Thank goodness for Birthday Money


How else would I be able to afford:

Three skeins of Fleece Artist Merino Wool.
Clockwise from the top: Cosmic Dawn, Mermaid and Rainforset

Three skeins of Fleece Artist Sea Wool.
From left to right: Brick, Fruit Punch and Ivory

Oh! And Connie gave me that bottle of Soak (a biodegradable, no rinse yarn wash).

Thanks Connie!


About Angela

My name is Angela. I am a 28 year old psych and criminology graduate, but I'd rather not diagnose you. I am a cuddle-slut. I can recite the entire script of The Princess Bride, (including accents) and believe that the meaning of life is contained within. Polyanna, commercials, and Oprah 'reunion shows' make me cry. I can whistle and hum at the same time, but I cannot touch my toes. I am an expert in both listening and talking. I look good in orange. I am a writer. I kick ass in Gin, Hearts, and Cribbage but I don't understand Canasta or Bridge. I can be heard singing Broadway numbers from my shower, and have dressed up as a viking princess, (complete with aluminum foil breast plate) The Phantom of the Opera, and a Ghostbuster for Hallowe'en. I have a bird named Bean. I have a brother named Adam. They are not related. I like vanilla body lotion, peanut butter, saunas, Jim Carrey, broccoli, pets,, Muppets, Kevin Smith, Corelle dishes, dry erase white-boards, Barenaked Ladies, Philosophy, the letter J, Harry Potter, picture frames, swimming, quilting, Michael Moore, genealogy, Raggedy Anne, tacky 50's tchotchke, 'Idiot's Complete Guide To' books, tweezers, feather pillows, polar dips, aquariums, Martin Luther King Jr., and Dr. Pepper. I don't like meat, gossips, cooked carrots, American Idol, mosquitoes, sweating, politics, public washrooms, tardiness, tuition, hunting, pat answers, pick up lines, brown bananas, cliches, pine scented air freshener, Kevin Costner, bacon, candied apples, pro-wrestling, humidity, and hypocrisy. Books I've read recently The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Dark Tower, When Nietzsche Wept, What's So Amazing About Grace?, Catcher in the Rye, Not Wanted On the Voyage, The Red Tent, The Little Prince, The Way the Crow Flies, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Poisonwood Bible, The Fall, The Knot of Vipers, Calculating God, The Chrysalids, Sick Puppy, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Franny and Zooey, The Brothers Karamazov, and jPod. I am slightly neurotic. No I'm not. Yes I am.

  1. Fleece Artist sure makes me proud to be Canadian!!! Your skeins are so pretty! I can’t wait to see your opinion on the sea wool.

  2. Beautiful yarns! i am very keen to try the sea wool – it looks gorgeous. And Soak is a fabulous product, I love it.

  3. Michelle – I’m knitting socks (just a basic 3×1 rib) in the sea wool now. I’m really enjoying the yarn even though the colour way is not something I’d choose for myself. Two thumbs up so far.

    Mary – Thanks for stopping by. I love meeting new people with similar yarn afflictions.

    Kellie – The sea wool is knitting up very nicely (with out the usual fishy smell) so I’m quite pleased with it. And I haven’t tried the Soak yet, but today might just be The Day.
