More Thanks and Bits and Pieces

Thank you, KnittyOtter! See all this stuff? It came yesterday, courtesy of our favorite Otter. See that box full of yarn? It was only half full by the time the day ended.
And the needles? Half gone by the end of the day. The Boss and I were trying to figure out the tremendous interest in it this year and the best I can come up with is the two-year almost hiatus and the "Breck" factor. Remember the old commercial? "I told two friends, and they told two friends, and so on and so on and so on ..." That's what it is like! Thank you so much, KnittyOtter!!!

In other news, I have joined the Cabin Cove Knit along and will finally knit the lone skein that I have. Come join us and show off how nicely your Cabin Cove yarn knits up.
While I am plugging bloggers who sell things ... my cousin is now blogging as well as selling vintage sewing patterns. Go say hi and tell her Mama Squid sent you. (Yes, I have a lot of family members who blog. Cousin Elana does a business blog, Cousin Robert does a medical blog, kid brother Josh blogs for the NCAA and now this. It is only a matter of time before my wonderfully wordy father gets in to the business.)

And to prove that this is still a knitting blog ...for my kid sister. They are actually almost done, just the thumb is left on the left mitten. If I stop blogging I should be able to finish it tonight, block them tomorrow (to get rid of the horrid squishyness) and pop them in the mail this weekend. The hat will follow a week or so later. First I have to finish Squidette's scarf now that winter is actually here.

That's so great that you have relatives who KNOW what bogs are, and have them, too. (I mention I have a blog, and my mom tells me to go to the doctor to have him look at it.)
That was so generous of Knitty Otter to send such a large box of goodies for the kids.

That Otter is just the best! And I wish I'd known about the pattern cousin when I had that big bunch from that auction...I would have boxed them up and sent them to her.

Love, love, love those mittens! I must learn how to do that...and learning how to make a thumb would help too!*L*
