Three Quick Things

  1. A couple of you mentioned that the STR in my last post was extremely pastel for Blue Moon yarn. You're right -- the dyers are just now moving into pastels. Pastels get a bad rap, and I'd hate to have only pastel colors to choose from, but some of my favorite colors are pastels.
  2. Bezzie -- there were TWO patterns with the yarn, which is called Goody Goody, and while neither was called Two Shoes (although wouldn't that be a great name for a sock pattern?), one is called Gumdrops and the other is called Sweet Tart.
  3. Saturday, I was the target of a RAOK. When I attempted to pay for my grande non-fat two-pump-hazelnut latte' at the drive-through of the Starbucks at Clearlake and Dirksen in Springfield, IL (the closest Starbucks to my mom's house), I was told it had already been paid for by the woman in the car in front of me. Wow! I can't tell you a thing about her or the car -- I wish I could! Now I owe one...

Wow, a pay-it-forward moment. Very cool. How come that never happens at the gas pump?

Aw, bummer about the Two Shoes, but I do have a soft spot for Sweet Tarts!

Ok, that is very cool about the RAOK - and did it totally make your day?!

I've always wanted to do the RAOK at Starbucks but seem to forget while I'm anticipating my own java. I'll need to write myself a note on my money or something...Seriously...
