Wow - the week has been long, tiring, a plain drag - but the mail has been delightful! I traded Wollmeise with the Knitting Bandit - my Fratello for her Wild Thing Poison #5 - a great trade - but she snuck in a bunch of wonderful surprises on me - what a pick me up, bloggers are so darn nice. She sent along a book to read (I'm doing great on the 52 books self-challenge!), a bag of gummies - only 4 Weight Watchers Points if you're counting;), some cool pattern tamers and some chart tape - I haven't tried either of those last two things, so I am thrilled to add them to my knitting bag! The generosity was touching. Thank you!
Generally, I am thinking Michigan bloggers are just nice, cool people. I mean you have The Plucky Knitter (who has a new online shop), Cinnamonamon, The Knitting Bandit of course, flint knits (I think), Knitterella and Knittingma - I know I am missing many, but recently I have run into a lot of nice MI peeps. There are great bloggers everywhere of course, I have just had a rash of really nice contacts with MI and wanted to shout out.
I also got a couple other great packages...
this probably needs little explanation - Lowenzahn, Mitternacht and Miss May.
And the first installment of the Woolgirl Sock Club - what a treat.
Gorgeous yarn from Mama Llama inspired by Georgia O'Keefe, notecards, a cool bag, a stitch marker and a great pattern - it's a great start!
I hope to have an actual project to show soon, I have been a slacker knitter this week - I have been fiercely dragging this week - change of weather? bad night sleep? could it be staying up until midnight reading on a work night is a bad idea? good grief.
