Now, I have to say that I thought this was a really odd Blogstalking theme - in a million years I would never have thought I needed to take a picture of my bathroom cabinet... but here you go:
Be honest - how many of you cleaned up your cabinet before you took the picture? I did. I also turned the packages around so you could actually see what is in there. Nothing terribly spectacular or scandalous, I'm afraid (that's all in the en suite bathroom cabinet!), but you will notice that there isn't much on the top shelf... and that is because I am only just about 5 feet tall on a good day with thick socks and can't reach the bloody top shelf! The two prescription bottles there? Both mine - one from the multiple conjunctivitis bouts I've had due to Willow's daycare and the second from the time I threw out my back.
And now for the fun stuff... It seems that every time we go to the beach it is Sunday, and that means the lone knitting store in Rehoboth Beach - Knitty Gritty - is closed. But we went down on Sunday this time (yeah, I had a hand in that!). It was interesting - I wouldn't say they have the selection of the other two LYS around here (Garden of Yarn and Stitches With Style), but they did have some yarns that I have never seen before, like this stuff called 'Autumna':
Don't they look just like the little pumpkin?!?!! They are 100% merino and are sooooooooooo soft. There is just shy of 200 yards altogether and I'm trying to think what I want out of them.
My second purchase is for Willow:
See the striped hat in the lower right corner? About the only one you can make out because of my wonky flash? I'm going to make that balakava hat for Willow (non-striped because I don't do that if I can help it!) in this Encore DK - and the colour is much more aqua in real life - not so much ordinary blue.
