thanks all around

Before I reveal what arrived today, I must thank G for giving me two awards - Nice Matters and You Make My Day. It's taken me awhile to mention this because I'm supposed to "pay it forward" and give the award to 10 other bloggers. I've been thinking about it and most of the people I've picked have already received one. So it seems lame to give them the award again. I'll keep working on it.

Another thank you goes out to Nikki. I won her blog contest and she sent me some lovely things.

A skein of STR, a catnip toy for the kitties, some Soak, and a little sheep.

Ricky woke up from a dead sleep (in the sunshine) and went straight for the toy.

I pried it out of his mouth to detach it from the cardboard backing and he'd slobbered all over it. Ewwww!

And a package arrived from Phyl. Thank you, Phyl! Ricky and Phoebe won her Central Park Footie contest and I get the prize.

Phyl sent me some lovely purple sock yarn - KP Memories and Amethyst supersock from Discontinued Yarns. Ricky was hanging around to see if there were more cat toys - see his feet by the yarn?

No knitting today. I'm trying to finish Geoff's quilt in the next few weeks now that some of my commission knitting is done. I still have a baby hat and a pair of baby booties to knit but those won't take too long.

I've started a top secret project - it's so secret even I don't have all the details yet. A friend is helping me with it because I don't know what I'm doing. LOL!

"I love you, Nikki - send more nip" - Ricky
