Random Friday

I've decided to start a new weekly tradition, along the lines of WIP Wednesdays. I'm calling it Random Fridays (sadly, there can be no alliteration since no day of the week starts with "r" unless I call it Random (f)Ridays, but that might just confuse people). Anyway, the point of these posts is to get me posting more often by giving me an opportunity to blog about whatever I feel like.

Today I feel like telling you about a recent purchase I made. I logged onto Ravelry one day and discovered that a new shirt had been released, this one with a graphic of Ravelry mascot Bob peeking out from a pyramid of yarn. I was so smitten that I immediately called Heather to tell her all about it and see if she wanted to order one too. The excited shopping had to be put on hold when Heather's husband informed me that she was having a nap. But she called me back within half an hour and we joyfully squealed together over the cuteness that is that shirt. We could not resist and ordered it immediately lest it sell out. The shirts arrived a few weeks later and I wore mine for the first time when we put up the Christmas tree.  As you might recall, that was just after we got our new camera and I had to get Pete to take a picture of me showing off my new shirt.
I feel like Clark Kent revealing the superhero costume beneath the street clothes. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful and warm weekend (there, I got my alliteration in). I've been feeling under the weather so I'm planning on staying in and knitting on my yummy Clapotis.

I am wearing mine today! It just took us 4.5 hours to drive to Mom and Dad's... usually a max of 2.5...

Is it spring yet?

Cute! Bob cracks me up! I bet that graphic was inspired by real life events.
