KEEP CALM (and cast on)

Click now for JiffNotes

IT'S OK, EVERYBODY!

I OPENED THE BOX.

(Oh, yeah, and I finished the prework on Chocolat, which obviously wasn't nearly as exciting as opening the box, since there is no picture of my HAPPY DANCE, which does not even happen very often around here but although very exciting OH LOOK, YARN!)
 
Yarn, there is a picture of.

Actually, my excuse is that I was going to iron Chocolat before its glamour shot, because, you know, I finished it Friday night, so obviously it'd be no problem to have it ironed by the end of the weekend. And yet here we are. And there it is, unironed.

Hmmm.

So, yarn! The four skeins are for a sweater for the adorable Lydia. I have cast on! See, I am really normal! Yarn came, I cast it on! Normal, yes?? (Really, call off the nice men in their clean, white coats.) The Dishie is for a couple dishcloths (The angels have the TARDIS and a mosaic squirrel one I was gifted by Jean). The Felici came to live with me because I agonized over this yarn when Knit Picks had it two years ago, and then they ran out of those colorways, and I always regretted not buying them. They brought back some favorites, so this time I snatched them up! Also, there is some unpictured yarn for a seekrit project.

I reorganized a closet (well, two square feet of it, anyway...LET'S NOT GET CRAZY) and told Michael that I need to learn to knit a lot faster. He was skeptical that that would actually decrease my stash volume.

I mean, of course it would...right? I'm not crazy, am I?

Don't answer that.

Situation normal. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?

Is it strange that I see a collection of richly colored yarn and get really excited?

"Who is this? What's your operator number?" I think I'm with Michael on the knitting speed theory! LOL
