It's early-ish on a Sunday morning. Well, no lie, it's proper brunch time, but I am the only one awake.
I want to get stuff done today. We did a bit yesterday, but we could have done more. We played a whole lot of Mario Party 8. We ordered pizza. It was that kind of day.
Right now, with all of the other adults in bed, I'm thinking about the possibilities of today. I finished the knitting portion of my pirate hat, only felting remains. I can cast on Norberta, but only if I can find size 6 needles. Went through the addi collection last night. No addi 6's, but I'm sure they're in my straights collection... I have no idea where my straights collection is. Worse comes to worse, I go to AC Moores today and pick up some 10 inch Bates. I probably should, in any case. I didn't leave the house yesterday.
Anyway, I do have more than sleepy, yet insightful, drivel this morning. I want to introduce you to my Secret Pal!
My SP10's name is Stacey, of Peaknit, and she took very good care of me :) I have a fantastic collection of Wisconsin post cards adorning my cube, two wonderful skeins of sock yarn, one fantastic bundle of unspun Merino, lots of yummy chocolate (that's a lie. I no longer have that. Sorry), some very pretty stitchmarkers, one of Cookie's patterns... well, let me show some pictures. You guys respond to pictures, right? If you've read this far take a moment with me and make dirty looks at those who just scrolled ahead looking for pictures. Ready? Now. ... ... ... Feels better, doesn't it? It's their own loss, really, this stuff is brilliant!
These are from the last package. :D Little wedding favors for Chris and I (jeez, this is getting close), some gorgeous fiber from Fat Cat Knits, and a sock blocker with a sock! Let me say right now, those sock blockers are cool, and they are infinitely cooler wearing a sock! The three packages Stacey sent me were all met with giddy squees, and I'm glad to finally know who she is, and have her blog to read, and her Ravelry to... ravel in. I cannot wait to put up pictures of the socks that will be made with the yarn she has gifted me :) Thank you, Stacey :)
The best part of these SP's are the friends I have made. You all know who you are, and you're a rocking bunch. I will not be taking part in the next SP as I have to focus on the wedding. Now that my aunt Bev is done with my cousin's wedding she's ready to help, and the help is nice to feel. Chris's mom want's to get going, too. Hopefully, by next week, we'll have all the where's figured out and we can finally start to make things happen. I have the site for the wedding, we just need the site for the reception. Luckily, my dad has even more friends in Brunswick. Everything will come together.
OK, I'm going to go get those things done. The other adults in my house are now awake, and I have even been served breakfast. Everyone take care.
