um, oops? with bonus views from my desk

by Michelle on April 18, 2008

So…you know how I said I stayed home from work yesterday and played with yarn and Ravelry and stuff? Well, in my wanderings I somehow stumbled on Sharon‘s Etsy shop and…some yarn followed me home. (It really seemed that way, too–it was already here when I got home from work today! That’s some fast shipping, even if she is only across town.)

Check out my latest acquisitions:

(I know I saw this colorway–Andes Mints–on someone’s blog, but darned if I can figure out whose it was. Another thing I did yesterday was some catch up on blog reading!)

Unrelatedly…

From time to time, I look up from my desk and notice that there’s something interesting/pretty/curious/whatever outside my window and I grab my camera.

Last October, there was this rainbow (also, beautiful fall colors on the trees):

In January, there was a drop-dead gorgeous blue sky:

Today, there was some excitement! This happens, oh, quarterly I’d say:

Occasionally, we see them across the way, too:

Can you imagine actually doing that job? I’m on the 11th floor of an 18-story building. I think I’ll stay inside it, thanks.

I have two of the andes mints! I love it!! Is the second one Victor by any chance? if so, that’s a color close to my heart. Hehe.

I love her yarns. love love love. 🙂

what a great view from your office, too!

Yep, that’s Victor. Love those colors together! The third one is Xanadu, and I also have a skein of Dark and Divine, which is what started it all. (Picked that one up at Twisted and loved it so much that I couldn’t resist buying more from her Etsy shop.) I can’t wait to actually make some socks with them now! I think the Dark and Divine is up as soon as I finish the second of my Bartholomew’s.
