TGIF.............

I don't want to talk about how we got even MORE rain the last couple days so.........moving on............

Okay. So if the wine is the evil and the cork is the island.................what does that make the bottle? HMMmmmmm. I guess it doesn't matter because MiB/FLocke/Esau/Ole Smokey be smashing that shit soon anyway. lol
 SEVEN EPPIES LEFT TO GO!!! :)
  
(Side note: if I had a dollar for every 'I'M ON A HORSE' comment I've seen on ONTD lost postings in regards to this episode this week, I would be a very rich person. And you know what? I laugh every single time I see one. Every.single.time. I freaking LOVE that commercial. IT NEVER GETS OLD.)

Someone remind me again that I'm on a yarn diet..........*cough* supposedly........

Enh. What can I say? It was Fate. Wollmeise is harder to come by than gold chunks (SO NOT KIDDING) and I just *happened* to look at my Facebooks *exactly* two seconds after Sheri at The Loopy Ewe announced she had posted some so I went "oh" and got some. People camp out at their computers for daysssssssssssss (STILL NOT KIDDING) hitting refresh every 5 seconds for Wollmeise. People try for months and months to score the Wollmeise and still come away empty-handed.*** I feel pretty punchy that I had no clue 'bout nuttin' and haven't tried in at least a year to get some and managed to snag three skeins. <-- That would be a whole lot of me justifying the purchase(albeit in a truthful manner) because, once again, the VERY LAST THING I need in this world is more yarn. The sad part is, if this happened again just like this next month, I would fall prey to it AGAIN. I'm never not going to buy the Wollmeise if given the chance. Just saying.

***If this seems strange, empty, and sad to you, I don't blame you. It is rather odd. But such is the power of Wollmeise. Skeins sometimes go for $100+ on eBay for them. Forum fights are fought over it. Certain areas of Ravelry are, right now, completely under water for all the drooling going on over Wollmeise stash pictures. It just is what it is. As long as Wollmeise basically equals one brave german soul doing her best to provide for the masses who love her stuff, it will be this way.

WOW! I love the colors you managed to get. You will have to tell me in detail what it is like to knit with so I can live vicariously through your Wollmeise blessed life.
