I got some pretty awesome Christmas/B-day presents from some pretty awesome people. Somehow, David knew I was coveting this Cherry Creek Farm Icelandic Wool -- actually I saw it on someone else's blog in December, but I cannot remember who posted it, I'm sorry! I'm thinking it will become a nice hat and scarf or ... yikes! ... gloves! But the thought of all those DPN's scares me.
The guru sent me these fabulous Monkey socks, which I am wearing right now, and also the Yarn Harlot's latest book.
Jess (who I finally saw again last night at the Bella Vita knitting meet-up) gave me a subscription to a spinning magazine. Now I just need to get a wheel -- our spinning class was cancelled because Jess and I were the only ones who signed up, so I have to learn with a little help from my friends. And to that end, my parents and parents-in-law gave me a little bit o'birthday cash to help me on the road to the wheel.
I'm working on Shedir and having a bit of trouble at the point where the repeats start. I know Schrodinger completed it, I'm going to have to ask her to tag in and help!
