This is the other thing I got from Kpixie - it's Zen Yarn Gardens Tuxedo Royale (Dark). Yum. I love the combinatino of the pinks and the greys - I'm not usually a pink person, but this stuff is goooood.
And I have been tempted mightily by Chris, who slyly pointed out the new addiction initiative by the Socks That Rock people (or, as I like to call them, the Crack that Rocks people). I caved. Instantly. Interestingly, it turns out that it is possible to pay a PayPal invoice with your eyes almost entirely shut so as to avoid seeing the huge amount you just paid for sock yarn.
And, while we're on the topic, I have noticed an interesting quirk of our Customs service: on the rare occasion (HAH!) that I get yarn from overseas, if the sender marks the contents as 'yarn', it goes straight through to be delivered to me. If the sender marks the contents as 'wool', it gets sent to Customs and they open it and inspect it. Apparently an entire Australian Customs service has no idea that 'yarn' and 'wool' are in fact the same thing.
Good thing for the day: I no longer have to knit the Olympic Shawl.
Bad thing for the day: I now have no idea what to knit. My current projects all seem irretrievably boring, but I can't find a new project that doesn't suck. Oh well, off to the blogs for inspiration!
