Yarn Browsing and a laugh

Okay, admittedly, I'm sad that Sundara's Club is changing - I have been in love with the delightful packaging and amazing patterns... but have you seen her new permanent colors? I am in love with almost every one but especially Grape over Grey Violet. Maybe to make that Tatami Kimono I have been dreaming about? Ah, I have a few projects in queue before I can start that, but it's a good holiday gift idea huh? I mean the kit, for myself. Of course you knew that, rght?

And have you seen Madelinetosh? Wow, she is another lovely indie dyer that I may need to get my paws on soon. Some Robin's Nest, Peony and Ginseng - I mean, if I were in the market for more yarn, that is. *giggle*

And lest I forget, in case anyone was wondering - Wollmeise is open for business - woot woot! I am on a diet - again, it's on the Christmas list - but like any good yarn addict, I wanted to pass on the information.

And because I can laugh at myself and this post needs a photo...
My husband and I at Senior Prom - circa 1989

We celebrated 13 years of marriage yesterday - and 19 years of dating. Eek! Where does the time go? You gotta love the 80's big hair and mullet - I chuckled when I dug this one out of the vault! Our life has evolved to children, gray hair and early bed times, but he's still the one!

Tomorrow I hope to flash my finished Embossed Leaves sock - I have enjoyed every gorgeous chart.

Awww that's a cute picture of you two! I'm sad about Sundara's club. I do not knit laceweight and no plans to ever do so. So I'm not joining. :( But I agree that new color Grape over grey is pretty. Wollmeise..staying away also, so don't feel too bad! :)

Awesome! Love the hair! That year I went to my BF's prom where he insisted that we not smile in the photo. Weird dude.

Congrats on your anniversary!

Love the photo. Personally, I would be willing to grow my hair back out if the side ponytail ever comes back in style! Was that done with a banana clip even? All hail the banana clip!

I love your head-tilt, very model worthy! So cute and funny. I dated my husband in high school too. We have some pictures just like that. Thanks for sharing. I got married in 1989 and you were just at prom! Yikes, I am getting old.

I love the pic! My senior prom was in 1989 too! It brings back many memories. Oh the big hair! I just love the 80's! They were like what the 60's were to my parents. My kids are saying, "Mom, you know all the words to these songs! - (80's at 8:00pm of course)." Ah, the good 'ole days! :)

Okay, so I'm just a few years older than you. I married my 1985 and 1986 prom date in 1989. But just a few years...
P.S. I refuse to click your Madeline Tosh link. I'm getting stronger!

Youknow - there is no banana clip in there - but I wore them. Yes, I did.

I meant to comment on this picture you and your DH look Darling:) What a handsome couple. Sigh, to be young again... How wonderful that you married your high school sweetheart! There aren't that many of us that can say that:)

Your DH reminds me of a young John Travolta in that picture.

I have almost the same picture! My dress was almost the same, but my date had a blonde mullet. So close. Ah, the 80's...
