Red eye?

I didn't sleep much last night - one of those nights where you wake up with your mind racing about everything you've gotta do, rummaging through the back corners of the brain for random worries. And yes, I did a little late-night knitting. So I'm hoping some home-brewed Starbuck's will cure my morning "red eye."

Which reminded me, I have this great photo of my DD making creative use of a couple of cherry sourball candies. And I thought, what a great time for a photo caption contest!

To enter the contest, just post a comment with a creative caption for the photo above. I will announce the winner on July 1. Winner receives a full bag of Louisa Harding Kashmir DK (merino/cashmere blend). We choose the color - I promise it will be a good one!

Happy captioning!

'Aaaaah, I promise to do better', she screams in terror as she sees the alien disembark from starship UFO to take her away to yarnfree planet WIP as punishment for failing to finish projects.

The look on my face when John mentions 'yarn' and 'budget' in the same sentence.
