The present parade made a prize delivery to my door last week! I won Kirsten's blogiversary/comment contest at Through The Loops!
Isn't that a cheerful package? I shared the Pocky chocolates (loved them -- not too sweet) and also (but more begrudgingly) the MarieBelle Chocolates -- oooh, they were wonderful! And yarn! My first Malabrigo -- Kettle Dyed Pure Merino Worsted -- my picture is terrible, it's #224-Autumn Forest (bottom row).
Thanks to all my Ravel(ry)-rousing of late, I already have some ideas about what I can do with that yarn. That's one of the Ravelry features I can see myself using frequently -- I have this many hanks of that kind of yarn and here's what can be done -- provided all of the information regarding projects and patterns is complete, of course.
It was another slow weekend in Squaresville and I've run out of one of my colors... to substitute another or punt with what I've got is the question of the day. Check out the Larger Than Life CAL!
*Contrary to the popular belief of Ann, my oversight regarding whether it's a parade or a patrol delivering presents or prizes is not as a result of my skimming -- though I do skim, I always have and always will, and I am not ashamed -- but merely my memory having Cease(d) and Desiste(d).
I also have a chance to say, "Thank You" to Kirsten, which of course I already did personally, but here again, too.
