Because I'm human, sometimes I see that I have 8 or 10 comments on a post and it gets me down. I start feeling like nobody is reading, or I'm boring, or people just flat-out don't like me. Isn't that silly and insecure of me? I have to remind myself that even if I have ZERO comments, I'd still keep doing it. After all, we all started doing this with zero commenters and/or followers, didn't we? I didn't even have the Followers capability on my blog for at least two years, and I still loved doing it.
Anyway, thank you ALL for commenting, whether it's once or twice a year, or nearly every time I post. Or I guess I should say just thank you for reading. You make my life better. You make me happy. You fill a space in my heart that would be empty otherwise, as pathetic as that sounds. It's not pathetic. It's just a part of my life now, this blogging thing. To know I've made someone smile, or feel better, or just entertained you with my silliness sometimes, makes it worthwhile.
Okay, sugary-sweetness over. I'll get to the post for today. Oh, wait! Look at this first...
Look how cute! GAH!
Look at his little toes spread out.
Gosh, I'm feeling all sappy and loving today.
Now the real point of my post today...NEW YARN!
Sammi thinks it smells good.
She kept poking her flat nose way down in the skeins.
I've been dying to get my hands of some of this yarn since I first saw it. I had to order it from Deramore's in England because they don't sell it over here in the U.S. Isn't it beautiful and fun-looking? It's very soft too...78% cotton and 22% acrylic. I just keep staring at it and pondering what I'm going to make with it. I want to make something like a poncho or blanket or something that uses all of these seven colors together. I spent a good two hours looking through patterns yesterday on Ravelry. I'll settle on something soon, I hope.
In the meantime, look at this:
Now THAT'S a granny poncho! It's made with over 200 little grannies! I would never make something like this because I'd never have the patience to make 200 of anything, but I love looking at this one. I love the fur trim too. And the browns. I love everything about it. Credit and more information: HERE
This makes me laugh every time I look at it.
He is sleeping HARD!
I got this picture from Pinterest but forgot to save the source.
Have a wonderful day, Friends.
