So I just have to do a bit of bragging.
I got the greatest pressies.....
My mom bought me the New Pathways for Sock Knitters book by Cat Bordhi. I had looked through it a few times, but was waiting to buy it. I can't wait to start the Coreolis socks. However, even more pressing, are the Ocean-Toes. I liked them well enough, but really, OMG I have a wondrous yarn in mind... In my b-day card, mom left me $20 for yarn to go with my book. You all know the extent of my sock yarn stash. (It has recently called to be moved to yet a larger bin!) But I could not resist. 
I clicked an ad on Ravelry because I was intrigued by the name - Sanguine Gryphon. Well, up pops this beautifully dyed yarn and roving. I figured, what better way to spend my bday money! and then I saw it!!! It was, well, exactly what I wanted, yes, the Little Traveller Superwash Merino Sock Yarn that I mentioned the other day. IT'S HERE ALREADY! AND SOOOOO SOFT! and SQUISHY! and the colors match my scarf and wooly exactly!!!! When I opened the box, I was (almost) without words.  there was a little note inside as well. "it was inspired by a beautiful photo of dusk over a Scottish lake." 

i'd put up new pics, but they won't transfer from my new camera.... have i said yet how much i'm NOT liking this camera...
