Happy Vals! Or Thursday... whatever

I suppose I should start today with a lovely red yarn.

STR Lightweight- Mustang Sally

STR- Mustang Sally. I traded another Ravelry user for some Yarn Nerd I wasn't using.
Isn't it pretty? Or, I could show you this one...

Sheepaints- Rambling Rose

Sheepaints in Rambling Rose. I received this one for some Yarn Pirate. It came all the way from Germany and VERY quickly! My trade partner picked it out for me without me even seeing it. Didn't she do a great job?!?!?!

Or, I could show you the new Yarn Pirate Booty Club shipment. Click here to see it. This one is destined to be a baby sweater for a friend expecting in July. Funny how without trying, I still had 3 new yarns to show you that are appropriate for today. Maybe my subconscious is telling me I need a little more red in my life!

I have been doing some knitting.

Toe Jazz- 1 done

Here's the first Toe Jazz sock. It looks pretty normal in this picture. But check out the crazy toe!

Toe Jazz- Freaky Toe

Isn't that weird looking? It fits fine when it's on. But it's really funny looking! Can't see? Check out the close up...

Toe Jazz- Weird Toe

HAHAHHA!!! Cracks me up. That's what my friend wants though.

I also went shopping on etsy. Oops!

Crochet Keychain

Check out this awesome keychain! It's a little crochet hook. You know, for when you drop a stitch in morning traffic? Just kidding. Don't knit and drive. Ruth made it and you can get your own here. She has different colors and ships fast. It makes me so happy each time I see it!

Speaking of Etsy... One of my favorite shops had a sale this week. And I could resist this little guy no longer.

Pedro the Penguin

Meet Pedro. Isn't he the cutest? Soto Softies makes adorable stuffed toys. I think Pedro will be a great addition to my Christmas menagerie.

I think that's enough for today. Have a great one! And try to give a little more love to the world everyday.

Love the keychain and the Pedro! He is really cute, and you can leave him "out" for the whole winter! :)
I love Mustang Sally, and Red isn't even one of my faves!

That cuteness at the end was almost unbearable. I love that little penguin, as well as the keychain! It really helped me get over being extremely weirded out by the TOE.

Pedro is the best. I love his eye!

Very cute penguin. And lovely yarn, as always. But I have to admit, the toe on that sock is kind of freaking me out.

Oh my that socks is fabulous! It does crack me up though! Now Pedro is simply adorable and you know what? I might have to run off and get one of those for my DH his first name is Pedro--even though he doesn't use it. It was a riot watching Napoleon Dynamite whenever Pedro would come on or the "Vote for Pedro" slogans:)

Those are some a fabulous yarn trades --I am going to have to get on the bandwagon:)

Thanks for the link for the mini crochet hook. I am off to get one for me. :)

Congrats on the great Ravelry trade scores. I have been trading too...it is a great way to get yarn with no $$.

I don't know which I'm more jealous of-the awesome keychain or the
Sheepaints in Rambling Rose! Probably the latter, since I think it will be easier to acquire the keychain than that yarn!

Thanks for the shoutout with my keychains! I've started making custom-lettered ones too!

I'm absolutely snocked by that sheepaints! Gotta go find some now...
