I got to see my best friend for a little while yesterday and it's made me all happy and shit. Don't worry. I should be back to hating the world again by mid-afternoon tomorrow.
At one point, we were each holding a skein of the same yarn (in different colorways). I read part of the label to her and said something that only she would understand.
"I get it, but I don't get it.
The label claimed the yarn was "mothproof", and while I do understand what that means, I don't really understand what it means in terms of how one "mothproofs" yarn. What did they do to the yarn? How was it mothproofed? Thankfully, we've known each other forever and she understood.
There aren't a lot of people who speak my brand of dork, ya know.
Her favorite holiday/time of year is Halloween. I think that may have had a little something to do with this very cool reusable bag she gave me. I have no idea where she got it, but I'm guessing somewhere on etsy if I have to make a guess.
Not only was there the really cute bag, but the bag was stuffed with stuff!
This is from Tempted. It's a Merino (80%) Silk (20%) blend in the colorway Bordello. Who doesn't love that name?
And this is from DragonFibers. It's a Merino (60%) Bamboo (40%) blend. It has more crimp than the other bamboo blend I tried to spin and I have high hopes to be able to actually spin this one. The colorway is called Party Dress and it may not be what the photo is showing.
It's still my blog, ya know. Photo issues are a given.
Don't judge me.
There may have been yarn, candy, a severed plastic finger and some fabulous lavender goodies, but I have to hold something back for later, right? I mean, I've been working on Lyra for over a month now with no end in sight.
Plus I suck and shit.
Not that it's news. :p
Oh, and I also love that's currently harvest and that there is so much going on as we all get ready for winter. I even sort of love seeing all the squirrels running around.
When I'm not in the car. 0.o
I hope your Monday has some love and candy in it.
