I Bought Me A Present

1 Apr

When I got home from work this afternoon there was a parcel on my doorstep. It had come all the way from Texas (yep, the big one over there, not the teeny little town on the NSW/QLD border).

A couple of weeks ago, a certain bad influence emailed me a link to this site. She knew perfectly well that I was getting my first pay that very day, but she sent me the link anyway (because, as previously mentioned, she is a BAD INFLUENCE). To cut a long story short, I decided to treat myself to some sock yarn.

Twenty skeins of it (and baby, is it ever soft!). That is enough for ten whole pairs of socks. Sasquatch has already bogarted the green for his bedsocks. Boyo wisely decided to wait until he could see it in person. If you’d like to see the individual colours, it will be going in my Ravelry stash tonight.

Hey, you know that scene in American Beauty? I reckon I’ve almost got enough sock yarn to recreate it. If only I still had a figure like Mena Suvari’s.

    Dude, my Ravelry friend activity is totally dominated by your yarn! Good for you. Although I would feel completely stressed by the fact that I had all that sock yarn that needed to be knit. I still haven’t dived into the Knitpicks sampler I got last fall… just started working on non-socky things instead. I feel a bit bad about that. It’s such nice yarn…

    I wondered at my friend activity on Rav and here’s the explanation. Totally Mandie’s fault – you’re not in the least bit to blame. You would have been had I succumbed to that link, but luckily I am the epitomy of yarn moderation ;).

    Great haul in some lovely colours.
