Another package arrived this week, chock full o' fibery goodness, this one from my fellow-freeformer Knitsocks in Austin. She gathered up lots of goodies that she thought I'd like for my Freeform365 project, and she sure gets me. There's furry eyelash yarns in pink and green; pink raffia; 3ply mohair and a complementary wool dk weight, both in deep shades of claret; 2 skeins of alpaca silk; variegated orange sock yarn; and both paillettes AND strung seed beads! Not to mention the huge pile of fiber (about 1.5 pounds, I'd estimate, at least) that wouldn't fit in the photo. She spoils me!
For Valentine's Day, Cole paid for my membership in Blue Moon Arts' 2007 Rockin' Sock Club membership, getting me an entire year of sock kits + extra goodies and participation in the KAL. I'm a sock virgin, so this seemed like a great way to (cough) pop my sock cherry. Did I just say that? Oh, yeah, I did! Six socks in oh-seven!
And today, my friend Jim stopped by to drop off my player's package for this weekend's 20th Annual Bigfoot Disc Golf Tournament, sponsored by our club, Par Infinity. Wish me luck and cross your fingers that it doesn't rain! I've been attending since 1996, but this is the first year I'm going to play in it. DFL, here I come!
