Grateful

I'm so lucky!Remember when I whined about wanting more yarn? Apparently I whined so loud that people all over the country could hear me. Look what came in the mail! A pack of cute cards and skein of Koigu for Jennifer, a bit of Cotton Fleece from Helen (and Ana), a bunch of Tahki Cotton Twist from Elizabeth. The Cotton Fleece is for swatching so that I can see if it will work for the cabled tank top that I so desperately need want. Elizabeth also sent me a baby sweater pattern that she wrote herself so that I can make a sweater for the little Loganberry. Thank you all so much!

But unfortunately for me, this last week and half has been one of THOSE weeks and a halves. I've been insanely busy with work and have had little time to pick up the needles. So yes, Elizabeth, I was able to get gauge--now I need to get time. I plan to cast on for real this week.

But I did manage to finish the two big knitting projects I have been dragging along: one Barbie and one secret. Barbie is blocking. The secret is on its way to its future home. FO reports later this week!

A bounty of fibery goodness! Hope things slow down for you so you can get back to knitting.

Thank you for your thoughts concerning our Ashe. We are missing him, but are comforted by the knowledge we made the right decision for him.

I hate having my life so busy there isn't time to turn around. Hope things quiet down a bit for you.

Can't wait to see Barbie! I also hope I'll be able to make it back to SnB sometime soon...July, perhaps?

Huh. When I whine on my blog I get a bunch of "there there" comments and nothing but bills in the mail. Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

(Or maybe it's that I never think to send other people stuff in the mail, and then I read their blogs and see that everyone else in the world thought to do so, and then I feel like a jerk. I didn't even manage to get you any damn macaroons this spring.)

oooooo, I'm having one of those weeks plus too! Maybe there's something up with the universe. Hrm...
I hope it slows down enough to get some knitting in! =)

Hope you can carve some time out for yourself soon. Being that busy is draining if you have to do it too long.
