I just got my first Sip’n’Stitch package. It’s awesome. Love the yarn (Luxe base: 75/25 sw merino/tussah silk)! The color will most likely grow on me. I’m not usually a fan of browns, but the gold in this is just so pretty. And that’s also a part of the fun of being in a club: getting something that I wouldn’t usually pick for myself.

The coffee is from Joe Van Gogh and it says on the label that it’s “an organic blend from Guatemala with hints of cocoa to warm you up this holiday season.” I can smell it through the bag and it’s just so enticing. But before I can try it out, I need to wash my French press and coffee grinder.

On Saturday I went over to Lucy’s to help her sort out her yarn. I had a blast just fondling the yarn and sorting everything into piles. As a thank you, she gave me a skein of her hand dyed alpaca which I’ve named Lucy.

And just so this isn’t all about yarn, I cooked! I love soupe Vichyssoise. Doesn’t it look yummy?

And a day later, I made potage Crecy. No pic of that though. It was gone too quickly. :P
