I'm helpless in the face of blueberry pie

Ok, I was so happy today to receive a package from someone in my hello yellow group on ravelry, katknit65. I organized a yellow swap but then I was unable to participate... and she sent me a package anyway!

In the package is: Some lemon and pepper pasta, some little blank kitty cards, some exotic rum coffee (can’t wait to try it!!!), a card, and some little stickers, plus a little (handmade?) paint can that says “Knit your hearts with an unslipping hand.” and has little daisies all over it. It is so cute. Inside of it was…

That dishcloth, which has a little kitty knitted into it. There was also, as you can see, some peaches & cream, and some money chocolate. I am so happy, and if you're reading this, thank you again Kelly!!!! You ROCK!!!

Also today, I did a whole repeat on Icarus. Since each row you add 4 stitches, I'm positive that will never happen again on this shawl, lol. I am so in love with it. It's so gorgeous. See?

Here's a detail shot. The color is right in the first one. Technically, it's right in both lights, the first one if the lights are bright, and this one if it's darker.

I love it. However, I think I'm all laced out for the day, so I'm going to work on some socks or fingerless gloves for the rest of the day. :)

How are you guys doing?
