These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things...

Really I just woke up with that song running through my head.  I must have had a good dream, I just love The Sound of Music.

...but I digress, this blog post is not about musicals.  Don't worry though, it's still exciting!

I know there are many of you who also read my sister's blog, but for those of you who don't, I'm really really really excited because (drum roll please...) she just recently opened up her own online yarn shop - Flocks of Yarn!  I've had to be all hush-hush about it for the past nine months, but I can finally mention it here and talk about how excited I am for her.

and get this, per my request, she has included a function in which you can search the yarn in her shop by color (!).  I will never buy the wrong color yarn again!  Thanks, sis!

Really though, and I know I'm a bit biased, but you should all check out her shop.  All of the yarn she carries is really nice, and I love her rewards program.  I was hoping to be her first customer, but someone else beat me to it.  Bummer.

Also exciting is that I finally sewed the zipper into my Brigade Pullover.  Here's proof:



Don't worry, I plan to take real pictures tomorrow.

  2. Zipper!! I agree with RowsRed; that is a sexy man model pose.

    I'm really excited for Clumsy and her new endeavor.

  10. Brigade does look awesome! I've suddenly become extremely jealous. Don't worry though, if you ever get bored of it, I'll accept it as a hand-me-down. Just keep that in mind.
