"March"ing On

Life has quickly gotten the better of me. In short (pictures to follow tonight I hope):
I applied for a trip to the Arctic.

I received a final package from my Knitty Mellow Pal - I have some gorgeous blue-green mohair yarn and 2 skeins of Noro Silk Garden, "Simple Knits with a Twist", and fabric - an awesome pal!

I received the "Yarn Aboard box from Jessica which had some of Claudia Hand Painted Yarn in the most gorgeous shades of blue / green and a lantern moon bag (so spring like) - my box is currently waiting in the car to go to the post office.

My dog was the cutest little German-American posing as an Irish-dog on St. Patrick's Day.

My internet has been up and down. I have to replace the router.

I've been working on Daffodils and Tulips and bunnies.

I'm going into New York City this weekend - hopefully I'll find the Japanese book store for crafty things. The empire state building is on the list. Not sure what else.

I think this is a great idea
1. A blog which you think people have not yet discovered.
Life in Purple, and for crafty (not strictly knitting) mylittlemochi, ohsewpretty, wee wonderfuls, SewingStars

2. A blog whose author lives close to you physically.

3. An unusual or weird animal picture.
My dog puts up with a lot of me trying to pose him. Not that he's not naturally photogenic mind you!

4. An entry that made you laugh and got you strange looks from your family or co-workers.

5. An idea you wish you thought of.
Project Colorswap - but I am proud to be a part of it!

6. Something you'd like to knit.
Odessa, GuppySweater, Bulky Cabled Sweater, Kepler - the list keeps growing...

7. A picture of something you consider beautiful.

8. A blog whose author you'd like to one day meet in person.
Dani, Christine, Lolly, ThreeOliveMartini

9. A blog of someone you have already met in person.


Mail Catch Up

It's a surprise snow day - well, not a complete surprise - I thought we would get an early dismissal, not the full day off! Excellent. I've been meaning to post to say thank you to Amanda - she sent chocolates and heart soap (in my new favorite scent - Body Shop strawberry) - I have signed up for Yarn Aboard!) and she needed to swap the person to whom I am sending the box, no sweat - but she sent the goodies anyway!! How sweet!

Over the weekend I got a package from Gail (that's her blog, her knitting blog is here - so cool!) - my Fiber Godmother - ooooh! I am so excited! There's Rowan Recycled Chunky and Biggie (I've been dying to try!), sweets, soaps, candles, and sheep stitch markers! This has been a really fun swap, and my "Godmother" was above and beyond!

I recently finished "reading" Dirty Girls Social Club by Alisa Valdes Rodrigues - quick, enjoyable.

I finished the booga bag felting-wise, but need to finish the straps part - and today I finished a daffodil - (pattern here) - how cute is that! And easy too! I'll be doing lots of these I think. Gotta find some ribbon to toss it into the wash.
