How’s that for an imaginative blog entry title? I know what you’re thinking now: “Where does she come up with them?”
I did not blog yesterday about my Wednesday night visit to Knit Happens because I needed to elevate the ankle when I got home and didn’t feel like taking photos (ankle is coming along, btw — thanks for your inquiries and good wishes).
But I did indulge in retail therapy.
Rowan 4-ply Soft to make Alouette from the Rowan Vintage Style book. I blogged about how I was strangely drawn to that design earlier this month. So I succumbed.
And there was a mysterious box waiting for me there, from Tish in NY.
An amazing array of Spongebob stuff! Words fail me.
You can see that Phyl-Phyl was impressed too.
Thank you, Tish! What fun!
And then I came home from work yesterday to find an alluring package sent from La Belle France! Inside:
A veritable smorgasbord of yummy yarns from the wonderful Becky!
The lavender-flecked yarn is a homespun, and I’m thinking it would make a lovely shoulder shawl or wide scarf. The fluffy tan is Louinie, and is wonderfully furry. The turquoise is “Flash” ribbon, and the black is “Gioia” — also a ribbon — but with sequins attached. I’m thinking about that carried along with a black or maybe silver fuzzy yarn for a special scarf.
So many fun yarns to play with! So many ideas of what to make! My head is spinning with the possibilities.
Becky, you are the greatest!
My Fern is growing. Here is the left side front. I like the collar very much and I am quite besotted with the little frilly bits!

Happy Friday to all!
