Shoes and Yarn

This blog is dedicated to my search for the perfect shoes and the perfect yarn.

Okay, first the winner of my birthday contest. is Jenn!! Yeah! I'll get the yarn in the mail when I can go to the post office. Hurrah!!

Vegas was fabulous. The weather was beautiful. We walked like a 100 miles between all of the casinos. We had good food. We saw the fabulous Bette Midler! And, best of all, I relaxed!!! Yeah!!! When I got home, my brother and sister-in-law took me out to dinner. It was a fantastic birthday.

Throughout the rest of the week, I got little tags on my door because I had packages at the apartment office (darn thing closes at 5pm and who can get there by then???) Today, I finally got the the apartment office and picked everything up.

Yippee. I got sock yarn from my fabulous knitty friends in Kansas City.
It's Heritage Handpainted sock yarn from Cascade. It feels super yummy and in person, looks more purple than blue like in the picture. Thank you!!! I would just like to say though, where's my chocolate??? That card was just cruel.
I also got Free Range Knitter, the latest Yarn Harlot book from Beth. Thank you! Thank you! I've already read half of it. :-)
I got another package as well, but it was clothes I ordered and wonder of all wonders, everything fit and looked cute. So all around a great package day.
Thanks everyone for my birthday wishes and cards. I love you and and miss my St. Louis and Kansas City and Cincinnati frinds a lot.

    Yeah! I never win anything!!!!!!! I promise to make something great with it.

    Sounds like you had a great birthday - I'm glad you got a chance to relax because you needed it. I'm heading to Vegae in March for a work/fun trip, we should talk about what to do/not do while there.

    Congrats, Jenn. Also, I'm almost finished with Free Range Knitter and I've had to read bits of it to my hubby to explain why I was laughing out loud. Love it!! Enjoy!
