This was supposed to be a photo of the new spring colors of Panda Cotton. The nearest one (from memory, as Blogger and Picasa appearantly aren't speaking right now) is 'pinto pony', and I love it so much I'm ordering a whole bag of it. It's that cute. The upper left one is 'dotty circus' and I think that one is pretty darn cute, too. I just got the sample pack of the new colors, figuring I could reorder the totally fabulous ones. I have yet to actually knit a sock from it myself, so me and 'pinto pony' have some hanging out to do. My mom wants a pair, and there's all that travel knitting I'll be doing... kinda leaves me excuse-less.
Yesterday I got our rooms booked for the trip. We're staying here, because the b&bs in Wisconsin pretty much are just for lovers, not families with gaggles of children. In Iowa, we'll be here; we absorb all available space they have, but I was on the phone with Mr. Cat&Fiddle and he's a riot. We're going to get along fantastically. He's even laying in a supply of gin, white soda, and limes for Herr Becher. I think I'll have my photo taken on the terribly Victorian red velvet loveseat. How odd is that for furnishings? I know. I *lurve* it. And the violins hanging from the wall? (Behind the stairs. Sweet.)
Day two of zero store activity, so I'm going to use this time to get the "turning twenty" quilt going. Or something. No kids today... it's practically like a day off! Stay warm and crafty. C
(ignore the sacastic italics if my pics should happen to appear from Picasa later. If Melly was here I'm sure she could've gotten it going.)
