Wow, it's been a while since I've been here. I've been really busy with work lately. The girl that is over my department is leaving, and I have been "designated" to take on her responsibilites. Not sure if that's a good thing or not yet. I'll let ya know. :)
Anywhooo....I'm sure you know that The Loopy Ewe just had their one year anniversay on Aug 1. They ran a contest to see who could guess how many skiens of yarn they had in stock that day Would you believe that the correct answer was 7977?!?! Woweee.....just think, wouldn't that be fun to dive into? :) So, CONGRATS to Sherri and the guys over at The Loopy Ewe!!
Having said that, I have gotten new stash in to report about.
These are also from Mama Blue knitting goods. These are SWM semi-solid yarns. colorways: Girl and Apricot
This, of course, is STR. I actually got these from a destash blog. Lucky me! :) These are actually my first skeins of STR. Can you believe it?? colorways: Firebird (exclusive to the sock club) and Titania
This is what I've gotten in recently. My DH has told me that if I receive any more packages, he's taking them to the trash. HA!! (whatever) I'm working on my Booty Club socks as we speak, but I don't wanna post any pics until I get one finished. I recently decided to try sock knitting with 2 circulars, as opposed to DPNs. So, I ordered a pair from Knit Picks. I'm still trying to decide which I like better. There are pros and cons to both. I'll leave you with this. Trish posted this showing the results of new Inox needles. I had to laugh! Why, you might ask? Because THIS is what happened when I got those new KP circs!! :)

Okay, well, I can't really say that I'm totally surprised. I'm not really "mean", I just stand up for myself. I don't take "crap" from people. But I think I AM nice once you get to know me. :)
The sorting hat says that I belong in Slytherin!
Said Slytherin, "We'll teach just those whose ancestry is purest."
Slytherin students are typically cunning and hungry for power. Important members include Draco Malfoy (Harry's nemesis), Professor Severus Snape (head of Slytherin), and Lord Voldemort.
ETA: If you're in the YP booty club, I'm interested in what patterns you guys are thinking of using for the first "booty". Let me know!!

OH MY GAWWW!!! I got my first Yarn Pirate booty club box in today. While I can't show you what it looks like yet, let's just say it was well worth the wait and money. I soooo love Yarn Pirate yarn. Georgia really has the gift for dying yarn. And we got a couple of very cool goodies too. If you're in the club, I know you will agree. If you're not, well, I'm really really sorry. :) I will post pics when everyone has had time to receive theirs.
