Long Lost Mail

What's this?!?

Could it be the first issue of my FCEK that I ordered many moons ago? I tell ya, I never got a confirmation, or an email saying there was a delay, or nothing! I had given up...figured it was never coming. Hmpf!!
I also got my order from Jimmy Bean's wool yesterday...yay! I'm pretty happy with the service and they sent candy with my yarn. Impressive, huh? I ordered one more skein of noro to finish this...

...and three more in a different color for another one. I am determined to finish bag #1 TODAY! I've been so busy this past week that my knitting has suffered. Unfortunately there is no relief in sight until maybe December...*sigh* Between school work and the kids I don't have a whole lot of 'me' time. I didn't even make it to my knit night last Wednesday (but I'll be there tomorrow!!). I can't wait until the hubby gets back!
I've also started the ruffles scarf from Scarf Style I changed it a bit, I'm using LB chenille and it's working out quite nicely. The guage is a little bit bigger but hey...it's a scarf :o)

I'm not sure if I'm going to give it as a gift or not yet. My sister expressed her longing for a scarf to go with her winter coat, so I might put this one on hold to do one for her in a different color. Oh, and I still have to cast on for the Misty Garden.
Y'all might not hear from me again 'til Sunday or Monday. I am taking the kids to GA for a wedding. Please wish me luck in preserving my sanity while in the car for hours with 2 little boys! Take care until next time :o)

Glad you got your FCEK. Mine arrived damaged. I've had a bit of trouble with my subscription but I'm still holding out hope that it will improve.


Have fun at the wedding. Maybe the kids will play games while you drive. :)
