Serious Drool Factor Ahead - Caution!

Thank you all for your encouragement over my first week's less than exciting outcome at the weigh-in last night! I know you're right.

After PT tonight (it just never ends, ya know?) I headed to a grocery I don't normally frequent (tho' I guess I will be more often now that my dearest, favorit-est Ukrops is closing (SOB!!!) and picked up these:

I dare you. (to try them, but not to say what that photo appears to be - it's almonds!)

They're Emerald's Cocoa Roasted Almonds. I adore almonds. And these are wonderful. For 3 points. With protein. And all the good stuff almonds just naturally have.

I think I've died and gone to heaven...

OK. There's more. I saved the best for last. If you're a knitter that is.

Art Walk Sock Yarn Club's September 2009 edition (I got the October edition, too, and it's yummy, but I can't share that yet, or I'll be a spoiler. Everyone's already gotten September. When I saw it? I asked Roxie if she had any left.

I know you know why, right? Black, purple/plum, and a bright royal blue. Oh I can't decide. Will these be plain vanilla (which shows off the sock yarn itself the best) or will I go ahead and do Feather and Fan on the cuff? The nice part? I don't have to decide till I've turned the heel!

I know. You've gone for tissue to wipe off the drool, now haven't you? (Ask me how I know?) hahahahaha!

I have been so impressed by Carol Sulcoski's Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn. She talks a lot about how the yarn colors change and what patterns will play well with handpainted yarns. The short summary: the more the yarn pools, the more you need a pattern to break up the color overlap.

It will be interesting to see how this yarn emerges as a sock.

Pretty yarnz!

Almonds! Ha. I hadn't a clue.

I love that fairy fabric! So cute.

Congrats on the weight loss! The slower the better, they say. (And I'm sure they're right.)

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.
