Yippeeeeeeeee!!! (sorta.)

Another rough day at work today (though thankfully the boss was not mad at me), I got home (at 7:35 pm, but I digress) to find this:


My first STR shipment! (That is my knitting chair it's sitting on, BTW.)


The lovely binder...


Bumper sticker (I never use bumper stickers, but I am tempted by this one.)


Blurry photo of a button pin.


YARN!!! The colorway is called "Monsoon". I can't wait to work with it.


Another blurry photo - this time of an emergency sock yarn keychain. Is that cute or what? But clearly, I suck at photography.

Anyway - I dug into the binder and looked at this month's pattern. It is a toe-up, requiring a crochet chain cast-on. What this means is that I'm going to need help (I couldn't make a crochet chain if someone had a gun to my head), and will not be able to start the sock before my trip - as the person who would help me is on vacation for another week.

I'm now pondering some fingerless gloves for the flight.

I am looking for teddy bears, cause I am learning to use my sewing machine. And we are going to be sewing some stuff for the wedding based on bears. :)
