Return from the left coast

Oregon was fantastic (our flight was cancelled Wed. due to Chicago weather so we only got back late last night). We had a wonderful time with my Grammy and the weather was gorgeous. The big news is that we found and bought a house! It's a lovely home in a fantastic neighborhood very close to where Matt will be working. We will close in July - it's going to be hard to wait!

We got back to our two angry cats (they hate it when we travel) and a giant pile of mail rather late last night, but I did have time to see that some more yarn magically appeared in my house while we were gone. :) This picture is just a peak. Any guesses as to what yarn it is? I'll do a full post on Monday with the Rockin' Sock Club kit (Yowza!), the Pick Up Sticks Sock Club kit (Lovely!), and the other various non-club yarn. Tomorrow's my birthday and I plan on spending the whole day knitting! :)

Happy Birthday!! Hope you have pictures of the house to share w/ us on Wednesday. Love the yarn! Can't wait to see the socks you knit out of it. I bet it was American that cancelled your flight!! I flew to SF on Wednesday out of O'Hare but it was on United, so we went on time.
