Haz Yarnz!

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.

Ooooh, you're getting a Segway! I've always thought those were so "you"! ;)

Your new yarn is very yummy. I looked at their website a few days ago and thought all the colors were pretty much winners. But here's my current hang-up: I won't buy yarn in hanks unless someone (like my LYS) will wind them into balls for me. I know some people find ball winding to be an integral part of the knitting process, but I just find it to be an obstacle between me and actually knitting. Maybe someday I'll change my mind...

I'd love to have a segway, but I'm not sure where I'd ride it around here.
I was like you, and refused to buy yarn in hanks until I got my swift and ball winder. It makes it so much easier!
