First Week of the Year......

......And I got absolutely, positively, NO knitting done.  I truly meant to do it, but I have been in "Clean Sweep" mode since the first.  I have managed to get rid of 2 shopping bags full of yarn.  The first bag went to the "Care To Knit" organization, that collects yarn and makes gifts for people who are less fortunate.  The second bag went to a family friend who is using knitting as a way to cope with here mother's death.  Isn't knitting so wonderful, how a skein of yarn can solve many ails. 

So, I have been waiting patiently for my Knitpicks order to arrive.  The postal worker did NOT ring my doorbell, and just left a slip that he came and noone was home.  My mother was at home the entire day.  Then I asked them to redeliver it on Friday, and that didn't happen.  There was also the threat of 3-6 inches of snow on Friday, but we ended up getting a light dusting.  No excuse!  So, I went to the Post Office on Saturday morning and picked up my friggin' package.  What is is with government run entities in New York this winter?  First the Department of Sanitation, and now the Post Office.  Come on! 

Well, luckily I didn't have anything wrong with my Knitpicks order.  The only fluke was that I ordered 2 "Into the Woods" kits by accident.  So, hmmmmm.... is anyone interested in taking it off my hands?  PM me on Ravelry, or email me.  We can discuss payment and shipping. 

I also got Stroll in Golden Glow Tonal, and Ash as well as Chroma Worsted in Midwinter.

I am excited to use my new yarn.  Stay tuned.  Casting on something as we speak.
