Here we are later... Welcome to North Carolina - Green grass, green trees and warmer weather.
So anybody who has driven south on the 95 knows the highlight is Pedro. Pedro is the icon of the drive down 95. South of the Border (this is where the border of South Carolina is) is a milestone on the drive.There are mucho billboards alerting you to the exact mileage to get to South of the Border. It is a countdown of sorts.
Here we are! Restaurants, Hotels and Hot Tamales OH MY!
I don't have pictures of us arriving in Georgia or Florida. I was doing some driving then while DH was sleeping. But then I had to break out the light for some nighttime knitting.

Drawer One: In the picture below is actually some needlepoint yarn that was given to my by DH grandmother. It's 100% wool and I was thinking that I could felt a bowl for her. I just have not gotten to it yet. I will though soon. Below you also see the only 2 skeins of koigu that I own. That was a gift as well from my friend Susan. There's a few things of sock yarn here too. That's one of the things on the list for 2007. Socks. I must make myself a pair of stinking socks.
Drawer Two: Here on the left is the yarn for my sweater that I'm going to try to make for myself. It was on the cover of the Creative Knitting Magazine. I talked about it on my blog here. Also, for those of you following my blog, the purple yearn on the right toward the back is the yarn from that blanket that my mother made me frog. Really, it was the right thing to do.
Two cases of needles on the left. Also on the right in the bin is all my circular needles. Addi Turbos in one section and all others in the other section. I keep all the packages so they fit neatly in there.
You may have noticed that there were no Sugar n Cream in any of those drawers. That's because they have their own home outside of the cabinet. There's too much (especially my sister Linda bought me a bunch for christmas.
So that's all I got (for now). Impressed??!!
So remember when I bought this ? The door was broken and I've been waiting for a proper replacement since last year! Well.... long story short, they had to replace the entire thing so it was a proper time for me to reorganize all my crafts and yarn and things. Wasn't my DH scared when I had emptied it all and he saw everything that I so neatly 'hid'.
