Pattern Coming, Yarn Coming

Knitting Knews Item 1: I got an email saying that my sock pattern is on the way. Actually in the mail. In the mail!
Knitting Knews Item 2: I just won an ebay auction for 5 skeins of what may very well be The Most Incredible Ribbon Yarn In The Universe. It's called Lana Grossa "India" and is an astonishing array of blues and silvers. I have big big plans for this, and they relate to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I hope this wakes up my knitting interest again. And by the way, I spent $3 more than I probably needed to because it was one of those Dutch Auction things and I didn't bother to read the definition and explanation of Dutch Auctions because a)I was excited b)Dutch Auctions are confusing as all get out, at least to me and c) it was about to end and I just wanted to bid now and strategize later. So just a word to the wise that they work a bit differently than the regular auctions and it might behoove you to read the help info first if you ever want to bid in one. But, even so, I will soon have The Most Incredible Ribbon Yarn In The Universe and it has made me happy. That's worth an extra $ 3, surely.

Thanks, Leah. I'm still sketching out my idea on the back of an envelope. ;)
