Freaky Friday

Now, what could this be???

Hmmm... it appears to contain yarn of some sort....

Oh, look! Two skeins of Artyarns Supermerino!

And also there was some gorgeous Zen Yarn Gardens sock yarn from Kpixie - but y'all wouldn't be interested in that, would you?

Well, maybe I'll post that picture tomorrow.... maybe......

WARNING: Todays Freaky Friday link is NOT work safe or kid safe. It requires sound. It requires a strong stomach. It contains FREQUENT HIGH LEVEL COARSE LANGUAGE. You have been warned.

I have bowed to the inevitable. I am taking a half day off work today in order to give myself a fighting chance of finishing this shawl. Twenty two rows left might not sound like much, but each row is now over four hundred stitches. Whimper. And I'm not doing the crochet castoff! I'll sort out my own cast off! So there! BWAHAHAHHAHA!

Oh. Perhaps the pressure is getting to me more than I thought......

Good thing for the day: Chris is sending me a package containing weird stuff she's never seen before. Excellent!!!
Bad thing for the day: It's going to be HOT today. So why the HELL am I leaving my airconditioned office in the hottest part of the day to go home and knit on a lapful of wool???? I swear, I deserve an extra medal for this.

You have air con at home! You'll have to knit in front of that :-)

Purty yarn. Please, nice lady, can we see the Zen Yarn Gardens sock yarn?

Yep, I didn't manage to book tomorrow afternoon off and I'm thinking that Saturday night maybe a sleepless one! So coffee and Tim Tams will be consumed in bulk :)

Dammit Chris! You know I'm a total pushover for sock yarn! I've sent the nice German lady an email enquiry. "Ooooooh, pretty!!!" is warring with "Hello, budget!". Gosh, I wonder which one will win.....

Check out this picture. Is it sad that my first thought wasn't "Whoa, that person should probably get some help with that sock yarn problem" - it was jealousy?

The whole world is against me! I give in, I'll buy more sock yarn!
And Chris, just to taunt you, I'm going to post links to some Australian wineries, which produce the two best pinot noirs I've ever tasted, and one that produces a multi award-winning chardonnay. So there.

Damn. That sure backfired.
