Goodbye Kurt and Forgotten Wool

Kurt Vonnegut, one of my favorite writers, has passed away. You can find more info here :(

Okay, back to knitting....

A few weeks ago I had one of those "pick crap up from the post office" postcards in my mailbox. This ticked me off because my mailman usually puts packages and such in the convenient locked parcel boxes located directly next to the mailboxes. I couldn't think of anything I had ordered and was looking to be delivered so I kept finding reasons for not picking up the mystery package. Finally, I got off my lazy butt two days ago and picked up this:

Extremely beautiful wool from Uruguay that I totally forgot about ordering. This is two skeins of super bulky hand dyed woolly wonder that was only $6.99 per skein from Southwool. I cannot wait to get this on some needles!! Of course, it has to wait until "the project" is done.

Speaking of which.....the "project" keeps on keepin on. I spent ALL of last Saturday working on it until my hands were sore. I have completed one portion of it and have started the next. I'm hoping to have this new section done by next Tuesday (which is probably an impossible goal.) I would have a pic of the completed section but, apparently, it is a cat magnet. The second pic is of the beginning of the second section.

Oooh....super exciting!

I guess that is all for now. I really should be at the needles instead of at the computer right now or refereeing the kitty wars currently taking place in my abode.
