:cheering: Am I excited? lol.. sorry.. will try to control myself here.
The suggested material for the lace and diamond bootees is Rowan Cotton Glace - 1 3/4 ball of cream, knitted with 1 pair of US 3 (3 1/4 mm) needles. I am reading the instructions :oops: I think I am going to really miss Silver's play by play (socks!) Hope I can do this :thinking: I might (insert I know I will) have questions lol :XX:

Before knitting, did you ever think you'd get this excited over a ball of yarn in the mail? ;)

I'm inspired! You guys are going to help make me a rock solid knitter 4 life!! as opposed to picking up the knitting ever 5 years and making someything (if completed at all) badly.
I'm determined to cont. knitting until it's time to leave my needles with my estate! :roflhard: (not much estate to speak of, since I'm a teacher) but I'll have some awesome needles and yarn to pass on.
I now think of MONEY in terms of how much yarn can this buy me!!
