Rocky Road

and please, not the song, I do not care for John Denver but I like him better than John Boy.

I won another contest by commenting on what my favorite desert is. I like to chew my ice cream, it is the same with cereal (Kashi Crunch, bring it on). Devon is a Pastry Cook. How cool is that. Now get this...she had Bubbleknits, of Alabama Fiber Dreams dye up ROCKY ROAD yarn!! Bubbleknits is one of my favorite blogs. You have to mark your calendar as she will have new yarns available on 4/4/08.

Devon, Thank you so very much. This yarn is delectable!

Look at how spot on the colors are

There were also three stitch markers to match.

As I have been so lucky following Chan's links to contests, I hope you will follow me to Bea's contest at Baa, Baa, Blacksheep.

I first read about it here at Rabbitch's. You must go also visit there and read her last few posts.

Please stop by Robin's The Knittin' Coop and wish her the best for Milo. Please check out her tank top. It is just gorgeous

I am still working on my
socks and have about 20 more rows to do on the toes to finish up today but I wanted to share some knitterly goodness of some of my friends.

Check out Wendy's bag. Isn't that just the greatest color selection and random pattern repeat?

Robin of
For the Love of Fiber is working on another mystery shawl. I do not know how she does it. But she was able to post a fantastic close up of the pattern and colorway together.

My pear tree last evening at 7:00

This is a view of my home from the street

Thanks for the shout-out!
Love that Rocky Road, it's beautiful!
Your pears are lovely, but is it my imagination or do they smell funky? I kept thinking a cat had sprayed out side.

I'll leave you with one last comment...what would it be like if John Boy sang?

What great yarn! I know you'll love it; I'm knitting with her yarn now on Fredfoot...

Hey, thanks for the shout out and kudos on the bag! I used it today to run out for a few errands. A little chilly again today, but the bag made me hopeful for spring! Still waiting for the tree in our front yard to bloom.

Fab yarn prize! I bet you fall in love (and crave chocolate) while knitting with it!

That yarn looks scrumpdilyicious! And OH MY that pear tree is gorgeous. Happy spring. :)

So glad the yarn arrived safely. May the thought of an ice cream treat make those socks practically knit themselves. Enjoy.
