Friday Eye Candy

A couple of weeks ago I won a prize in Trek's contest. Can you believe it?! I never win those random things. (I'm starting to think Sheila was right: this is a Good Year for us Sagittarians!) :)

And then earlier this week a squishy package arrived from Ms. Trek. I opened it and out peeked this gorgeous paper, and even more gorgeous yarn:

Just look at that color (said I to myself)!

And then Lisa Souza's familiar swirl logo (I designed it!) came into view and I thought, duh! Of course it's Lisa's yarn!

Yum. The color, St. Valentine, is one I had been lusting after. I was trying to decide between it and watermelon. So...decision made! Isn't it lovely?! Thank you Trek!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!

I can't even wear that color without it throwing me into semi-seizure mode and losing my balance (visual overstimulation does weird things post-car-accident), and I still made a shawl out of that exact yarn. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous stuff. And then I bought it in silk to go make another one, not realizing it was the same St. Valentines till I got it home from Stitches. The stuff is addictive. Lisa does nice work.
