Booty Call

Ok I had some tea (Adagio opus pouchong with just a pinch of pumpkin spice - my current fave home brew) some soup and a shot of niquil then spent most of the afternoon watching Japanese soap operas and Helen of Troy on PBS( - The one thing I think I would miss more than anything else if I moved out of NYC would be all the foreign TV channels - I love subtitles!)now I am ready to play show and tell on my Rhinebeck score.

First up this is the bootie bag from the Yarn Tree:

I also picked up these Image hosted by Photobucket.com I won a contest on Norma's blog once and she sent me this soap - it was love at first whiff. I bought a few for me and to send to my SP's.

Harmony, gee I really love you
and I want to love you forever
and dream of never, never
leaving harmony

1000 yards of Brooks Farms Harmony.
I have a specific idea in mind for this yarn - I actually went looking for a soft, beautiful, shiny yarn and I found true love in this mohair, wool and silk blend.

There, not too much, but what there is - is choice!

Of course I'm interested! I love the bag!
The Brooks Farm is gorgeous. The second skien you show maybe the exact colors I bought in Estes. I'm thinking of a nice big shawl, too.
