Gorgeous Color!

Just look at that color will you! I had to go outside and take the picture in the snow as I knew the indoor lighting would not do it justice. I think the colorway is called Orchid. It's for the beret-along I'm going to do. I could stare at it all day. I also bought this from Sonny & Shear and she sent along a little sample yarn too. It's so cute! I'm loving the colors in that too.

And YES I am getting a tax refund, yay! I will be able to get a new little TV after all. No more smacking that piece of shit little TV any more. And I can get my kitchen faucet fixed, finally. I'm sure I'll find things to spend it on, get caught up on some bills, and stash some in the bank.

I'm hoping to get the scarf done tonight. I've got about 2 or 3 more inches to go, then add the fringe. Good mindless yarny activity while watching American Idol.

Here's my other cat, Mia. Just because I felt like taking her picture today.

Yay! There's nothing like getting your money back from the government (although, I guess I wouldn't mind if they kept it... if they did something worthwhile with it)!

Too bad life keeps getting in the way of spending tax refunds on yarn...

Oooh that yarn is gorgeous. :) And so is your kitty.

Love the colors.

Not sure what (if) we're getting anything back...I should hope so given Mr. Larj's work situation since October.

Yum! I could stare at it all day long as well. I really want some....but must show restraint!!!

Glad to hear you can get a new TV....and some other needed things. I need to do our taxes.

You're so lucky, you have calm serene cats. My cats are like me, they see the camera and RUN. They’re little chickens.

That purple sample looks absolutley spiffy! I must resist the temptation of yarny goodness for a while, yet.
