Hi everyone, I had spent some time yesterday and today preparing my post, but I couldn't get my "crafty girls" font. So I deleted it. Now I'm starting over. oh, you may be wondering why all the festivities today? Well, my sweet friend Parsley over at Seasons of My Mind is have a crazy sock party :) :) When I read about this, I immediately knew this was for me :) Click here to pay Parsley a visit. Let her know that I sent you.
This is a sock yarn from a company called Noro. They are based in Japan and have such a wide variety of colorful and variegated yarns. It really is amazing. This particular sock yarn line is called "Kureyon" It looks a bit like the colors of punch or food dye. That's okay. Once in awhile I need some serious doses of color in my life :)
These are the socks from my perspective. Each sock was knit slightly different. It was definitely not what I intended at first. however, the end result is still a lot of fun :) :) I'm standing on top of my down comforter that I purchased at the thrift store. The carpet in my apartment is what I affectionately call "pooh brown"..sorry, there's no other word for it :) :) You wouldn't have been able to see the bright colors :) Yes, yes , it's true...I'm wearing electric purple velour pants. Very wild. My dad says anyone can find me in the dark if I wear these. That's fine with me. It makes me laugh and they are comfy.
I hope you had fun today at my crazy sock party :) :) Oh, I e-filed my taxes last Friday. My federal tax return came today!!!! So I'm going to help my dad pay a couple of bills, getting a long overdue cut/color, brow wax and maybe a new piece of clothing :) :) Thanks for visiting me.
Oh, and I've noticed the new followers, too :) :) Welcome to my blog. Please, please, let me know how you found me. I'd love to know where all my visitors come from :) :) That's the news from Oregon today. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)
