Okay - first I just have to comment on So You Think You Can Dance, which I'm going to need to start calling SYTYCD with that long ass name. Anyway - how great was that?! And it was only the first week! The tango was pretty lame, but I think poor Ricky is in trouble with such a tall partner. I looooved the contemporary dance with Lacey - loved it!
Anyway - I received some yarn goodness in the mail today. (No, this isn't on my yarn diet. Yes, I fell off the wagon again.)
This is a clearance buyout from Webs. I learned of them from their podcast, Ready Set Knit. Although they have great closeout bargains on line, I was a bit dismayed after I was contacted twice by their customer service. The first time they had to give me the news that they, in fact, only had 10 of the 12 balls I ordered of a cotton-merino blend. I decided 10 would work, but then they e-mailed with the note that they were two different dye lots. Bummer. It just wasn't meant to be. Anyway, I got some great Debbie Bliss yarn for a baby project (<$3/ball) and Regia sock yarn.
Brian and I also made a Target sale purchase.
We purchase most of our furniture from Target and have never been disappointed. We saw this Hudson collection in the Sunday flyer and just knew it was perfect for our style. We picked up the desk/hutch and file cabinet for a song. Now I'm listening to Brian cuss like a sailor as he tries to assemble it.
It's sad that it will replace the little desk that Brian bought for me during PA school. He wanted me to have a place to study while I was on rotation in Chicago. So he picked up a little desk from Ikea and put it in the corner of his little bedroom for me. What a nice guy.
