More New Yarn!
That's a cute little ball of Debbie Bliss Merino Chunky who has managed to escape from its bag. And look - it has many, many friends!
Yes, folks, that's three (count 'em) bags of Merino Chunky that I got on garage sale for $3/ball at WEBS. Now that's a good deal! I'm going to swatch for Josephine one of these days, but if they don't work for that, they certainly won't go to waste!
I also got a couple balls of Cascade Sassy Stripes for some funky socks:
And, to top off my day of blantant consumerism, my husband brought me home a new cell phone last night.
It's a Motorola RAZR, the latest in gadgety gadgets on which my husband had to lay his hands. He got one for himself, too, but in black. This is the third set of matching cell phones that we've had. I didn't really need something this high-tech, but who was I to break the pattern? It has a zoom camera in it, so I might try to see if it will take better close-ups of stitch patterns than my regular camera. This head of mine? Not just a hat rack...
Check out how thin this sucker is:
It's kind of masculine (definitely a gadget guy's phone), but I think I'll like it fine. Most of all, I'll like finally having a Portland phone number! It got old having people call long-distance to get ahold of us on our cells. Now I have to go through the torture of calling Sprint and canceling our other phones. I'd rather pull my own fingernails out with a pair of pliers. Maybe I'll make my hubby do it as penance for buying us such expensive new phones. Between my yarn and his gadgets, I'm quite certain we're teetering on the brink of bankruptcy.
