LOOKIE LOOKIE at what I just got in the mail today!! :cheering: :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:
I must say that I just :heart: :inlove: :heart: KP's palette yarn :D I was well stocked for my sock sabbatical...now I am VERY well stocked :D
YIPPEE :cheering: :cheering: :cheering: YIPPEE :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:
I have 6 nice lace patterns for this, a couple of textural manly socks for Lonnie and 2 of the coolest pair of socks using black, one with various colors of bobble and another with a 'stained glass' effect from variegated yarn with the black....most all are from the book that Lonnie got me, "Socks, Socks, Socks" and a couple for him from another book that he got for me "Knit Socks"......oh....such FUN to be had :D :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:
You can actually see the socks that I am knitting for Lonnie here (http://www.knitpicks.com/books/books_display.aspx?itemid=30540#); the pair on the top left of the 1st and 2nd pages :D

Sorry about the emoticon junkie thing...I'm well known for my addiction to :XX: :happydance: :rollseyes: :shock: :?? :D them all....and, I'm also known to be the emoticon dealer/pusher 8-) ...the one who gets u hooked to emoticons... :thumbsup:
Here's (http://www.knitpicks.com/books/books_display.aspx?itemid=30580) a bit of a look of my fave sock book from my Sweetie, 'Socks, Socks, Socks'....an AMAZING selection...much, much more than you see, but, u get a peek, any way ;)

KK, I am in a GLORIOUS mood...you are so correct :thumbsup:

I'm off to knit Allysa's socks....I knit for her today & tomorrow...it is all shipped Monday...these socks are probably the last bit..thought of a quick scarf, but don't know if I have the time.... :thinking: hmmmm, one never knows, tho ;)

IMHO There is no such thing as too much sock yarn or too much chocolate!

:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

You're kidding me right??

NO such thing as too much *good quality* chocolate!!! I'm a bit of a chocolate snob.. :D Has to be good quality 60%+ dark chocolate for me.. :D 99% is great with espresso or turkish coffee :D

A bad coffee is terrible.. just like stewed tea <blergh>

I have an espresso machine at home, so bad coffee is never a problem... and I only buy good loose leaf tea, and brew it according to its leaf. If you're ever at my place.. you'll only get good coffee or good tea... alongside good chocolate and home made shortbread :D

Oh sure! We'll be right over. How long does it get to go to Australia? How much would it cost? That coffee better be extraordinarily good!!!! :lol:
