I'm a bit disorganized as I stated before so I feel the need to introduce myself. I am 40 something (a woman never reveals her age). A mother of 4 kids, 3 who are grown and one mid-teen still at home. I have been knitting since the age of 9 yrs. Taught by my mom after she caught me trying to knit on her very first aran sweater still on the needles. (Not pretty by the time I was done with it). I am very addicted to yarn, wool, fingering, bulky, lace-weight, wool blends, silk etc etc etc. I have knitted a lot of different fibers but there is one wish.........to knit with cashmere. That would be the best. OK...here I am supposed to talk about me and instead I was side-tracked with yarn.......again. I taught 3 of my four kids to knit, spin and do simple weaving. The fourth, a DD, has caught the knitting fever and is forever into my needles, yarn and patterns. Suprisingly she designs a lot of her own knitting. Oh..I do have a DH, one who is VERY tolerant of needles, project bags, patterns, and yarn...... LOTS & LOTS of yarn. He has accepted the fact that any out of town trip MUST include a yarn shop. Of which, I search the internet to make sure of that. Enough about me. Is anyone out there going to Stitches in Baltimore?

Look what my Dye-O-Rama Pal sent me! She e-mailed Friday to tell me the package was sent. On Monday I was "haunting" the mailbox. Sure enough the mailman was struggling with a package at our mailbox. I almost ran over the DH to get to the mailbox first. Forget the bills and the junkmail GIMMEE THAT PACKAGE! My DH told me calm down "you're going to hyperventilate"! Well, put the package envelope over my head but gimmee that yarn and the goodies. My dye pal outdid herself. How did she possibly know I have been wanting the sheep needle gauge. And 3 skeins of yarn! More than enough for socks. I have already started the socks. Thank you Julia!
