I’d say today was pretty satisfactory – despite the lack of accomplishments. But then again, we all need one of those days – you know, just lazy and do absolutely nothing kind of day without feeling super guilty about it.
Okay, so I did manage to finish a pair of sock that’s been sitting on back burner since fall: I present you, crazy salmon and lime Dublin Bay socks.
It’s made with J-Knits Superwash-Me yarn in AC-143. Yes, it is super neony.
And I strolled myself over to Needleworks, with intention of buying a skein of worsted wool for a hat. While there, I was very tempted to buy more sock yarns – they had Kureyon sock, Dreams In Color Smooshy, Araucania Ranco solids and all these insane amount of cool sock yarns and I resisted. I resisted and only bought a skein of 220 which was what I was there for to begin with. I know. I was being good.
And I headed home, and soon after I heard this loud knock at the door – and it was the mailman. He handed me this gigantic blue padded envelope, and all this was inside!
All these are from Ariel for my birthday! I was thinking about waiting couple more days to open it, but well, I gave in (okay, without a second thought) and opened it (right away). Between her and I, now we have 4 (phantom) matching pairs of socks. Yes, now we really have to work on them.
… and that toast-shaped pin cushion is hillarious! I love it! I mean, come on, who wouldn’t love a piece of toast?!
Thank you Ariel!
