Manise sent me a very early birthday present last week. The book is lovely and our Manise is just fabulous.
(Thank you, Manise!)
The yarn is from that spinning kit I bought over the summer. That little skein is 0.4 of an ounce and it's 82 yards long. It is 2-ply yarn that is one ply spun on a spindle, one ply spun on a wheel and spindle plied. The colorway is Ophelia, the fiber is Merino/Tencel and I love it. The colorway is wonderful and merino/tencel is a joy to spin on a spindle or on a wheel.
I also love that I have more merino/tencel in the fiber stash. :D
I gave in to the Drew Barrymore ads for Covergirl's Outlast Double LipShine and looked at it on a recent trip to the drug store. While I don't love the color choices, I did find one I could live with and the idea of not having to reapply all day long made me happy. After a couple of weeks, I can honestly say that it's a love. The gloss is a bit porn star when you put it on and, yes, I do blot after applying the color, but overall, it does what it says it will and that makes me happy.
We don't get a lot of that in life, ya know.
& No, I am not getting anything for saying I love anything.
Although, I'm not above it, either. ;^)
Can you tell it's raining and I'm all happy/relieved? Because it is and I am.
