Birthday Yarn

One of the good things about getting money for birthdays is that it always fits and I will always be happy with the present!

This year I got money from my parents and parents-in-law (as always).  And this year I bought this:

Five gorgeous skeins of fingering weight yarn from Gnome Acres.  They are the following colorways from top to bottom:

  • Mint chocolate chip
  • Bumblebee
  • Hermione
  • Pumpkin spice latte
  • 'Tis the season
Bumblebee and 'Tis the Season are "Sparkly Gnome"...and I love this...75% merino, 20% nylon, and (are you ready for this?) 5% "sparkle."  I can't make that up...they have 5% sparkle.  I think that's just adorable and perfect and made me really really happy.

Anyway, my plan for this yarn is more least that's what I'm thinking right now.  It could totally change at some time in the near future.  Hermione is definitely going to be Hermione's Everyday Socks...but not before I finish Fire and Ice and then the Bertie Bots socks...oh and all that holiday knitting I'm supposed to do.

Last night "all" I did was address 2 weeks' worth of bills, package up 14 gift bags for my student workers, and continue to unpack and organize stuff from the trip.  (I'm happy to say that all the yarn is back in its place AND has baskets to live in despite Pearl letting me know that this particular basket should be hers.)

  1. Yay for birthdays, any excuse for new yarn and cute kitties in baskets. I love the fact there is even a shop called Gnome Acres. I love gnomes apparently. Your task tackling at home is inspirational. If I can get half of my list done this week, I will be swimming in happy.
