The Trouble with Drowning Your Sorrows is...

...sorrows can swim.

It has been a hectic week. The scarf exchange scarf is on its very merry way to its new home along with some happy little tidbits. I am about 97.3% confident that I've kept my identity a secret but just in case, I won't itemize the package contents. Of course, in my enthusiasm to get it in the mail, I didn't take pictures of any of the goodies except, of course, the million and a half pictures I took of the scarf. Hopefully my pal will take some pictures once it gets to her.

I am knitting a little silk bookmark for my niece. That will be a quick little project. This weekend, I'm going to try to get my Grandmother Purl square completed. The sewing up is fast approaching!! AND! If I find lots of knitting time this weekend, I might just start working on the Christmas lambs, which I am able to do because - hurray - my super duper yarn trade yarn arrived today from the lovely Colleen. I will take some pictures tomorrow and post them. She sent me some roving, too, which I will eventually figure out what to do with. (Thank you, THANK YOU Colleen!)

Do ya'll remember my friend Courtney? The one whose baby I knit the Daisy sweater for? Well, the baby has arrived!! He was born this morning at 2:48 a.m. and mother and baby are both doing very well. I haven't seen him yet but I'm 400% certain he is just perfect. I'll try to persuade Courtney to let me take a picture of him for ya'll when I go visit them this weekend.

I guess that's all from me. I'm going to do a little work on the bookmark. Have a wonderful weekend!

Yay, a new baby! How thrilling! I've been seeing tiny babies all week at work, and I'm getting broodier (is that a word?) by the moment!
