freezer bags of apples pie mix and 14 pints of applesauce. These apples were so sweet that I used no sugar at all in either the pie stuff or the applesauce.

My friend Phyllis, blogger of Knit and Purr, whom I met at Noble Knitters, went all sweet on me. Well, not that she wasn't always that way, Phyllis is a sweetheart. She bought me a skein of Wollmeise from the Ravelry group: Completely Pointless and Arbitrary Group under their RAK 4 Angels Swap. I'm not feeling too angelic but apparently Phyllis thought I was... Thank you my friend! I will think of you everytime I pet my skein of Wollmeise. It is gorgeous. The colorway is Versuchskaninchen1. She bought it from a Ravelry lady in Germany. I will be thinking of a special project for this yarn. Talk about making my day. Not only did a beautiful skein of Wollmeise arrive but also little German teabags, wafer cookies and treats! Wow, I feel special all because of you, Phyllis ...
Some shop news ... scheduled to arrive this week, the ever fabulous brand new Zuma bag from Namaste. More on that later...

Here's a closeup of Mona's kitty window seat that Chris made for her. We call this window the "TV." Mona loves her perch- You can see that she just woke up.
Chris enjoys yardwork (a little too much judging by this picture)
Here's the kitchen. Please note the yellow countertops. The floor and walls are also all yellow. That is want prompted the wallpaper. There isn't much you can do with yellow countertops other than go with it.

Wow, the Harry Potter yarn has been extremely popular and no wonder. Opal is a great sock yarn and fun to knit and watch the patterns evolve.
Also just refreshed at The Yarn Grove - more Nature's Palette fingering weight and of course, Hiya Hiya needles in a multitude of popular sizes... Hope your days include lots of fiber!
