I'M WAY STUNNED, EXTREMELY HONORED...OH MY!!!!

Like I said...I'm very stunned!!!!! My 2008 Knitting Pattern a Day arrived today. UPS brought it here Friday, but I didn't hear them because I was asleep because of the ongoing pain, yadda yadda yadda. On the note they left I could NOT figure out who in the world had sent me something from Simon and Schuster...the calendars are published by Accord, so I never dreamed it was the calendar. So I called UPS and redirected the delivery to Lonnie's place of business.
Well, he called to tell me it was the calendar and so far he had seen 3 patterns in Jan & Feb and he had to go because he was showing everyone at work (is that sweet or what?!)!!! Well, my sweet husband came home to check on me and to bring it to me And I was just STUNNED looking at the box!

Then I found the index and took it out to find that I have .....BRACE YOURSELF, this is unbelievable.......
9 PATTERNS IN IT!!!!!!!!! This is just unbelievable! I'm so amazed that they liked so many of my patterns! I am totally stunned, extremely HONORED, very EXCITED and HUMBLE all at the same time!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! I'll let you know when I can cause I certainly can't yet!!

Okay, while I gain control I'll let you know what I've knit for my Swap Pal for Part 2. I'll see if this will bring me down to Earth a bit!!! 2 Mason Dixon Ballband cloths for her bath and 2 for her kitchen...sorry, I've not taken photos yet, I will when I finish everything. Last night I finished the Ribs and Lace Tank from Spring Interweave Knits (2nd photo). I knit it with KnitPicks Main Line in the Blueberry colorway, I really like knitting with this yarn, it's the 1st I've used it and I love it! And I'm about to begin the Water Bag (scroll down) that the girl is holding with the "Lacy Yoga Bag" but I'm using the same st pattern on the beverage bag as the one on the yoga bag. I will knit it with the same yarn. And, if I'm still in MainLine knitting mood when I'm done with this I may knit a kerchief or a headband to go with. I will add something for the bath and kithchen to go with the cloths and a bottle of water to go with the bag and I will be done, I think. I may pick up an accessory at the yarn shop, depends on if my pain allows me to be up and out and about. So...do ya'll think that makes an okay Swap package? Would you be happy to receive these things? I've never knit for a knitter so I wasn't exactly sure what to do.

OMGoodness, almost forgot to tell you! Sally accidentally knocked one of my Bex yarn holders off of the bed and cracked the side...it wasn't her fault, it was an accident! I have the best husband in the world, as you know! He glued it so that it can be used, and the crack won't be seen when I sit it out on display with the others, but you understand I had to get another, right?! So, I was very happy that there happened to be an auction for a pink one and we won!!!! As you can see, she's a bit dirty, so will need a bit of TLC and is without the holder. Normally I wouldn't bid on a yarn holder that didn't have the original handle, but all of these are the same, small, white, satin rope that you can find at the fabric shop! So, she makes #...I don't remember, let's just say I have a few!...wow, I'm obsessed!!
Here's wishing all of you a WONDERFUL July!!
