At the New Hampshire Sheep and Wool every every year I enter their silent auction. I never win. Other people do. TILL NOW!! I won four skeins of the most wonderful, warm, soft, happy-making Icelandic ever from Frelsi Farm in Maine. Isn't it just beautiful!?! YOU SHOULD TOUCH IT. Awesome. SO soft. I also received two $10 gift certificates for MORE of the stuff. And I do want more. I think I am going to get a second skein of each color. A plan is sort of forming in my little brain. A plan I have no time to execute, but will probably sneak in anyway.
In other news, and this may be sacrilege, but I am not sure what she was thinking. Elizabeth, I mean. I mean, um, really. It just doesn't work. Not even on Girl Who Looks Good in Hats (she did not inherit this from me. I tend more toward this when it comes to hats, hence the appearance of me in public only in cowgirl headwear). We even tried it on Katy Who Looks Good in Hats. No go. The Elizabeth Zimmermann Three-Corner Tam is bust. I am not in love at all. I am, however, still in love with the snail hat which is coming along nicely and should appear Monday.
