But I'm not *ready* for Christmas!

I'm way too busy! First, I want to thank everyone for the nice happy b-day wishes. The day was uneventful, but it's ok. At 27, you don't need your birthday to be highly celebrated, right? Right.

I went to a craft show today and I got a beautiful ring and a necklace. I also realized just how much some people are willing to pay for knitted items. Don't get me wrong, I think handknitted items are worth a lot. BUT I was surprised to see a knitted sweater priced at 595$ and scarves that I could have made myself priced at 75$. Wow. You know, I should bring my family and friends to the show and show them the prices. Then they'd be even happier when I give them knitted gifts ;)

I got home to find a second gift from my Secret Pal (who, I know now, is Joy!).



Two skeins of Caron Jewel Box, some sock-shaped point protector, nice beads, lovely flower-shaped buttons, a mini photo album and a day planner. My pal is great! And my other pal, Babette, has received what I sent her so all is good. I really liked participating in this thing.

I'm going to end this by telling you all, millions of readers, about a few blogs that I like to read. I will eventually add them to my menu bar on the right. Yeah, tomorrow I'll do that (says the queen of procrastination).

An Adequate Knitter -- home of the lovely Julie

Tiara Knits -- Lovely mod of the Knit and Bitch forum (if you ever need a co-mod... you know...) ;)

Jo~Knits! -- She may not know it, but I really am a fan.

Yarn Harlot -- I call her the mitten goddess in my mind

I'm getting more and more addicted to blog reading. I'll be adding more for sure.
