Random silliness

So I took the How I Met Your Mom - Which character are you quiz on and these are my results. ;) hehe

Which How I Met Your Mother Character Are You?

More on How I Met Your Mother. Created by BuddyTV

In knitting and such I have one sleeve added to Keira's b-day dress and cast on the other today. Got a pre-birthday package from Amy. :) I got my Weasley's Wizard Wheezes in the mail and the J. Knits that I have been drooling over ever since she bought it last year. I'll post pics tomorrow once I have charged batteries in the camera or more time to take them. :)

For today and in my mailbox yesterday! YAY

I took pics just a few minutes ago because the kids have been all over the place this weekend already! J went to a girl scout pool badge event and ended up spending the night at a friends house after a playdate with her. Picked her up this morning and found out it was the first sleepover that had been hosted at the girl's house before - J was very well behaved. So glad to hear it! Miss emo-pants B comes back from her overnight with her troop this afternoon. Let's see how well she did and how clingy she will be when she gets home.

Now to the Sunshine-y goodness!

I ordered some Harry Potter inspired yarns this update (woot!) and one is a different base that is going to Amy in trade for her's in Twist base.

Secret Pal finale

Today I got a surprise, I knew my Sunshine Yarns order would be in the mail today, when my mailman knocked at the door and there was a box it stumped me at first. 1) I'd only ordered 4 skeins and 2) I didn't even bother to look at the label but was wondering why my yarn order was so heavy. Come to find out the lovely Bobbi sent me my final box after having moved. :) It was jam packed full with all sorts of goodies. As you can see below I got some Claudia Hand Painted Yarns Cotton Ball in Passion fruit, "Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon, EZ's Knitter's Almanac, Fit from Within, yummy Lindt Lamm chocolates, a super cool Interweave knits tote with a Franklin Habit drawing on it, a book mark, 52 rainy day activity cards, some cute tissues, a sheep coin purse or small notions holder, a sheep pez dispenser, a sheep magnet, a sheep mini memo pad & pen, a sheep list notepad, sheep notecards, and a sheep daily memo pad. Thank you Bobbi I love it all!

Yarns! VERRRY picture heavy sry.......

I had to look at my blog to see what had indeed been posted already. All my new rovings were posted so now it's all just the new yarns from Sunshine Yarns and a few others as well. I bought a crap ton of cotton yarn from Meijer a while back. What it was on sale and I do have a plan for it. The women's fall retreat with my home church I am doing a workshop and teaching knitting dishcloths. All the completed dishclothes go to be sold at the Great Lakes Christian Home.

I bought some Cotton Fleece on ravelry. In Cavern and Charcoal.
