...and you know I love my cake. Lookit what came in the mail!!!!!:
If you have found me on Facebook, you already know this -- and you already know about my specialized Yarn Fast -- NO YARN BUYING UNTIL 2012. But I totally didn't buy this yarn so I get to keep it neener neener neener take that, universe! (Note to self: stop taunting universe.)
Anyway, this lovely stuff was a birthday gift; did you know Barnes & Noble sells yarn in their online store? THEY TOTALLY DO. Buried deep under a million clicks in a horribly unsearchable site, it's there, nestled between the DVD boxed sets and mystery audiobooks. (There will be books as well, I just haven't gotten them yet.)
It's not Wollmeise or anything, but there's a variety of reasonably-priced big box store fiber -- Bernat, Patons, Red Heart, etc. I now have three skeins of Lion Brand Sock-Ease in purty coordinating colors. And I think I know what I'm going to do with it, but first I'm just going to stare at it with a goofy smile, like I've never seen yarn before.
