Thanks Miss Secret Pal! I got your wonderful little gift yesterday. It was sitting on my doorstep waiting for me to come home. Thats the best part of doing this whole SP swap... to have unexpected packages arriving at your door! Not to mention "meeting" someone new and getting fun gifts! So what was inside, you ask? Well, there were four vanilla and lavender scented candles, and a couple candle holders (although one got smashed somewhere along the way... pooh), some butterfly notecards, post-its in the shape of an M, and a skein of beautiful ribbon yarn in dark purple and blue hues. Its gorgeous... I wish I had more of it! I think it will make a nice drop-stitch scarf. Thanks!!!
Last night, I also finished Tivoli!! I knew I had to finish it before the Knitting Olympics started today (OMG is it today already??) It fits perfectly, and although it is rolling a little bit around the neckline, it almost looks like its supposed to do that. But I think I will iron it out a bit more. I used Knitpicks Shine in cream and size four needles. It really is a nice design!
So in an hour and ten minutes, I will be casting on for the Knitting Olympics. I've swatched and I've got my needles ready! Good luck fellow Olympians!
