brought up short by the great yarn winding disaster of 2007. Some how the skein must have been tangled by the manufacturer when it was wound. I've been working on untangling it for two days. Every once in awhile I need to walk away as the scissors sitting near become very tempting. The idea of blue/green spaghetti sized bits of yarn has stopped me from picking them up....I want socks, not yarn spaghetti. I am hoping that by the time this pair of socks is off the needles (or at this rate even ON the needles) that I will no longer be in need of warm socks. This is a yummy, squooshy, bouncy yarn that Judyakathegoddess left with me before she headed South. Fiesta Boomerang is new enough that I had a hard time finding a link, but I think it's going to be pretty popular. It's BIG yarn and I expect (oh dear no expectations, please) to be finished quiet quickly, IF I ever get the yarn into a ball.
Remember the cute little Park City Cabin from this post? Well, Birdsong looked up and it's only $1,095,000. You can check it out here. Just thought it would be worth sharing with those of you who have big tax refunds to spend! Oh my, oh my...you know that poor little cabin will continue to be unloved.
Several of you have commented on the rocks I use as a back drop in my photos. They are in the Garden of Zen on my patio. The garden needs a good cleaning and the edging needs to be replaced. We're also considering a bamboo trellis with a climbin vine. As soon as it warms up a bit we'll make it a weekend project.
So, the BF socks are finished! I'm also working on a little surprise to included in the package and I might just send it out next week...a wee bit early as I'm too excited to hang on 'til the end of the month.
