Way overdue THANK YOU to my Knitty SP8

Yarnnut - she's my very own special pal from the knittyhead coffeeshop....and it is her job to spoil me. Dang she is doing a GREAT job. Look what was in my second package.

Yup that is 2 skeins of Zepher laceweight [I have already cast on for a lace shawl -- put on hold for a bit, cause right now I need mindless knitting -- but I hope to get back to it this weekend] And see that white bear. It is just the cutest tape measure and she didn't even know that I am t.bear in a former life [nickname from college days - and that t didn't stand for teddy either]. Very nice stitch markers, which I used right away on the cast-on shawl. Now I just need the RIGHT home for the "Knitting is Knotty" bumper sticker.

So once more Yarnnut -THANKS. you are the bestest

Yarn Picnic at the Homestead

Tis "Flash your Stash" time and I realize that I actually have a small stash. I thought, since it was such a beautiful day, that nice outdoor shots would be best. In addition to my knitting I have my antique tractors. What better place to show off the yarn than on my favorite Cub Tractor. -------
-------- and a few close ups ------

Hope you enjoyed my little day at the homestead

edited to add - No yarn was harmed during the picnic. I have well behaved tractors
