June 12th!

Hooray for June 12th! Today is the final day for the Dye-O-Rama exchange and I know that sometime soon some delectible, beautiful, yummy yarn will appear in the mail. Dye-O-Rama has been fun and I've enjoyed reading the other members' sites and getting to know my pal, PoMo Golightly. I'm now hooked on ginger because of I just had to buy an extra package of her preferred treats for my own sampling. Mmmm, it's almost as good as Chocolate! Thank you Scout, Noelle, Monica and Cookie for organizing this.

A big thank you to Gina over at
Sleepy Eyes Knitting! Today in the mail I received not one, but TWO books by Debbie Macomber along with an adorable kitty and yarn card. I've never read any novels about knitting before. I'm looking forward to trying out the patterns included in the fronts of these books too! Thank you again Gina.


I've slowly started to list items for sale over at eBay. It's been awhile since I've sold there so it took forever to create the listings. Ecclectic garage sale or shabby cheap (no misspelling here, this stuff has never been chic) are the adjectives that best describe my wares. Although this week I started out with some retired Fiesta pieces that I never use. Here's a link to
my listings. Ssssh, B has a birthday coming up so I'm trying to make some money to get him a special birthday/father's day present. He rarely reads my boring blog so the secret should be safe.

Cheers all!

P.S. this post has been edited. A picture of Elsebeth Lavold's Liv Sweater has been added for Sopranospinner. Thank you for visiting!

You'll have to let us know how the books are - I keep meaning to check them out of the library but never remember. :) How cool to have them both as a little treat package. I hope your Dye-O-Rama yarn gets there soon - it was a fun swap, huh?

I'm a recent reader of your blog, so could you tell me what sweater the sleeves are for, pretty please?

Gorgeous!

Okay, I'm back. I had to go see the pattern book and I NEED those sweaters! I love cardigans, I love Celtic cables, I love the book. So I ordered it. Thanks for the inspiration!

I thought I had commented, but realized that it wouldn't go through yesterday when I read the blog for the first time. I went to Ebay. The Fiestaware is beautiful. I really like it. Hope it goes well for you. Also, I love the colorway of your sweater. I can't wait to see it finished. Hopefully, modelled, huh? Take care and hopefully, your raspberries will come this year.

What a fun package! I enjoy reading books about knitting - the Monica Ferris books are also light and fun (set in Excelsior, MN, which is very near here.

ooo! I made Gyrid a couple summers ago. They are fun and she's a great designer - very flattering to a woman's shape. I can't wait to see the progress on Liv.
