What a Week!

Amazing. I don't know what else to say.
I'll start here. This is the Lacy Prairie Shawl in colonial blue Caron Simply Soft that I somehow managed to finish this week in advance of Saturday's NoSo Knit an annual local knitting event. The admission is one handknit charity item. I'll be there on Saturday, enjoying the company of a lot of knitters and shopping with some awesome vendors, too.

LOTS of thank yous go out to Lori E, my Knitters Tea Swap 2 Secret Pal for the wonderful box I received today. These goodies (plus the wonderful Wing o' the Moth shawl pattern she emailed me earlier in the week) were far more than I ever expected! I'm especially excited about the Knitting for Peace book she's been on my wishlist...Lori said she had read of my charity knitting on my blog.
I think that's just about perfect, don't you? addition to these neat things, I won a contest on Rebecca's blog...she emailed me today to say that not only had I won her moving contest (along with 7 others - congrats to all of us!), but I also correctly guessed the book she and "Mr. Twain" were reading in the photo from her vacation (there were 3 correct answers and we all won something - whoohoo!)! So I have goodies on the way from Rebecca! Of course, I'll share pics when they arrive...I'm just so excited - I had only just discovered Rebecca's blog with this move - so I really won more than her contests! I've won a new friend, too! How cool is that?

As if all this were not enough...I was delighted to find that my Chocolate Swap Pal had received the package I sent along to her and she was pleased with the contents...go look! (...but remember to come back, okay?) I sent along an Oressa DPN case from Nana Sadie Rose... you see, she's a sock knitter who uses dpns, too! On opposite shores but with a common connection - so neat!

Oh...and one more thing (I know, you're getting tired of the abundance?) - today I was half-listening to my radio station. I heard them say..."I'll take the 10th caller for tickets." I could only hope it was the concert tickets I had been wanting a chance at all week. So I dialed. "You have reached..." Canned recording. I redialed. And got a connection with silence. "Hello?" I said. "Umm...two questions: Are you calling for this concert?" "Yes." "Can you pick up your tickets locally today or tomorrow?" "Yes." "You are a winner!"

So I'm going to attend this lady's show tomorrow night!

Like I said, WHAT a WEEK!

Wynonna! I hope you'll tell us all about it. She's a Dame, in the utterly great sense of the word.

I'm interested in Knitting for Peace, too -- I hope you'll share what you knit from it.

The shawl looks FAB. Same thought goes for winning tickets to see WJ. Hope you have fun at the concert!

I really guessed well with the book then, I didn't even look at your wishlist. Glad you like your package! Lori

WOW! You've had an incredible week! I'm so thrilled for you! : )

I just purchased the *Knitting for Peace* book about a week or two ago and have read the entire book cover to cover. It's wonderful!

Enjoy all your goodies and have a wonderful weekend!

Sorry, how could I forget to mention your Lacy Prairie shawl. It's wonderful! And what a great idea the Noso Knit event is.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
