So much to tell
First, I finally felted Jessica #2. When I went to the craft store, they did not have the Paton's wool in the correct color so I went ahead and bought these funky acrylic handles. Before I got to the checkout, I passed the samples for discontinued fabric and picked up the paisley number for a couple of bucks. I'm thinking that I might try to line the purse with it. Of course, I don't sew and am not really sure how to go about it but it seemed like a good idea at the time. What do you think?
The last few days I have been obsessing over the snowdrop shawl. It is finally finished!

On a random note, when I picked up Genny at the daycare last week the owner mentioned she was looking for part-time help. I said I was looking for something to do while I try to figure out my next career move. Today was my first day--not exactly glamorous (lots of cleaning up involved) or high-paying, but it was fun. Now I have extra yarn money. Woo-hoo!
