Lunch with Loopy

I must be making up for lost blogging time with multiple posts per day. Or maybe I'm just bored and need to get out. This morning I worked on finishing the body of the DiC shrug and now I'm ready to seam up the sleeves and then pick up for the border. So I decided it was a good time to break for lunch. (At 3:00 in the afternoon lunch is a little late, I know. But that's what you get when you didn't get up for breakfast until 10:30.) So I'm sitting here eating a bowl of blueberries and Cool Whip when the mailman arrives. Which is good because he didn't come at all yesterday and I was beginning to worry that maybe our house had become invisible to outsiders or something. I mean, why else wouldn't the mailman stop here?! He or she normally slides the mail through the slot in the door and leaves. But today I heard a thump just outside the door. I know what that means!!!! That means a PACKAGE!!!!! Immediately I put down my bowl of blueberries and Cool Whip and ran to open the door and dive into the package. And you gotta love what was inside! It was from TLE so you know it was good!I'm now set for going back to work and taking my tea or coffee with me. Well, maybe I'm not ready for the going back to work part, but who said I can't have the tea or coffee on the side porch in the morning? Then feast your eyes on these beauties!!!
Those of you who know me know that I'm such a fall baby and how much I love fall colors. How could I possibly resist Jitterbug's new colorway "October Afternoon"??? It's like it was screaming out to me! It's a blend of pumpkins, dark greens, and brick reds. You know I'm in love!
And I've been wanting to try some Chewy Spaghetti and colorway Simpatico seemed to fit the bill for me. It will make lovely fall socks with it's peach, brown, tan, cream, light blue, and dark pumpkin.
I'm already dreaming of those cooler nights of autumn. mmmmmmm..... pumpkin......
I've also been interested in the possibility of attempting a colorwork project and the ShiBui Transition Gloves were very appealing. So I picked up the pattern and some lovely yarns for it as well.

And TLE must have known that I was having lunch because now I have some yummy Loopy kisses to crunch on to finish off the lunch. What a great day! Now maybe I should get back to finishing some of those WIP so I can cast on one of these lovelies!
