Welcome back! The Poststitch giveaway was a huge success, thank you to everyone who participated! Our winner was Meghan Nurmikko, so congratulations and thank you again to the kind ladies of Poststitch! (Is that enough exclamation marks?).

On a sadder note, I was diagnosed yesterday with severe carpal tunnel in my right arm. Back story on this is that last week I was in a lot of pain in my right arm. From that came the decision that I was not going to knit on Mondays and Thursdays (which worked for this past Monday but I failed on Thursday and was knitting). 

  So my terror of surgery and pain is rearing it's head while I absorb it and suck it up. *sniffle*.

On another note, I finished a knit from Botanical Knits by Alana Dakos! The Wrapped In Leaves shawl, which is made in Supersquish dk in colorway Harvest Gold from Celestial Strings Yarns. just need to block it and want to get rods for the top. I love it, and the pattern really was very nice. I enjoyed the pooling and striping effect of the yarn, reminds me of a walk in the forest during fall. When the sun is shining through the leaves as they change colors.

  I adore Celestial Strings Yarn, Angela is a wonderful dyer with a big heart, patience and beautiful taste. Please, please, go check out her Etsy page and her Facebook page and show her some love. I have some squishy yarn coming in the mail from her in the future and I will share what I get when it arrives.

In the meantime, I have been plugging along on the Mares' Tails KAL and suggested to Poststitch folks that they have a KAL for each delivery every month for fun. :D. So far I have 13 repeats completed, only 4 more to go! :) 

   What pattern should I work on next from Botanical Knits? Wrapped in Leaves was perfect, by the way!
