**If you want a chance to win some yarny goodness there is a contest over at My House of Wool. She hasn’t said what the prize but I’m sure it’ll be good! You have until Feb 4th to enter, and make sure to mention that you saw it here!**

Bear with me if this post is a little lacking…Let me tell you, this has been quite a week…Today was going a little better than the last two because I thought it was Thursday. I was sadly mistaken and that kind of set the tone for today. Blah…I’m just going to grit my teeth and get through to the weekend. At least I have my yarn to squeeze. :-)

Speaking of yarn, I received my order from Ewe-Phoria Yarns a couple days ago. It is gorgeous! After hearing about the shop on L&V, I checked it out. This was more of an impulse buy, but I was so surprised at the prices in the shop that I had to order. This yarn is called Flamenco and is sort of a hot pink/maroon and dk purple/black. I love the pink and black combo almost as much as pink and brown.

I was able to turn the heel on the Anastasia sock on Sunday. I met up with Angie again while the boys went to see a movie. Turning a heel is hard while you are chatting! I had to keep stopping to count the stitches. I tried it on and it looks great. I thought it might be a tad small (again) but the negative ease is just enough to open up the eyelets. Nice. I will show it on the foot in the next progress shot.

While I was trying to get a picture of the sock Jessie insisted that she was more important. It took a couple of pictures to get one without her in it. But to make her feel better I got one of her too.

That’s about all I got, except that I am starting this tonight. I took a hint from Alyson since the recipient most likely reads my blog. Well it’s back to work now. Tonight is Knit Night but I probably won’t be going. There is just too much going on this week. Maybe next week?

I know what you mean. I thought today was Thursday also. Good thing I finally remembered it was Wednesday, or else my #3 wouldn't have gotten to preschool! So, I'm right there with ya, BLAH!

P.S. How is Diana doing?

Oh Jeez, I wish it were Thursday. I would have had the day off. I love the secret project, and I'm sorry the week's been a tough one. Hope it gets better before the weekend.

I've felt the same way this week. I kept asking myself, "is it Friday yet?" Well it's finally Friday, yeah. I hope you have a great weekend. Have fun squeezing that yarn :).
