could this day bet any better?

There's a Doris Day movie on and my first yarn order is drying and otherwise ready to go out the door. I love Doris Day.

Now I know Darlene is going to peek, so believe me I seriously debated on whether or not I was going to post the surprise pics. I guess if she wants to see, then she can see!

She's getting two skeins of the yarn below: Garbage can party. That yarn is handspun from the same colorway, but the yarn she is getting will look much like the photo. She's also getting a sneak peek at the new Socktails line by Carpe Dye-Em

Cherry Fizz:

4 Pts Kirschwasser
1 pt fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp bar sugar
sparkling water
maraschino cherry

Combine all ingredients, except water and cherry in a cocktail shaker with cracked ice. Shake well. Strain over ice cubes into a chilled collins glass. Fill with sparkling water and stir gently. Garnish with cherry.



Emerald Isle Cocktail

5 Parts Gin (2.5 oz)
Green Creme de Menthe (2 tsp)
3 dashes Angostura bitters
Green Maraschino Cherry

Stir liquid ingredients in a mixing glass with cracked ice. Strain into chilled cocktail glass and garnish with cherry.


I haven't photographed the Garbage Can Party Skeins yet as they are still drying, but I will grab a few photos before they go.

Its weird. I think they turned out so beautiful I kinda wanna keep them and I've never sent away anything I've made before (well except Pluggo's alpaca sock) so it feels kind of funny. Like if she hates them I will feel kind of awful!

I will be making more of these colorways because I love em! In fact I have another yarn order in for more bare stuff.

  1. Those are beautiful. I would knit with them both in a half a heartbeat.

  2. GUESS WHAT!! I was a GOOD GIRL!! I didn't peek, and I am so happy that I didn't -- not that the photos aren't ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS -- but they do not even begin to compare to what the actual YARN looks like! They arrived today and I could not be more pleased!!!

    OMG -- you are a color GENIUS! I honestly do feel that Noro's got nothing on you -- PLUS, the yarn base is awesome!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!! You have made me a very happy yarn-a-holic ;)


I can't figure out how to respond to comments because blogger is funkay. Thanks for leaving one anyway!
