Your presence is often the best present.
How crazy is that? But it came at a time when I was kind of wondering about something and acted as a sort of reinforcement; a little present from the universe at large (if you believe in that kind of thing).
And speaking of Stitch'N Bitch, one of our lovely members has been bringing along her holiday presents for the benefit of all the group:
This action shot depicts 667 yards of fingering weight merino/silk being wound for me! Yes!!!!
What shall it be? I want it to be something lacey, but hadn't really given it serious thought because the thought of winding it made me shudder. I'd like to make a shawl, but don't quite have enough yardage. I Do have more than enough for a shawlette, like the swallowtail that everyone has knit. But, I'm a little reluctant because the whole set up of the shawl is almost exactly that of the flower basket shawl that I already knit. Maybe I should head off and do something a bit different. Hmmm...
And speaking of heading off and doing something different, I start my first day of school tomorrow; well only one class. It's not the grad program that I am applying to, but it's one of the prerequisites I should take, a developmental psychology class dealing with infants and children.
And it was just so cool to suddenly remember that I was going to need a notebook. And then to remember that I should really find a binder. And then that I would need a book bag and a nice pen to boot! Oh - and that I should really look up what room it was going to be held in and directions to the place, and what book I would need - and you can see I have forgotten a little bit about being a student. ;-)
