A Little Indulgence

So far, October hasn't been the best month at Control the Clutter. I decided I'd done so well in September that I could make a little Knit Picks purchase. And well, they had a great book sale going and there's been some yarn I've been looking at... you know the rest.

Knit Picks Imagination- Lost Boys

Imagination Sock Yarn- Lost Boys

Knit Picks Imagination- Frog Prince

Imagination Sock Yarn- Frog Prince

Knit Picks Imagination- Wicked Witch

Imagination Sock Yarn- Wicked Witch

This yarn is 50% Superwash Merino, 25% Alpaca, and 25% Nylon. It's very, very soft! And I really dig the fairytale names they're using. At $4.99 a skein, it's a steal.

More on the books and my most recent projects later this week.

Today is my first day on pm shift. That's 3-11 this evening. I'm currently watching the new Indiana Jones while Brian makes breakfast. Much better than my 4:45 am wake up call yesterday. I have a feeling this sleeping later thing is going to work out just fine!

Love your color choices! And the names too... Sometimes I find I'm only so so about a yarn but the name sucks me right in, heh heh!

Love the new yarns! You can almost see the softness!

What did you think of the Jones movie? I haven't seen it yet.

Yummy! I've done a good job resisting. Maybe after the first of the year. Must take care of Christmas first. :)

I always did better on the night shift. I am not a morning person.

The yarn is just lovely! I'm trying to stay away from Yarn stores, but I just pre-ordered some malagrigo sock yarn (bad, bad).
I used to like 3-11pm shift a lot, when I worked per diem. I didn't like it so much as a full-timer, because of my family. But it's usually a much calmer shift than dayshift...less people around the nurse's station!

Gorgeous colors. The price is awesome.
Shift work definitely takes some getting used to. I used to do it for a little while in college and it isn't that bad when you adjust. My hubby has done it for about 6 years now and he's still not adjusted, but he can be a big baby.
