"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.
Heide!

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.
GoFugYourself &

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.
Betsy!

Wow! A trip to the Arctic?! Very good thing you're a knitter :O)

Thanks for doing Yarn Aboard with us! Hope life calms down for you soon!

I'm so glad the box made it there safely. Now that you've received your box, I can start commenting on your blog. I hope that you enjoy your yarn. It will be fun to see what you knit up.

That Guppy sweater is too freaking cute. Please make it! :)

Looking forward to lots of details about this potential Arctic Adventure the next time I see you!

My dog is not as good a model as yours. So cute!

Just in the car, now already in Iceland. Thank you so much, Becca! Your goodies were so carefully chosen, I am very very hapy with everything you sent! I can't wait to cast on with the yarn but I am also so excited to play with the magic sheep. I have some plastic ducks that change colour when changing from hot to cold water but the effect is wearing off on my nieces. I could also already use the needle protectors. Thank you again for the lovely surprise!
Hey, I am so excited for the Artic trip for you. Good luck!
