What I didn't realize is that there are only 98 yards in the skein. I came close, really, really close but not quite enough. But I figured that since Berroco is a major yarn supplier and it's not some hand dyed, art yarn that I'd be able to easily get some more. Right? WRONG! I went on the Berroco site to figure out what the color is called (my tag just had numbers on it) and what did my eyes behold? They have discontinued that colorway. ACK! So I quickly went to WEBS online and was thrilled to find that they had 3 skeins left. Can you believe it? Just 3! So I bought 2 because I figured I'll use just a little to finish my hat and then what will I do with it? So if I have 3 skeins I can make 2 hats and maybe one baby hat . . . . Hopefully it will arrive soon.
I also went to my vegetable garden this weekend. I've been scared to go up there because there has been a gopher in there destroying things. I hired a trapper service and they've already caught 3 but I'm still getting holes all over the lawns and in the veggie garden. It's very depressing. They've basically ruined the tomatos but the beans are still doing great. They ruined the Little Man's peas and he is very sad. He wants me to get three Anacondas and put them in the gopher holes. That might just work but I'm pretty sure I have to go to the Amazon to find Anacondas . . . . But look at the pretty sunflower that is getting ready to bloom!
And speaking of growing things - remember this little gal? Well she is growing up and I know her Aunt Bonnie wants to know how she is doing. For those of you who havn't "met" her yet, this is Miss K's Bearded Dragon named Saphira. I never thought I'd ever care about a lizard but actually I do! Maybe she could catch the gophers for me!
