the postperson rang

The doorbell rang this morning - not unexpected since I have one outstanding yarn order and hubby's waiting for his Forza 2 Xbox game. But the box that I received said KnitPicks. Gladys ordered a bunch of stuff for me and for herself but I wasn't expecting it to arrive here. So Gladys - I have your needles. Lemme know if you need them anytime soon and I can drop them off (and pick up my sock yarn). I love the sock book. I do not own many issues of IK so this book is a good buy for me. And I couldn't resist the Harlot's newest book. I took it with me to work this afternoon but it was busy busy and I didn't even manage to crack it open.

It's Wed and I'm skipping another knit nite. I got Ricky to eat something at noon and shortly afterwards, there was vomit and litterbox nastiness. I called the vet but couldn't get an appt. before work. So I am home tonite watching him like a hawk.
While I was at work, I did a little shopping. Ooops. I think 6 and a half metres of fabric came home with me. I couldn't resist - the colours are really pretty. I'll try to get some pix when there's daylight.

Hooray, they're here!

I'm working on a few things at the moment, so I thought it would be best to get the package to you — I'm not in a desperate hurry for the needles. :-)

I'm so sorry to hear about Ricky! I hope he gets better soon — this has been a hard one to figure out.

Sorry about Ricky, all my good thoughts are with him!

I hope Ricky is well soon you are having such a rough time with him at the moment , I haven't bought Yarn Harlot's latest book, what is it like ? I have been thinking about buying the sock book, my finger hovered over the Amazon BUY button a couple of times , I don't know how long I can hold out ........
