Score!

I found the Noro Silk Garden color and dye lot I was looking for at Iris:



I also found this:



It's Classic Elite Alpaca Sox. I think instead of making socks with it, I will attempt to make gloves. And, I got 3 pairs of Crystal Palace 6" DPNs. Phyllis showed me some new rosewood with sterling silver straight knitting needles she is getting in. They're just lovely.

Not much else exciting going on here. It's Friday(!) and I'm going snowshoeing in a county park near Madison tomorrow. Paulette and I will then go the Sow's Ear yarn store in Verona, if it's open. Woo hoo, more yarn!

Jeffy is all excited that he got the tissue paper that my yarn was wrapped in:

He just loves the tissue paper (since he was a kitten). He thought this was especially nice because of the pawprints on it.
