Not sure if I’ve ever mentioned this, but I have the worst luck in the world. I never win anything. Ever. Wasn’t getting smacked with a mud flap on I-90 proof enough that I should never leave the house without several good luck charms hanging about my person? I mean, what are the odds?

Earlier this month I participated in Karen’s FO – along. I admit I killed two birds with one stone with my FO – not only did I complete the FO-along but I got my ‘F’ for the sock-a-month-along ;o) The best part, though? I WON something! I know! Holy Crap! Karen had a drawing from all the participants and the Goddess was smiling upon me that day ;o) I received my loot today – and trust me, I needed the pick-me-up. Wanna see what I won? (I WON! hee!)

I love the colors! There’s two skeins of Noro Silk Garden (not sure the color number, and I’m in bed, they’re in the kitchen. Sorry but I’m not getting up, not even for you guys), two skeins of KnitPicks Shadow in Grape Jelly, the CUTEST little tin of mints and chocolate! Here’s the whole pile all together:

There was five minutes of sunlight left when I got home from work today so I decided to do some yarn photography. ;o) I can’t wait to make something with this! I think I might do a multi-directional scarf with the Noro and something lacy with the laceweight…oh and the chocolate’s gone. Didn’t have a chance.

I’m not sure how Karen and I started being blogfriends – I think she might have stumbled upon me…? Anyway, we seem to have some kind of cosmic connection. Witness:

That’s the Lorna’s Laces I bought at The Point on Monday. Colors look familiar? ;o)

Thank you, Karen! You made a semi-crappy week a helluva lot brighter!

One more thing, is it just me or does Dick Button need to be smacked with his own microphone? I mean, what the hell? He’s so freakin’ picky! I know he was ‘all that’ in his day but come ON, I’d like to see him try a freakin’ quad jump. No, really, I’d like to see him try it. I think it’d be funny as hell. ;o)

Oh and my car is fixed. It’s going to have to be a story for another day, though because it’s a freaking epic. Last week’s loveliness trickled into this week. Gah.
