Yay for lots of things

Yay for Shelley and I both getting to go to knitting on friday. And yay for us getting to do our exchange from the Knitdishcloths yahoo group. :-) I took pictures of both the cloth I made her and the cloths (yes, thats plural) she made me. AND a soap sack. So very, very generous. And I love them all! And I'm glad she liked the squid soap and the knitting note cards I put with the daqueri cloth I made her. Anyway, I will post the pictures when there are enough pics on my camera to justify hooking it up and downloading them.

Yay knit-knit-knitting away at work the last couple of days. I'm very happy with the progress I've made on the baby blanket I'm working on. Della complimented my ability to work on it and talk at the same time at the borders group on friday, which felt really good. Its really that the pattern basically repeats the same two lace rows with different numbers of start stitches, then you purl back. After having to unknit 3 rows of it a while back, I have been pretty careful to check that the pattern is linig up correctly every little while. I think I am also used to knitting distracted because I knit at work a lot and often have to drop what I am doing and then come back later and figure out where I was.

I had thought I was going to come home and knit some more this evening while I watched a dvd of Monk, but instead I went through and shredded a bunch of old papers. I'm trying to go through things, get rid of stuff I don't need and get organized. Speaking of moving, Shelley also gave me a going away present! I couldn't believe it! Its the knitpicks Gloss I was going to order to make the thermal from last winter's knitty! Its such a beautiful green and its soooooooo soft. I love it, I love it, I love it.

Ok, I really need to go to bed. Back to work at 9 tomorrow. Weeeeee.
