I bought this really pretty "blueberry" shade of Fiddlesticks Zephyr Laceweight wool/silk blend.
It is so soft. Maybe I'll get into lace sometime soon--my stash seems to have a rather large amount of laceweight yarn. You buy a little here, a little there....and suddenly you have 4000 meters of yarn looking neglected.
But I have an obligation to socks, too.
This is Fleece Artist Merino 2/6, and it could not be left behind all by its lonesome in the store. Especially not in those gorgeous green and blue colors.
Next post: all the yarn I got for FREE!
P.S. I can't believe Jaslene won ANTM! I don't remember feeling this disappointed about a winner since...well, ever. It's cool that she's the first Latina to win, I just find her obsession with being a model a little tiresome. Where is the backstory? What are her hobbies? When asked to portray four emotions, this is what she chose:
Okay, drag queen and cha cha diva are essentially the same thing. Sentimental? Or is it "boo boo on my shoulder"? Modelesque is not an emotion. It's not even a word. Except for Jaslene. I will grudgingly admit that she looks a lot like Janice Dickinson in these pictures (especially drag queen), which is AWESOME.
I guess I'm just disappointed that we weren't able to explore the life of a mail-order bride with Natasha. Here's looking at you, Nata.
I looooove the colors on that sock yarn!
My real thoughts behind Jaslene's "victory" involve ratings... and the huge %increase in the purchase of televisions amongst the ever increasing population of Spanish speaking viewers between the ages of 18-35 tuning in to the CW.
The only good picture I saw was the one with the military looking furry hat. The rest of the time she looked like a drag queen. Obsessed with her shortcomings and her voice was irritating to me too.
I would have voted for Renee and I bet you Renee will do a lot better in the commercial world than Jaslene.
