Many new things! (Picture heavy!)

So many new things to tell you about!
First off, last Tuesday while fretting about a Thursday doctor’s appointment, I ordered some shoes. On Wednesday when I got home:
However, I’m worried that my new shoes are too similar to some older shoes:
Slides are new; skimmer is old. Plus, I don’t think the slide really goes with my white skirt that I bought it to go with. However, I like them. Should I …
- return and get actual white shoes;
- keep and get actual white shoes;
- keep but don’t get more shoes, they look fine
On Saturday when I got to work at the Capitol Hill store for the 4th birthday party (and got to eat lots of cupcakes), Jessica stopped by and sold me some yarn she was destashing (apparently we got that backwards, with her selling me the yarn…):
Socks that Rock-Lightweight in Peaseblossom. See, I’m not totally not buying yarn for SOS’08.
Plus, tonight I got home and in my mailbox:
My order from Birds-n-Yarn! I ordered Friday, and Monday here it was! And with candy! You know how I love people that put candy in with my yarn!
Specifically I got:
Lorna’s Shepherd Sock – Grumperina; and:
Shepherd Sock – Raspberry Ice. Both of these colorways are only available through Birds-n-Yarn.
Don’t forget – tomorrow is July 1! That means Jimmy Bean’s will be putting up their special limited edition Lorna’s Laces colorway! And they also put candy in the package!
And finally, as proof that my hobby isn’t just collecting yarn:
A nearly finished Camellia! I have one sleeve cap to knit, and then sewing them into place (and the neckband). Well, a sleeve, some sewing, a neckband and …
Okay, so I need to block them hem, but do I really need to sew the side hem? I tried like 3 times to do this all seamlessly, but failed 3 times, and knit the lace part flat, then joined in the round (and subtracted a stitch on each side where there would have been a seam). But I sort of like the unseamed way. I know, I’m lazy. I’ll seam. I’ll whine about it, though!
