Wool Girl!!

I put in an order to Wool Girl to make myself feel better and it came today. I mainly just needed to get some things for the Tea Swap, which I have been neglecting. But, of course, I had to indulge in some Seacoast Panda Sock. I got Chocolate and Caramel (above)and Desert Rose (below) for my own sweet, stressed out self. I like Wool Girl, she wraps everything real pretty, she ships super fast and emails me back real quick when I have questions. I have never used this type of yarn before but I am hoping I like it. The colors in this line are always amazing. I can't wait to live near an actual yarn store and be able to touch yarn before I buy it, though I will still be spending too much money at Wool Girl I am sure.
Here is part of the stuff for the Tea Swap. I got cheesy and ordered everything online, sorry, i am way more busy than I thought I would be. I got her some Polar Bar soap from Biggs and Featherbelle, a stitch marker shaped like a tea cup, and a hank of Seacoast Panda in Raspberry Truffle. I am just waiting on the tea I ordered and some more cute little things.
On the house note, it is now under contract ( I think). We gave them the price they wanted and they are throwing in a lot of the furniture, including a fire pit!!!!So, I think everyone is happy, or at least I am. And, I took everyone's advice ( I am listening to you guys!!!) and scheduled a home inspection for next week and the seller's are providing a home warranty. In case anyone is interested, the MLS# is 250899. I would love some feedback on our new purchase, or semi-purchase. For me, back to untangling the Anne .

Yeah Beth, *fingers crossed* on the house for you. Woolgirl always makes me feel better even if it is just looking at the pictures and dreaming...

Wishing you luck on the house front!!!

And those yarns are so dreamy...

I wish making a yarn purchase was in my budget right now, but I'll live vicariously through you! :D

Look forward to meeting you in HSV at maybe one of the Thursday night knit nights at yarnX. Let's hope they finish up the Parkway mess soon, as you will get to enjoy it once you get that new house. Otherwise its a nice area of town. If that house falls through you may want to relook in the Lily Flagg/Four Mile Post/Jones Valley areas. Prices are still reasonable and the school district is good. Also still within your 2-mile radius for the yarn store. Also read further and congrats on firing that realtor, I would have done the same thing in a heart beat and the fact that you flew in meant you had a limited amount of time to view houses and make a decision. Good Luck.
