Goings Ons

Does that even make sense?  Right about now I don't care.  My brain is on a constant brain fart today.  Just too tired.  So please excuse the following run-on sentences, made up words, jibber jabber, nonsense that I'm spitting out:

Flocks of Yarn

Oh my, how I love coming home to yarn goodies.  Especially when I'm not expecting them to be there so soon!  I put in an order (finally) at Flocks of Yarn and was surprise when only a couple days later the box was in the vestibule!  Deirdre is awesome like that.  She's also doing a personal destashing right now so you should check out the yarn she's saying buh-bye to.  I'm eyeing that Ultra Alpaca for a laptop sock for myself (news of this to come soon).

But now on to the yarny goodness...

Flocks of Yarn order is here!

The whole shebang

lacy goodness

Colors:  Bobby Blue, Paris Night
*these are for a blog surprise coming up in the next few weeks ;o)

love these colors <3

Colors:  Blue Atoll, Dahlia
This was the pair of yarns that I could not for the life of me remember what I wanted them for.  Maybe a laptop sock, maybe some baby goodies since a friend just found out she's preggers :o)

technicolor sock yarn...oh yea :o)

Color:  Spectrum
This wonderfulness is going to be save from some Jaywalker Socks

yum yum

Color:  Tourmaline
Another one I wasn't sure what I bought it for but I think it was for a hat or scarf potentially.  It'll probably just be more baby knits (if it winds up being a girl).

lots of Eucalan

Small Bottles:  Natural, Lavender, Grapefruit
Samples:  Natural, Lavender, Grapefruit, Eucalyptus
The small bottles are for me (I already have a Eucalyptus large bottle) and the samples are for knit gifts, CFO's, and other random things (like the Magic Yarn Ball Swap)


Surprise!  Little extras that came with my package:  a sample Eucalan wash, business card with Kitchner stitch instructions on the back, a magnet, and my Fiber Friend (who has yet to be named...and I'm open to suggestions!).

Lastly, here's some yummy baked goods to share with you:

Aunt Mary's Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

The recipe is Aunt Mary's Banana Chocolate Chip Bread but I made mini muffins instead.  They only needed about 15 minutes in the oven (as compared to 60 minutes for the bread).  And they're smaller portion controlled.

Speaking of, 2 weeks ago I lost 2 pounds and this week no weight loss but I did go down a notch in my belt. Yay for Weight Watchers!

Also, Sweetie Pie Bakery is holding a giveaway in honor of Green Eggs and Ham!  Monday was Read Across America Day (first Monday in March) in honor of Dr. Seuss' Birthday.  This was one of my favorite things to celebrate with my kids when I was at the daycare.  Sigh.

That's all for now kiddies!



  1. Dude, you made a killing with your purchase! Nice.

  2. Yay! I'm so glad you got your order safely and quickly--and most importantly that you're happy with it! Thanks for the kind words, too. :)
