Pretty in Purple

When I went to check my account, the bank hadn't returned my money as planned. So I went into the bank yesterday and had a massive, giant, pissed off fit. After planting myself firmly in front of the manager and 45 minutes of arguing, the bank returned my money right there and then. They also agreed to reduce the 90 day investigation to 10. What the hell happened to good customer service?

I hate to admit it, but getting into a big argument like that gives me a rush. I don't go looking for fights, but when I find myself in one, its like I become super animated... I want to scream BRING IT ON! Anonymous hubby claims I should have been a lawyer.

Anyhoo, I found a lonely skein of Homespun sitting in my stash. Homespun rocks for scarves because it works up soft and fluffy. What more can anyone want in a scarf? I know a lot of people hate Homespun, but I can honestly say I like it! I used the shells scarf pattern I've used a gazillion times before.

(my pics are oddly small)

I threw it up on Etsy to see how a scarf might do and my very own cousin bought it, haha. Talk about family love.

Quick question - do any of you use eye cream? If you do, can you recommend one? A new brighter light bulb in the bathroom has revealed that the perfection that was once me (like back in utero) has begun to age, especially around my eyes.

Lord grant me the serenity to accept the wrinkles I cannot change, good cream to smooth the ones that I can, and the wisdom to know the difference!

P.S. - the yarn I used in the hats was Lion Brand Suede in blue and TLC Essentials in Light Green and Art (the variegated).

I'm glad you're wealthy again! :)

I need to start using eye cream. I turned 30 this year, and I have a feeling things are going to start catching up to me.

I love my eye cream. I use Mary Kay eye firming cream. It is the best think. I have been using it for 8 years. So I started using it before I started selling Mary Kay. Everyone know that I know who uses it swears by it.

Very pretty scarf! I'm totally jealous of how you can crochet with fluffy yarns. I love them, but just can't see my stitches in them. : (

I'm glad the bank gave you your money back, although it's a shame that you had to argue with them for nearly an hour to get it back!

It should not have taken them that long to return your money...they just wasted precious time.
Lovely scarf!
I don't regularly use eye cream, I should have started 10 years ago :p
