Ask and you shall receive!

Ever have one of those moments when you've spent what seems like days weeks ions searching for something, only to realize you should've just went to the source to start? My recent moment was searching for the perfect colorway to make a friend's Christmas gift from. I searched all the way from ABC to XYZ handdyed yarn companies and nothing was quite right. Then the ah-ha moment struck: custom colorway! I went straight to Heather of Sereknity Yarn & Fiber, where quite frankly, I should've just begun my search.

Ask and you shall receive... in only a week! Thanks Heather!

The one on the left is for the Mountaineer loving friend's item (who may or may not read my blog, so I'm not going in to too much detail right now) and the one on the right is my Go Pats colorway! You see, since I was having Miss Heather dye me one custom football colorway, why not ask for the one I would adore too, right? I'd seen plenty of red, white and blue... but hadn't yet found my red, silver and blue Patriots colorway. Now, insert a bit of happy squeal here, as both are perfect! Now to get knitting... just how many days left until Chrismtas??

I'll leave you with some Friday Fill-Ins...

1. The last band I saw live was AC/DC.

2. What I look forward to most on Thanksgiving is time with family and leftover Turkey sandwiches!

3. My Christmas/holiday shopping is in progress, although cut back a lot this year.

4. Thoughts of the gazillion knitting projects I want to do fill my head.

5. I wish I could wear stilettos.

6. Bagpipes can be soothing to listen too.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to watching Ghost Whisperer, tomorrow my plans include trying to get rest and kick this cold I've caught and Sunday, I want to felt, felt, felt (see post earlier this week - I've got several bags ready to felt) -- and I'll be thinking about my Nana........alot!

Those look like fun yarns to use. Can't wait to see the finished items. Don't forget the photos.

Bagpipes almost always make me cry.

Beautiful colors. I need to have her do a custom order for me.

Bagpipes. Star Trek. Spock's funeral. Amazing Grace. My mom and I, using a tree's worth of Kleenex.

So what did you think of last night's Ghost Whisperer? The hubby kept leaving the room shaking his head (and he doesn't even follow the show). lol
