Cara has spoiled me! She sent me my absolute favorite colorway of Dream in Color yarn. Cara had heard me mention that I had fallen in love with this yarn when Kathleen had shown it to me and as luck would have it Knitty came out with the perfect pattern – Jeanie! thank you Cara – you’re the best!
Kris (and Dana!) at Sonny and Shear have a great online shop and do a lovely job of packing and shipping. It arrived promptly and was wrapped with bows and some fancy tea thrown in as well! what could be better?!
On the personal knitting front I am making good headway on the secret Cara’s baby project. I attempted to torture her a bit with the sound of my row counter – when we were on the phone I told her I was knitting a surprise for the bambino and held the ka-kching up to the phone. “You’re COUNTING ROWS??!!” she screamed. I am a row counter but don’t usually count them as I go, I count them once I get to a certain point.
In other news, D#1 called this weekend to inform me and Boar that she had her nose pierced. Don’t you just love these kids? I actually don’t object, I would get my own pierced if I thought I had a good nose for it (I think they need to be pointier than mine). Anyway that did provide a bit of excitement since Boar does not share my opinion. oh well, times they are a changin’!
