Who says I'm Fickle?

Tuesday it was all about the yarn.

Wednesday was all about the Atomic Force Microscope, but we won't speak of it. Thursday it is all about the needles. I found a top secret distributor of much heralded wooden circular needles I'll call 'Voltz and Mine.' Do not ask me where I found them. I am silent as a stone. I haven't told anyone (except Anmiryam and Roberta. Whoops). I can be bribed.
So I find myself creating new projects just to use the needles. Roberta brought me back some lovely yarn from Chile appropriately named "Free Time" [insert laughter here]. I decided it is the perfect yarn for the potato chip scarf.

But the yarn is fingering weight, so if it's not adult sized as I will save it for my future fictional baby.
Who will also have to have the newest mortgage payment priced designer bag if she ever has a chance of getting in the right pre-schools.
I also switched the Shaped Triangle over to the Voltz and Mine needles.

My only complaint is I have to slightly push the stitches over the join. But it's only a meager problem and thusly I declare these needles beyond reproach.
Yarn Haul
The Husband bought a considerable amount of yarn from a department store(!) in England. He reported back on what he purchased, but I fainted after I heard the words "Cashsoft" and didn't hear the entire checklist of yarn. What I want to know is why have I been buying myself yarn all this time when he is the yarn snob of the family?
Random
Movie Recommendation Smoke Signals, A movie as savory on the palate as fry bread.
When I win the big Powerball Lottery Jackpot(that I haven't bought a ticket for, but my chances are just as good) I will buy this pen.
