Feeling the love*

Yesterday was a good day, knit-wise. You know somebody loves their knitted gift when it makes them cry, as long as they aren't screaming and threatening you with a restraining order. McSassy loves the Monster Booties and that makes me happier than I can tell you.

I also received a mystery gift certificate from my favorite LYS**. I'm pretty sure it was from the tennis friend I gave the knitting lesson to, but since she is the world's worst at answering her emails, I may never know. Thanking you anyway, Dana.

I really need to get my butt in gear and swatch for my Ravelympics project. This means, of course, that I will instead start some other project completely unrelated. WARNING: This tendency could be contagious. I have a yummy skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Silk Thread II, which I dyed myself at Knot Hysteria, that is begging to be knitted into a shawl or wrap. Please do not waste your time reminding me about the Woodland Shawl that is 90% complete. I don't like being confused with facts. Meanwhile, I'm on a quest for the perfect baby blanket yarn. Suggestions are welcome.

I'll leave you with some eye candy:

*Yes, I know there's a lot of linkies in this post, but trust me, they are all fabulous!
**Local Yarn Shop, for those of you who don't knit YET.
