Homeward Bound

It has been a really long week. My DH had to fly back to Guam on a family matter last Monday. That left me home alone. But he is on a plane as I am writing this and should be back in Colorado in about an hour! YEAH!! I spent most of the weekend at my friends' homes to fight off the loneliness. While he was gone I did alot of knitting of course, and some retail therapy.

Del totally deserved some new socks - hand knit socks makes everything better right?

I really like the bright colors! As I said they are Koigu-ish in softness, but thinner, like Trekking.

I got some yarny goodness in the mail today from The Loopy Ewe. This is Fleece Artist, Pinata.

The package came priority(I like that). The yarn was wrapped in tissue like a present. Nice touch. Sheri, from The Loopy Ewe hand wrote a note and included a little extra gift and samples of other yarn crack that she knows I must have!! hehe Customer service is very important in such a competitive business. We knitters like the attention to detail and going the extra step. Bravo.
