Hanukkah Comes Early

Gracie has been a lovely nurse this week. I have been home every day and will stay home tomorrow too. Since I work with people who have compromised immune systems there is really no sense in going in and sharing all my germs.

The sad thing is that I have not felt like knitting at all. Until today, when I decided I would open the box from Knit Picks that was sent to me via my mom (who lives in Guam). I was going to wait until Friday night, but I just couldn't wait any longer. Can I just say I love Knit Picks and their amazing new Wish List! Yippee!!

The loot is so extensive it is almost embarassing. Suffice it to say that I have no need to go yarn shopping in the very near future. I should get my act together and put it all on Ravelry, but I haven't yet. Maybe tomorrow if I don't doze off all day like I did today. Got to love bronchitis.

I got the Carmen Banana Kit to go with my Mr. Foster. He is finished except for his tail. I made his robe, probably too big because I ran out of yarn (oops), still need to make his red pj's. Also got the Hugo Cap Kit. So excited about that one!!!
I appreciate all of your get well wishes, I would love that!


  1. So glad you're feeling better! We need to see pics of Carmen Banana when he's done. Happy Hanukkah!

  2. That's neat! Hope you feel better soon. It stinks being sick! Ella say's Hi to Gracie!

  3. Oh boy, do I sympathize!! I though I had a cold, but just as it started to go away, it came back full force. I guess it's probably the flu. I think about knitting, but just carrying my knitting bag to the sofa tires me out.

  4. You SOUND better... Great loot! Happy Hanukkah!

  5. Lucky girl! Now that's some fabulous mail.

    Hope you're feeling better today.
