As you probably noticed I took the day off from blogging yesterday. I just didn’t have it in me to put together anything other than a negative, bitter and bitchy post.
So what’s a girl to do when she needs to lift her spirits? Shop, of course!
I probably don’t need to tell you all about the great deal going on at Elann for their Peruvian Collection Highland Wool. I know I’m on a yarn diet but I caved. Here’s what I got:
|0743 grape heather
to make mart
for paul for christmas
|0726 mid indigo heather
0744 harvest heather
for one of these designs
from adrienne vittadinni or debbie bliss
I noticed yesterday that Cascade 220 describes itself as 100% Peruvian Highland wool. Does anyone know if the Elann and Cascade yarns are the same? Both color palettes are extensive, but I haven’t felt the Elann one in person yet.
In addition to some quality knitting time, Paul and I have a few things planned this weekend. We’re doing dinner tonight at The Melting Pot. This was where we had our first date and we always have a wonderful time together. The dinners usually last around 3 hours and the booths let you sit close together and just enjoy the night. I’ve been looking forward to sitting close to my honey, sipping wine and enjoying a yummy dinner. Tomorrow we’re going to Lancaster County to do some apple picking. It’s supposed to be sunny and in the low 60s and it should be a perfect and relaxing day! I’m sure we’ll come home with plenty of apples and squashes and I’ll probably bake up something apple as well.
And one final jab at the election…
This correlation between IQ and voting pattern is funny, sad and scary all at the same time. Just further proof that Tim Russert’s comment about appealing to the public’s intellect doesn’t get you in office.
