It's April 1st...

...and you know what that means. Time to choose another bag from the Brown Bag Sock Yarn stash! In the interest of fairness, I asked Emma to kindly take a back seat this month, as she got to choose January, February and March's bags. She graciously allowed Cooper and Tara to inspect the bags...

...but quickly nudged Cooper aside and took over.

Emma says "They were too slow! I had to help out!"

Just to make sure her bag would be this month's choice, she tore into that bag like a terrier with a pork chop.

I give you April's Brown Bag Sock Yarn choice: Knit Picks' Risata in Woodland Sage. Oooohh, pretty!

In case anyone is keeping track, no, I haven't finished March's sock yarn selection. I'm working on it...

In other news, I have been tagged by Steph from Not Just a Knitwit. Steph is a new blogger so go on over and check out her scrapbooking\papercrafting and knitting. You've got to see the cute little labels she made for chocolates - adorable!

Anyway, here are the rules:
1. Link to the person that tagged you.
2. Share 7 things people may not know about you.
3. Tag 7 people to share 7 things and link to them.
4. Let them know they've been tagged.

So, here are my Seven Things:

1. My first car was a 1967 Mercury Cougar, and I loved it. It was red with a white roof. I had to sell it when I needed a root canal.
2. Emma sleeps in the bed with me, and in the winter she is under the covers.
3. Even before I was a vegetarian, I would rarely order meat from a restaurant.
4. Spring is my favorite season, but April is my least favorite month.
5. My high school reunion committee has me listed as "missing" and that's the way I like it.
6. I have to be medicated to get on an airplane. Heavily medicated.
7. I have never been overseas (see #6) but as soon as they build a bridge across the Atlantic Ocean, I am going to pack the dogs in the car and head to the United Kingdom!

There you have it! If you're still reading this post, consider yourself tagged!

Fun random things! Good luck finishing March and casting on for April. Why is April your least favorite month?

I love your sock club selector. I'd try the same, but Sissy would eat the bag and Gretchen would toddle off with the yarn...

So fun! Emma makes a great selection again ;)

Steph said...

Very cool!!!

Stephanie said...

I wish I could get listed as missing! Especially when there's housework to be done. :)

I'm with you about airplanes. I would pretty much have to be knocked out to get on one.

Good job Emma!

I love your selection committee. I've started letting Fudge make selections for me. He takes it very seriously.

Spring is my favorite season and April is my least favorite month, too. I don't even know why.

I love this selection process (for the sock yarn and also for the tagging of bloggers).

I'll do it. I will.
