We should do another late night knit together and chat thing - I didn't get to stay that long on New Year's Eve, but it was fun and I'd like doing it again before next New Year's - what do you think?
Yay! I'm glad you got the yarn! Have fun with it.

I would love to do another late night KAL, but I can't figure out what day would work well for it. It needs to be something international. Maybe the first day of each season - Spring, Summer, Fall Winter? That might be fun.

I'm going to find a one skein felt pattern for it; that's on my list of things to learn/try this year
Felting is fun!

How about universally celebrated holidays? There has to be more than Easter, Christmas, and New Years, doesn't there.

We can't do Easter or Christmas, because some religions don't celebrate them. We have to stick to seasonal things, I guess. Because we have forum members all over the world, from all kinds of religions.

First day of spring? Or, a Friday night during the next Olympics?

Hey, that skein of taupe fuzzy goodness arrived today! I haven't yet quite decided what it wants to be, but I have fondled it a bit! (smile)

Thank you Shandeh, you are most generous and kind!

I got my gorgeous skein of Bernat Soy yarn today. This is some scrumptious feeling yarn and I can't believe I didn't pick some up to try already. Just from the feel of it this is destined to become one of my favorites. I will keep fondling it and it should tell me what to make with it. Thank you so much for all the fun and the great prizes.
