Knitting a pleasant end to a rough day....

Ah, the stress relieving properties of my favorite hobby... A welcome relief from download software and impatient insurance agents!!

I am very excited to report that the yarn arrived yesterday for my Fan Kimono. I am barely, barely restraining myself from starting it!! I got a gigantic swatch started. I ripped it out about 1000 times, but I think I am finally getting the lace pattern. Practice makes perfect.... The yarn is DIVINE. I will make many projects out of shine worsted! It is soft as a cloud and the color is wonderful.... Love....
I remembered to send out the invite to the Stitch n' Bitch this weekend. I am pleased that people wanted to meet again this soon. Cathy should be there on the correct day, and Sharon said that she will be there with bells on. I am looking forward to it, especially since it means that this week will be OVER!! And I am very pleased to realize that we don't need a leader or agenda to have a good, relaxing time with friends.
I got a tripod so that I could take pictures of my knitting projects in the various stages of completion.... Maybe Ravelry should count as an entirely new obsession?? I don't mind, though! A very nice lady has already helped me with the pattern for the fan kimono!
