I didn't get to the computer yesterday because I spend most of the day on my back.  I was having a dizzy spell and the meds took all morning to work.  I was able to sit up and walk around noon.  It wasn't the way I wanted to spend the day but the best laid plans.......

So, I'll share two photos today to make up for yesterday.  Here's the first one I took as I left work today.  It's 8th street on the corner of 8th and Locust.  If you look down the street, you can see the holiday lights. 

They put them up and turned them on right after Daylight Savings Time ended.  It's a bit early for my tastes but I'm sure the city has it's reasons.

And then today when I got home and there was a box on the front step.  Pk said "pants" since he's waiting for some pants we ordered him.  I said "No, it's my Christmas knitting package from the Unique Sheep".

I forgot that I ordered this in July.  It's a limited color and a special pattern.  The yarn is merino/tencel and is one of their 4 skein series.  The shawl pattern that came with it is pretty and looks like it'll be interesting.

There was also a skein of red/green cotton and a pattern for a wash cloth, some Frankinsense &
Myrrh scented soap and some tea (plus a clear needle sizer and some bells).

It was a nice surprise.  I look forward to playing with it but the socks have to come first.

Oh well that's just brilliant, to order stuff months ahead of time and surprise yourself. I should do that.

I don't think the city has put up their lights yet, but I'm sure its coming.

Hope you're better.

What fun yarn!

Hope the dizziness stays away.

Actually, I don't too much mind the early holiday stuff this year. It's getting me into gear for the season. I made out a gift list yesterday.
