Love the mint chocolate chip yarn- even if the color didn't come through right. :D

Your Exonumist shawl is beautiful. I like Wendyknits patterns too, the finished object looks complicated and beautiful. Her patterns are always clear and simple though. I can't wait to get her lace book in August!

Love the podcast. You are doing a great job. Love Nancy's yarn, I have two skeins of it myself. Was lucky enough to meet her before she moved to Anchorage.

Holy crap that was a lot of yarn

Would it be a conflict of interest if I entered the contest being your little sis? Not like you don't send me yarn and patterns anyway....
