Tempting Sale Yarns
My LYS 3 Bags Full is having a sale this week. Isn't this tempting? This yarn looks to me like it came right out of Rumplestilskin. Shot in available light, my favorite light, I think it is a lovely sight. I didn't buy any. I did buy some yarn in cornflower blue and yellow for a baby blanket. The square I went right to in 200 Knitted Blocks, is called Patch. I will be making a baby blanket in Patch soon.
* A few more books for National Library Week that Al has enjoyed:
The Vacation: by Polly Horvath. For the 3rd or 4th grade set. She says it is a fun read.
THe Outlander: Diana Gabaldon. Al initially scoffed at this Romanace series. Then fell for it! A real page turner. She can't wait for the next one to come out over the summer.
Eat, Pray, Love: Elizabeth Gilbert. People complained that she was very egotistical and self-centered in this memoir, but Al appreciated her honesty. Great mediatation tips. Makes Al want to go to Italy and pig out.
Good Poems for Hard Times: Garrison Kellor ed. Nice mix of modern and classic. Getting her through this dreary grey Chicago season.
I'll see you in the comments. as Donna Boucher Quiet Life says. And I'll answer you in the comments.
