Number one: Yesterday my boss asked me what the company could do for me to be able to graduate (I have one final project left but am working fulltime). An hour later we had it all worked out... :D

I get to work on a project that will be beneficial for my company and I get to do a lot of it at work. On paid working hours! I'll get to borrow a laptop so I can work from home every Monday. This to keep me from doing other workrelated things on my "project time". I :heart: :ed that!!!

Number two: Earlier today I was called into my boss' office to talk about my salary. I had counted on a US$50 increase per month but I ended up with US$80! He is not the best boss when it comes to feedback on the different projects I'm working on but today he told me how satisfied he is with my work! :thumbsup:

Number three: Earlier this week my boyfriend bought me the nicest bunch of tulips I've ever seen. :inlove: In Sweden we call them "parrot tulips" and they have a ruffled edge to them. I've taken real good care of them and hope to have them staying alive for another week.

Number four: I've knitted the back, fronts and sleeves on the Baby Yoda Sweater (http://dogsstealyarn.com/yoda.htm) I'm doing for my cousin's newborn. I have the I-cords and the sewing left to do. Which I'll try to get done this weekend. :XX:

Number five: I seem to have gotten the hang of the cable (twist) pattern in the Starsky Cardigan (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTstarsky.html). Now I'm just looking for the perfect yarn (without ruining myself on taxes and postage).

Just wanted to share as I'm almost jumping up and down in my chair here! :D

Hope you all will have a great weekend!!!

Sounds like everything is going your way!! I know the Parrot tulips that you are referring to- they are beautiful! I used to work at a florist and those were one of my favorites.

I hope your weekend goes as well as the rest of the week did! :happydance:
