This one's for you, Heike!

These pictures look like mug shots of Sam. It's nothing personal Heike, really! ;o)

I really wanted to get a cute one for you, but today was not the day to take pictures.


Sam's getting frustrated and Biko's feeling left out. The more I shoo shoo shooed her away, the more she wanted to be in front of the camera. ;o)


Looking cute all the time is not easy!
Why all this you ask?
Some time ago, Heike agreed to go shopping for me. You see, she lives near where the lovely Trekking is being manufactured. You know how much one ball of Trekking yarn goes for around here?! Well, for the prize I paid for these 10 balls, I would have had 3 balls in my basket at my LYS! I gave her carte blanche, to buy 10 balls of Trekking for me. And she did. Look at these lovely colorways!
There was also this very sexy post card and a bag of Harribo goodness, but that didn't make it to the photo shoot. They are just too delicious to resist even for a second. ;o)
Thank you, Heike!

Ooooooh! What a haul! Lucky you to have a friend who lives so close. Enjoy!

Debi said...

Wow! That's a lot of beautiful Trekking!

Oh, what a treat! So many pretty colors.

By the way, I ended up binding off my knee high the way you suggested. It worked out perfectly, I love it. Thanks :-)

Wow, super Wolle! Super Karte! *g*
Würd ich beides ins Haus lassen!
Lieben Gruß vom Platypus!

Heike said...

Hallo Monika,

*griiiiins* Oh wie süss sind die Fotos! Ich glaube, Sam ist noch ein wenig am schlafen und hat seinen Auftrag nicht ganz verstanden...
Nö - nehme ich nicht persönlich! Ich musste laut lachen als ich heute Deine Seite aufgemacht habe - herzlichen Dank für die Bilder und ich freue mich, dass Dir die Farben gefallen.
Der Typ auf der Karte ist ja so ganz niedlich, aber viel zu schlank zum kuscheln - nix für mich!

Liebe Grüsse von Heike im Urlaubsstress

Nice to have friends in far away places. Love all that Trekking. I have never knit with it cause it is so pricey. Poor Sam looks like he is being punished in the first photo but by the last shot all seems well.

Hege said...

Your lucky! Beautiful yarn you've got :)

Pat said...

WOW - she has picked some beautiful yarn....what a fun package to open!!
(and it looks like Heike has good taste in men too!)

hakucho said...

sgeddes said...

Looks like Heike has great tase. Those are some lovely colors. I'm looking forward to seeing what you knit up with them!

Tracy said...

Yippee Skippee what a score, you lucky lucky girl!

Karen said...

WOW! I love your Trekking (I'm knitting the orange myself right now) collection. Trekking here goes for $14 a ball (not the priceiest of sock yarns for sure). Have fun knitting it all up, can't wait to see what it becomes.

Aw, Sam & Bilko are so adorable! Lucky you wit the treking. I haven't had the pleasure of knitting with it yet, but I have every intention of picking some up next weekend when I visit my LYS.

Oh Monika, Du Glückskind!! Das Garn sieht toll aus und die jede Farbe für sich ist klasse. Ich finde es von Heike sehr nett, dass sie Dir das Garn zu einem Schnäppchenpreis besorgen konnte. Und die Doggiefotos sind sind einmalig. Ich habe mich fast schlapp gelacht.Viel Spaß beim verstricken der neuen Wolle.

Dipsy said...

I can't believe how cute Sam is on these pics - though he seems so *not* amused! Your doggies are the most beautiful ones indeed!
And awww, what a yarn treat - I adore the colors!

T-Mom said...

*lol* They can sure play the martyr, can't they? All that wounded dignity. And yes, sibling rivalry always comes into play!

Beautiful yarn--I don't know how you'll decide which to start first. Nice kind of dilemma to be face with.

monica said...

Ok, is she looking for any new friends to shop for. I love the trekking, the post card is nice too but the yarn really caught my eye more.

Kathy said...

Ooo la la...I'll take one of the man on the postcard, please. :)

All of the Trekking is GORGEOUS!

The pics of Sam made me laugh out loud. My Sam does the same thing when I try to take pictures of her. For every attractive picture I post of her, there are at least five others that were mugshots.
