All Is Good in the World

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!

I sent you an email, I hope that it helps and/or makes sense.

Nice score on the yarn, that's so great that David noticed. As for gloves, you'll be fine! If you can do socks, and pick up stitches, you can knit gloves. I say go for it!
