Yarn and weather

Okay, the yarn did not come out exactly as planned. I guess I didn't really expect it to, but I was hoping...

The green is my favorite.
In the meantime, I've ordered more supplies, and I'm just sitting on my hands waiting for them to arrive. Okay, not too much sitting. I've made some stitch markers.

And swapped one of my Aracaunia skeins for a brighter shade at The Yarn Garden. Incidentally, the sale was still going on there on Sat. when I went. Score!

All of it is ready to be dyed.

I cast on for the baby sweater I want to make for Gina's little boy. She is due at the end of this month, so I hope I can get my crap together and get it done along with a little viking hat (her dad is CRAZY about the Minnesota Vikings) before the kid is too big.

In other news....lightning almost struck my mom's house! From what Mom and Dad say, it was like something huge rammed the side of their home. My mom was so shook up from the sound and vibration, her heart was racing for half an hour afterwards. There are bits of tree all over their roof and yard - even some clear across the street!
