Well, obviously I thought I was getting a large Thanksgiving bonus instead of the very generous Acme Grocery card I received from my company. The following are the results of my OCD yarn problems. The only items I have remaining on order are a total impulse purchase from Herschnerrs of some yummy looking Debbie Bliss Cotton for tank top, and some needles from Miss Carol to knit it up.

Especially of note, I am showing are the absolutely fabulous things feministmama sent. I honestly had tears in my eyes. Such good karma that lady deserves! What a sweetheart! One problem -well, two. First problem, is this-----Femmy, we NEED your last name! Oh yes indeed we do! Second problem is, (and this is a funny, more than a problem), you all have seen pictures of my beautiful Cooper and heard how he loves to snort the yarn, well, not only did he want to snort that beautiful pink sock yarn, but he wanted to take it and have it for his very own socks, I guess! There is something about that yarn that is making him very feisty!!!!

Without further ado, here are my pictures:
