.... I kind of went to Berlin. Okay, not really. But LittleMy from the Knittyboards did and we did a swap when she went there and I went to Portland. Oh, the joy of knitty friends! Look what yarny goodness landed on my doorstep yesterday!
Love those gorgeous sock yarns, some of the chocolate yummies are already gone, and is that Naturwolle not me or what??
Brown and Pink. Perfect. Thanks Charlotte!!!
Now on to Blogstalking assignment #4 and #5.
Topic this week....three things I love and three things I don't love. This blog is all about things I love....knitting, family, socks that rock, my doggies, friends, traveling, Notre Dame football (in no particular order of course!!). So here are a few other loves.
1. Books. I love to read. I love a good independent bookstore too (my local favorite is Keplers).
This is just a sampling of my knitting books.
And my cookbooks collection rivals my knitting book collection. Although the Barefoot Contessa is probably one of my favorites! As you can tell here.
The current fiction book I'm reading is this. Thanks Disco for the recommendation!
2. I do love Diet Coke!
3. It was a toss-up between baked goods :) or a good crime drama on TV....and since its Tuesday night, Law & Order, wins out! Tonight its Law & Order SVU :) I love all of the Law & Orders, but I also love The Closer, Without a Trace. Good knitting tv.
Three things I don't love. Well, they don't deserve pictures in my book.
1. Household chores...all of them! Washing the dishes, laundry, etc.
2. Waking up early. Seriously. I do laugh that last year to make it to the day after Thanksgiving, 30% off at Purlescence Yarns, which started at 6am, I was out the door at 5:40am! My dad and Rowan were shocked. But since it was about yarn, they kind of weren't.
Now on to Topic #5...A statue.
Not sure if this qualifies, but it'll do. Rowan has this Eiffel Tower in our living room and I do love it because it always makes me think of Paris and traveling and that is one of the things I love.
In knitting news, I'm celebrating Socktoberfest this week by working on two pairs of socks! I've finished one of each. Hopefully a finished pair sometime this week!
