Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day! Hope you got some chocolate or something fun. I had tons of fun today and it had nothing to do with Valentine's Day. I went yarn shopping with my friends Cathy and Ava. And boy did we have fun buying yarn! We all had gift certificates to a local yarn shop, so away we went. We all came out of the store carrying a bag of yarn. Lots of yarn. Beautiful yarn. We were overcome by the yarn fumes. See what I bought:




Shepherd's Wool, Malabrigo, Alpaca. I just want to roll in it. It's all so soft and beautiful! I can't decide what to pick up and knit with first. But I will be casting something on tonight. And see the beautiful rose! My friend Ava gave that to me, it smells really nice.

And Mia just had to stick her nose in the yarn and see what's what.



I can't bring anything, including yarn, into the house without a cat sniffing it. After I put the yarn back in the bag, Shadow had to come sniff too.



Don't they know it's MINE! It's put away now. I don't want any kitties chewing on my pretty new yarn.

I have nothing on the needles at the moment except the pink cloud, but that can wait for another day. I finished the Dreams of Spring hat last night. Hmmmmmm, I don't think I like it. It's kind of big. I may block it and see what happens. Maybe I can find someone with a big head to give it to. It's really soft, and the pattern is nice, but I'm just not feeling the love.



I got a late Christmas gift last night! My sister came over and gave me these plates! OMG, aren't they cute! I just love little plates, and Snoopy and Woodstock are just so adoreable. I need to bake a cake or something so I have a nice little treat to eat on them.



So that's it for this time. Hope you're having a nice weekend!

I was wondering where you went and then I saw the purple bag! LOL!! I need to pop in on Bridget one day.

I LOVE ultra alpaca, it's one of my absolute fav yarns, super soft and holds it's shape.

I always tell myself "I will not buy anymore yarn until I use up some of what I already have" but to no avail~too tempting! LOL.
Beautiful kitty!
