Nearly finished
Tomorrow I'll be finishing the last part of my kit for Olive. I just finished wrapping everything. Today I bought her some last minute goodies. I've even included a special surprise for someone smarmy! I didn't realize how much I got her, since I accumulated it all over time. But, WOW, is she going to be spoiled!!! I took pictures of all of the small stuff together to send to the Best Kits coordinator, but I won't send them until I have the pictures of the finished bag. If I can get the bag done early enough, hopefully I'll be able to send my kit tomorrow!!! (Damn the changed kit deadline, I could have still had the DA badge :<)

I also just bought a skein of 100% Silk yarn that is TO DIE FOR. I can't stop touching it. I just wound it into a yarn cake today, and I was ready to cry because somehow it got a really bad knot in it. I spent 2 hours getting the knot out :< But now it's a started project! I have to share the shawl with my mom because she wouldn't stop touching it either, LOL. When I showed it to her she said, "And what are you making for me out of that?"

P.S. - This is quite possibly the funniest and most useful Knitty article I've ever read!
