I didn't put away any Christmas decorations, but I did clean out a cabinet where lo and behold I found a missing screw. It doesn't match the switch plate, but it's usually behind the china closet anyway. Here's the unrelated picture of the day:
I haven't been on a yarn diet (too hard at this sale time of year), so here are my recent yarn purchases.
First, a Christmas gift arrangement from work--marked down to 70% off. It's a wine tube (needle holder), a skein of Lion Brand Homespun (storing up for the next prayer shawl), and a pair of size 11 needles.
I bought a grab bag of yarn from Cherry Tree Hill. I've never tried this yarn before, so it will be fun.
On the left is Jumbo Loop--a bulky Mohair Boucle in Champagne, and on the right is Baby Loop--a light sport mohair boucle--water color.
I've never knit with either before (sorry-that was redundant. I guess if I've never tried this yarn then I've never knit with it either....). Maybe it'll be time to make a lace shawl.
Here's some more sale yarn--$1 yer skein.
Who doesn't need a stash of fancy fur?
