Yummy-ness

All the yummy yarn that keeps showing up on my doorstep is starting to make my head spin a little bit. Just look at this yummy-ness!


This is "Noblesse" from Cherry Blossom Fibers. Her Etsy site says that more yarn will be coming on December 11th, so I guess I better give DH my credit cards now! The yarn has a beautiful sheen to it & is oh so soft! I just wanted to cuddle it! I wonder what sock pattern will be worthy of it?

I'm finishing up a second hat for the Soaring Eagles Project. I decided that I'd keep charity knitting through today & then tomorrow would be one big mailing at the post office. In the past I completely avoided the post office in December, but last year while waiting around awhile I started people-watching. Nothing helps pass the time quicker than when you stop focusing on how long you have to wait, to guessing what's inside all the boxes cradled in peoples arms & then hearing the p.o. workers discuss where each box is shipping to.

I just couldn't resist sharing this photo of our Grandkids. I know it's a bit grainy (it's a photo of a photo), but that's because I'm not smart enough to figure out how to use my scanner correctly. I can scan the photo, but it won't save the photo in its original size. Maybe I should get out the instruction book? For Christmas, we're getting a whole mess of photos from my step-daughter. Now every room in my house will have these two cuties!!

I'm mailing 2 hats to Soaring Eagles tomorrow. And the grandkids are just so precious. I have 2 grandkids by marriage, too. Such fun, isn't it?!?

Oh fer crying out loud, I already told you I knit two hats for SE. Blame it on holiday-mush-brain. Sorry!

Okay, based on that yarn, I should resist clicking the link to that Etsy site. But I know the minute I finish this comment - I will click right over. Right before Christmas too - you are so evil. But those little grandsons are angels!!! :)

You are so right, they are absolutely adorable!! I know what you mean about not knowing how to work the scanner, I think it was a stroke of pure luck that I was able to figure our out.
Pretty yarn, I've put my credit cards in a safe place too. ;)
