It's a testament to the crazy that I totally missed yesterday being February 1, aka the day I got to open the first package from this season's Biscotte club. When I finally figured it out, yay! But I was in the middle of stuff, so I made myself wait another half hour while I got it done. I'm Stoic like that, you know.
Okay, maybe not so much Stoic as easily distracted because I had to move stuff in mid-stuff, and came across some vintage knitting pattern books given me by a friend and had to stop to look, and then photograph one in particular.
All the patterns in this booklet are awesome in their basic-ness. They'd do a brilliant job showcasing some of the gorgeous yarns available today that weren't back then; I've set the book aside to give one of them a go later on.
But what the heck is that woman looking at? Her eyes are practically bugging out!
She wasn't the only one - I was much the same when I finally got my Biscotte package open:
Wowza! That's actually two separate skeins, for the wildest, most cheery-uppy-in-winter socks you can possibly imagine and then some (Ravelry link - and if you can't connect to it, then imagine some seriously wild socks and rest assured they are wilder than that, even.)
And to complete the three-things cycle, I got a call to confirm I would in fact be home to receive flowers. That sure doesn't happen every day.
Allow me to leave you for the day with one last vintage knit image:
Seriously, what on earth did they put off-camera?
(and yes, I'm totally knitting that blue cardi.)
