Whoops! Looks like I couldn't resist joining Sandy's Saturday Sky club. All the cool kids are doing it ya know. I haven't done the sign-up for the blog ring yet but I wanted to start posting today.
What's this? Is the sky falling? Is there a new sunflower? No. You can probably guess where I got the inspiration for these two rovings that I dyed to finish up my spindle bag.
That sunflower roving was dyed when I dyed up two skeins of Evening Sun sock yarn in a new yarn that I'm considering as an upgrade. This yarn is Monty 3/9 100% Australian Merino yarn from Henry's Attic. Anybody else love this stuff? I think it's softer and smoother than the KnitPicks dye-your-own sock yarn.
If anybody is interested in purchasing a 100g skein for $20 each plus $2 shipping in the US or $7 shipping to Canada, these two (same dye lot if you're interested in both) are available to the first two people to email me requesting them. Otherwise they'll be going into my etsy shop on Monday morning at a higher price! BOTH SKEINS SOLD According to the YPP listed this is only 365 yds but I'm not so sure about that - the weight seems to be identical to the KnitPicks sock yarn which people have said is really not 440 yds/100g like KnitPicks claims - so I don't know what to tell ya about the yardage. I'll say it's at least 365 yds of incredibly soft great yarn the right weight to knit some super snuggly socks. :)
And finally a little something to make up for the shameful lack of baby photos for Eye Candy Friday yesterday.....
Looks like it's time to lower the crib mattress because Little Miss Lila Pearl is up on two feet!! She had her 9mo well child visit earlier this week and is now 19 pounds and is in the 55th percentile. I'm still trying to deal with "she's perfectly healthy, she's just not built like a basketball player". Every baby is different. Emeline was in the 100+ percentile for her height and weight at this age (and still is) but she wasn't even considering standing on two feet yet.
Everybody have a great weekend!
P.S. I did speak to our attorney yesterday and he said that he'll be finishing the motion this weekend and emailing me the documents to review on Monday so the filing will probably happen Tuesday and X will be served within the next few days after that - possibly as soon as Wednesday.
