Though most of my tax return is used for catching up on bills, I always try to buy at least a few fun things every year. The first thing I ordered was more Cherry Tree Hill Sockittome Select yarn from the closeout page.
They don't count as stash, you know. Plus, being on sale. How could I resist?
So, what did I get? I'll show you.
First up for your viewing pleasure: Peacock, Champlain Sunset, and Spring Frost.
And in this photo we have, Birches, Caribou Creek, Northern Lights, and Serengeti. I thought about going back and getting even more, but apparently, they are sold out -- of the closeouts, that is. But I've got quite a pile now, and just think of all the blankie squares I can knit from the leftovers!
I also got an e-mail telling me that my second tax return purchase shipped today. Woo Hoo! I can't wait to get it. I'm not going to tell you what it is. That would spoil the surprise, but here is a hint:
By the way, Vanessa said she saw TK at the store after work yesterday, and he was wearing his hat. I guess he really liked it. He wasn't at work today, so I'll have to tease him about it tomorrow. Oh, and I forgot to tell you...about The Other Rod's hat. See, his nickname is Hot Rod (and for good reason, too, but I won't get into that here...), and the name of the colorway from which I knit his hat is Hot Red. It just seemed appropriate.
More tax money spending to come! I'll keep you posted.
