Surprises!

OK, this first one is a not so good one. I was hanging this photo back up in my living room

because I had taken it down to hang Christmas decorations. Yes, I know it's February, and that February is nearly over, but that's beside the point. I was hanging the picture back up when the back fell out of the frame. The photo fell out and the glass fell right on my toe.

I'm just glad that the glass wasn't real glass, or it might have cut my toe badly. As it was, I ended up with a pretty good bruise.

That was Saturday. Yes, I'm that far behind. But I couldn't wait to show you this stuff I got in the mail today! First up, some yarn scraps for the blankie from my buddy Kristine.

Knowing that I'm also a Dallas Cowboy fan, she sent me a postcard of, yes, Heinz Field. She said she thought I'd appreciate it.

Yeah. But since she sent me blankie yarn, I'll let it slide. Just this once. The second package was even better. It was from blog buddy Opal. She's so sweet.

Yes, those are Dallas Cowboy earrings, and macadamia kisses. Thanks Opal!! I love them!

Onward...

The other day, I showed you I'd wound my Knit Picks Imagination in Gingerbread House. Well, this isn't it. This is Knit Picks Imagination in Pixie Dust. I don't know why I cast on with this instead, but there it is.


The pattern is Bubble Wrap by Sockbug. I'd knit this pattern before, and thought it would be good for this yarn. As I said, this yarn is very loosely spun and will likely fuzz out any complex pattern. This one is simple, without being plain.

Lou, I've been knitting for 10 years now. It didn't always look this good!

Opal, Boo is right, especially to Heinz field. Even if I were a Steelers fan, I'd still boo Heinz field. Who wants to play in a stadium named after ketchup?
