Crazy Day

I have so much to cram into one day that I don't know where to begin. So, since I'm so undecided, I'm going to blog instead of digging into the important stuff. I totally forgot that I invited a friend for lunch (for doing me a huge favor) and I am dressed way too far down for that restaurant. So, I will have to stop at the house and put something more presentable on before lunch. I had a suit in my hand this morning and decided not to wear it. Figures.

I ordered some "socks that rock" yarn yesterday in the colorway below. It's called "County Clare". How could I NOT buy that colorway??? I loved County Clare. I am not happy with the "socks that rock" people after the stunt they pulled at Maryland Sheep and Wool but I did want to compare this yarn with Koigu and I thought... what better time to try it than now? I think I will work with them both at the same time and decide which is better. Just for fun.





















I have one Koigu shorty sock almost finished. I don't think there is going to be enough left from that skein to make a baby sock which is a bummer. I'm going to try but I'm not optimistic.

Tomorrow is a trip to Slippery Rock to try to find Cate an apartment for next year. We're meeting up with Yvonne and (hopefully) Jane in Butler. If anyone else wants to do lunch, let us know! I don't get west very often!

that is seriously gorgeous yarn. from whom did you order it? we honeymooned in county limerick, didn't make it to county clare, but wow--what gorgeous countryside. that yarn really captures the colors beautifully!
wish i could meet up with y'all tomorrow. i'm trying to drive my car as little as possible until we replace it in a few weeks, though--it's so on its last legs :( and i don't want to push my luck! have fun, though!

What a beautiful colorway! I'll be interested to hear your assessment of the yarn and how it compares to Koigu. I've got the Koigu, but have heard so much about STR.

Good luck with the apartment hunt. As an undergrad and now as I post-baccalaureate student at SRU, I never lived in Slippery Rock, but I am sure you will find soemthing great.

Gorgeous yarn! I've been coveting some Socks that Rock after reading about it on so many blogs (you know, because I don't have enough sock yarn stockpiled as it is). I can't wait to hear what you think of it!
