Socks, Stole & A Nazi

SOCK TIME:Did I get you attention? Yeah I did huh? Well Lets start out with the AMAZING Sock Blockers that I received from Becky at Leggy Creations. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect work of art. I LOVE these things and I plan on using them! Aren't they great?

I also got some yummy yarn in the mail from the UK, Posh Yarn. I had this Colorway, Inferno, in my shopping cart and by the time I got to check out it was gone! So Dee looked for another skein for me, Lucky she had one and she sent it along! Thanks DEE, its BEAUTIFUL! Another pair of socks to work for my blockers :)

As you can see on the right hand side I am signed up for Mystery Sole 3.... Well I had my yarn picked out from my stash, it was from the lace swap I did last year.... I got to the 49th row and realized I hated how thin it looked and It began to STRIPE!!!! Oh NO!
I went to talk with a friend after class at Yarntopia and told her what I was working with.... Come to find out it may have been cobweb! I came home and checked the label....YUPP, a 50gm skein is 1200 yds... WOW! Its cobweb.... I'm very proud I made no mistakes! But into the frog pond it goes.... So I got some Malabrigo Baby Merino Lace, and I have to start all over again:( I hope I have good luck with it like I had with the cobweb :) Here is a picture at Row 33 before it started to stripe.....

Did you skip to this part?
My husband is trying to watch what he eats so he frequents the local Subway near his office and he noticed the "efficiency" of a particular employee. Chris calls him the "Subway Nazi" (you know, similar to the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld?)
This guy stands at the vegetable part of the serving line, and if you're not quick enough or you can't decide what you want he passes your sandwich along without putting vegetables on! Is that hilarious or what!
Apparently this guy is so efficent that if the line gets backed up at the cash registar he starts taking peoples vegetable orders BEFORE they pick thier bread!
I've got to go see this guy in action!

Thats all for now, have a good week! and I hope to be reading up on blogs this week ;)

Love the Subway Nazi.

Love your 3 guys in the hats! With the temperature here at about 98 degrees that was a very refreshing picture. LOL

I guess me and the subway guy wouldn't be friends. If there is one thing I hate is if my subway sandwich is not the way I(!) want it.

those sock blockers deserve to have a place on the wall as artwork when they're not in use. Love the green color of your MS yarn, but sad you had to rip. I wonder if my yarn is cobweb too. Ugh.

Love the sock blockers, and the yarn! Too funny about the subway nazi! I'm sure he'd hate me, I take forever making decisions;O)

Ha! Love the Subway Nazi. Ok, can I just say those sock blockers rock?! How cool are they? I'd just hang them on the wall as art.
