A Very Cheery Sort of Day

If today could get any better, I really don't know how. The weather was lovely - going from 7 degrees early in the week to 50 degrees by this afternoon. I wore my lighter-weight coat out and was comfortable walking from the bus to class. It wasn't remarkably sunny, but the snow was melting, and I didn't have to tiptoe down the ice slide across the street. In apparel assembly today we had a semi-difficult lab that I tried to ace as well as possible, and when I got home there was a nice, informative post waiting for me on Ravelry about how I should spin from the fold. Delightful.

Oh yeah - and there was a GIANT box waiting for me, too! My Malabrigo Swap, round 4 package! It was coming all the way from Los Angeles from Laura, who is amazingly insightful and wonderful (and I can't wait to meet her when I visit L.A.) She did some pretty fancy stalking - I had no idea it was her, at all - and got me the most wonderful presents:

- Essie Nail polish
- a $10 iTunes gift card
- a hedgehog pouch from Emiko on Etsy
- glass fruit that I can turn into stitch markers
- Ysolda Teague's pattern 'Ishbel'
- the "Knitalong" book I have been wanting
- "The Bedside Book of Birds", a lovely anthology of bird drawings, pictures, stories and folklore
- a pair of earrings from Wicopy on Etsy
- 3 skeins of Malabrigo Yarn's worsted weight in the colors vermilion, jewel blue, and oriental night
