Happy Freezing Saturday

Posted on: April 7, 2007

Edited 4/9/2007 to add what pattern I’m going to use with the yarn I bought – both were purchased from Jimmy Beans. 🙂

The high at this time of year here should be in the 50′ s but we’ll be lucky if we get out of the 20’s today. What in the world is going on? Brrr.

Anyway, I received my Jimmy Beans order in record time. Holy crap. I ordered on April 3rd and received it yesterday. Yeah, I know and only $4 shipping! The yarn I ordered is gorgeous and hubby is actually excited to get a pair of socks made from it. Trust me, he’s skeptical that socks handmade will stay up so he hasn’t encouraged me to make him a pair yet. Come on, dude, have faith in me – I won’t let you down. Or your socks.

Here is a pic of the yarn (it’s bulky weight, 478 yds per skein), he’s getting a pair made in the solid color and I’m doing a pair for me in the other. But not until late summer or early fall as his is a Christmas present and he’s really not going to need a heavy duty pair of socks at this time of year. (Though if these temps persist I may have to rethink that statement.)

I’ve added some information to my volunteer blog, see my sidebar. Any suggestions or comments feel free to leave them there. More information will be added in the coming week or so but I wanted to get something out there so you know it’s an active blog. 🙂

Enjoy your weekend, everyone.
