After a very long and exhausting week at work, I make my way home and find this in a box sitting on my doorstep.
TISA made its way to me from the great nation of Canada on its journey around the world in the Truly International Sock KAL And with it comes some yummy goodies from Pixie Riot ! She sure knows how to spoil a girl :-)
This is a skein of her own hand-dyed "Wash-Me Sock" yarn in her awesome colourway "Girls Talk" ! I wish that I could express to you how soft this is.
She also sent me three skeins of Sean Sheep Wool. I have never seen this stuff before but it is so cool! I can't wait to try it out!
And if that wasn't enough, she sent me some darning needles( which I always need because I lose them) and the cute little zip clip! I don't know where she found it but it is just the cutest little thing :-) Thanks Ms. Pixie!

It seems like every time that I turn the news on, I hear another weather report saying "8-12 inches overnight" UGH! I hate driving in it but it sure is pretty to look at :-)
I went to Connecticut last weekend with my DH to meet up with his parents and we went to Cabela's, which you need to see if you haven't already. It is a hunting, fishing, sporting goods mecca, but what I find appealing is the Conservation Mountain and other related displays. This is just a small sample of what this store has to offer to occupy your mind if you do not want to shop.
The displays are amazing! I have been to two different stores and they both are that attentive to detail. It is a joy to go there :-)
