Denise, I can't imagine your friend's reaction! Sounds like you made a good choice on the sewing machine. Glad you have an outlet to help deal with stress. Hope things calm down soon and life is more peaceful for you.

Thanks for the update from Avon Lady! 

And thanks Mona. I sometimes wonder why I can't just stare things down and scare them out of my life! I guess sometimes, through it is the only way to go!

Oops Darski, I just posted my thoughts on life on your project page instead of here.

i just said that I have been frogging so many projects that have been sitting because I didn't like them, or I had made mistakes and they just sit there in project bags making you feel bad...so I pulled them out and made new balls of possibility!  Liberation! I think I have one left to go. A hat...the pattern is missing and I can't (maybe don't want) to figure it out. Oh to something fun.

So, here is what 90 skeins of the same yarn look like....

My friend was shocked. I should not be allowed to stay up late on the Internet. She lives about 90 minutes north, so now I have a reason to go visit her!! She has been resisting the temptation to break the seal without me, but I think she's going to check it out tomorrow. (She just finished a project, so why not?image.thumb.jpeg.c6662507bf7a2aad25f703784d0849b7.jpeg

So I finally got a hat done. I had a variegated yarn and a solid held together but then ran out of the solid at about where the ribbing started, so I had to use two of the variegated. I think it looks ok. Would you donate this?image.thumb.jpeg.8d7dbdb772a1373e34504aeb1b321ab7.jpeg

And one more...my amazing brother (the one who took me to a yarn shop in Sheboygan and the Ben Franklin in Oconomowoc while we were on our Packer vacation) recently went to Ireland. I didn't even think to ask but he brought me two lovely skeins of real wool from Ireland. He's so awesome.image.thumb.jpeg.cb12130930644929e00625c02052798e.jpeg

I think the hat looks fine.  In the picture I am not seeing anything bad or obviously different.  

What a box of yarn!  You are really going to have to go visit or maybe you both could meet in the middle somewhere so neither of you have to travel all the way.  Now I would really have loved to see her face when she opened the box.

Yes your brother is amazing at thinking to bring you back yarn.  Do you have any idea whst you will make with it?

Got at cat mat and a hat done. The hat is some Bernat chunky softie. The cat mat has 3 strands, one is homespun so it's soft.
