I was so excited when I got home from work today to find a nice little box waiting on the doorstep for me. It was from Chris, my prize package from her Haiku contest.
The yarn is a hand dyed wool in the craziest pink I've ever seen. Now those who know me know that I'm not fond of pink, but with the black it's not bad. I've already started knitting it. I'm going to try the Midwest Moonlight scarf from Scarf Style.
There were other goodies inside the box as well. 2 CDs, a really funny card, a book that I'm looking forward to reading, a bar of chocolate with Chaos eyes on it, a cute little note pad and a so cute you could die sheep pez dispenser.
On my way to my parent's house for spaghetti dinner I stopped at the store and found something I've been looking for for a while now. I'm not too fond of the off-white carpeting in my room so I've been on the look out for a throw rug. I finally found one that goes perfectly with my decor.
Here's the room before:
And here's after:
It's really soft and has all the colors in my room. Soft green like my bed spread, black like my curtains and closet cover and red like my papasan chair. You can see a closeup of the design in the pictures above. The picture sucks but I really like the way it makes my room look. And no, my room is not as small as it seems.
