Temptation. I think temptation affects everyone, don’t you? Maggie was a little tempted the other night (and she gave into it and ate that candy corn so fast!)
And today…well, today I was tempted. I thought that I would walk over to Seaport Yarn today at lunch – you know, just check out the place. No big deal – I’m on a yarn diet, after all. I would simply browse and then tell all of you about it. Unfortunately I couldn’t go – at the last minute I had a lunchtime conference call. So no temptation there – and it is probably a good thing since I have…ahem….a very weak will sometimes.
But then I got home…..and there was something waiting for me – a box from Finland! (can you believe how fast this came?)….
How gorgeous is this? I was drooling the minute I unwrapped it. Look at the picture! Look at the yarn! How cute!
But once I pulled out the yarn….wow – its gorgeous. Simply gorgeous. And all the more amazing when you realize that Leena dyes her yarn with only natural things – like mushrooms and cochineal (I’m not reading the whole Wiki on this because I really don’t want to know what it is). Honestly – if you resisted this the first time I mentioned it, you really need to go and buy a kit. It is amazing. Go – come on, go look now.
And so tempting…..what? What is that on top? Could that be DPN’s? Or is that temptation….
Have a great weekend! Maybe I’ll have a little bit of mitten to show you next time! And don’t forget – Sunday you get an extra hour of sleep – yea!
