Goodies, and More Goodies

Today I woke up and decided to be a bad girl. I played hookie from work. I did also need to go to the eye doctor, but I could easily have done that after work. I just decided to get a couple of other things done today, instead of waiting for the weekend. More yarn is needed to finish my new Clapotis, (which meant a drive out to Heritage Spinning and Weaving in Lake Orion).

Well, when I got home I had packages waiting for me. Woo Hoo!! Packages on the porch are always a good thing. And usually make for good blog fodder. When I first heard that there was a 2-At-A-Time Socks book coming out I was so excited. I went straight to and rush ordered a copy. Well it came, and from a quick glance I think I'm im love.

I had also purchased a couple of sock bags from a great etsy shop, Stuck In Illinois. They arrived today and all I can say is this bag maker rocks. I'd suggest you go by her shop and check out her cool bags. Here are mine.

Good for you playing hooky, it's good for the soul every now and again. I love boxes on the porch it's like X-mas without the hassle. I think you just enabled my sock bag habit. I might have to be a copy cat.
