I is for Ipanema

OK, so I haven't actually BEEN to Rio, but one of my favorite dyers visited her sister there and dyed our most recent Mama Llama club shipment with the inspiration of Ipanema beach. Pretty, isn't it?!?! This is bamboo sock, and a mini skein of perfect sock in the same colorway - Bom Dia (Portuguese for Good Morning).

Thanks, Catherine, for awesome yarn AND a free pass on the ABC-Along! I was having a really hard time thinking of a good 'I' :)

An unphoto related I.. . . I is for Incentive! Krystofer is doing the AIDS ride in California. I saw his post on Ravelry and wanted to pass this along. His goal is to raise $5,000. As incentive to donate $10, he is giving away his yarn credit to his LYS! Seriously, it's a good cause already, but the possibility of that big a chunk of free yarn?! Go here to donate. . .. and go here to the Ravelry group if you want more details!
