Mom and I still got our errands done this morning, but by the time I got home, I wanted nothing more than to close myself off in a dark, silent room for a few hours.
A four hour nap later and it's still not gone. I'm going to try to get some knitting in tonight, but I suspect I'll just end up stretching out on the couch with a purring cat on my head (the purrrfect headache therapy)
Despite the pounding in my head and the title of the post, I do actually have some pictures to share. When I dropped Mom off, I nipped down to the dye studio and snagged a skein of yarn off the drying rack.

I loved the yarn when Mom first dyed it, and as soon as I saw it knit up, I knew I had to have a skein. It seems like everyone else felt that way too - we've been getting requests left and right for it. She just dyed up a big batch, some on Alley Cat and some on Barn Cat. I figured I better grab a skein while I had the chance and before she gets sick of making it!
Mom had also snagged me a skein of the Sanguine Gryphon's Codex in one of her swaps.
I've been wanting to try the Codex for a while. It's a single ply worsted 52% Silk/48% BFL. This colourway is Delirium. I think it will be perfect for a cowl to go with the beret and mitts I have made from Kroy FX.
I still have two skeins of the Kroy tucked away, but I think the Codex will be much nicer around the neck. Now I just have to resist the urge to cast on!
