Stash Enhancement eXpedition! Well...ok Not SEX

Have fun with that title Google!

I decided it was time to pick up the yarn for my planned scarf for the Red Scarf Project 2007 in conjunction with the Orphan Foundation of America. I'd already thought I'd participate this year, then Catherine and Deb both mentioned it on their blogs, and I figured I'd better let my readers know about it, too! (Oh! Deb's having a birthday contest, too, so go check that out...yes, I'll wait, but hurry back!) So in the neat basket I found at Wal-Market this afternoon (neatly lined and with leather handles!!!), you'll see two bits of yarny goodness - Lion Brand Wool-ease Thick and Quick in a wonderful burgundy, and then that's Peace Fleece in the Moscow Magic pink colorway - two skeins from Kary!

It's destined for hats - don't you just love that pink-flecky goodness?

I have to tell you, it's been a long time since Knitnana spent an afternoon shopping for the fun of it. (Yes, I shop for fabrics all the time, and it's fun, but that's not quite the same thing...) I'm still really tired, but I'm also feeling a strong need to "nest" - so one of the fun things I did was to buy some silk sunflowers to add to arrangements on the front door and on the dining room table, to welcome the change of seasons...I don't just want to knit, now I want Autumn to appear!!

ARGH! You do this to me every single time! Now I have another thing I want to participate in!! "So Adelle goes and puts another button on her participation blogroll!" I have resorted to talking about myself in the third person!!

I am with you. I have had enough summer to last me awhile. Between weeks on end of over 100 degree weather and a forest fire that got 1/2 mile from my front door (and I'm here to tell you that is too darn close) I have had enough. I need red and gold leaves, crispy mornings, and that wonderful hint of fall in the air.

Love the title btw. I wonder what Google will do with it. We always have Google to play with don't we?

Love the yarn and the basket. :) Now I have to get red or pink or something yarn for this project. (I'm going to hunt you down and put a moratorium on what you participate in because it directly affects me!!)

Hey, did you know I took over the "Cover Your Head" hatalong? Come on over and join us!!

WOW! Google will have a time with this title. : )

I love the pink yummy! I'm sure it will make wonderful hats and keep many little noggins warm.

Yep, I'm ready for fall, too!

Wow, that pink yarn is amazing!!! Love the color. I am always in awe of all that you you sleep btw LOL!!! Wish that wasn't a necessity, cuts into crafting time toooooo much.

The Mitz says she read your post and wanted you to see this one, I wrote today. One good turn deserves another.

Cheers, G and M

I can relate to that nesting feeling, since the weather started changing I have been feeling the same way and did a bit of fun shopping for fall clothes and things the house needed this weekend. I just love the pale and pretty Peace Fleece.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
