"But Joe, honey, it'd only be for a few days."

"I can't hear you, I'm reading the paper..."
"I don't complain when *your* in laws come to town!"


Well, i think we can leave them be.


"Nice day, mister."

Hey, we have SUN, actual nice SUN! But wow, look at that yarn! Talk about PURPLE! Koigu KPM in colour 3000. It is destined for a pair of socks soon.

Also, Laminaria!
I've gotten though 6 of the 8 blossom repeats, but I think I will likely add a few more repeats to add size, since I'm using smaller needles than I should have.

Yum, unblocked lace.

Have a good day, and I hope spring has arrived wherever you are!

I love the purple... and I might need a green shawl....

(I think you like the little people a little too much!) :)

My Koigu is purple too, but more lavendery than the one you chose.

Shawl looks fab, nothing beats unblocked lace.

Well maybe blocked lace beats ublocked lace... :)

Oh hunny. That purple is gorgeous. Fondle worthy if I have ever seen the likes. Love the Laminara.

The little people are fantastic. I don't blame them for setting up shop in the purple, that yarn looks wonderful in the sun.

Hope you get a chance to go out and enjoy the good weather.
