Lots of things have been happening recently. First, I won 3rd place in the Instructables Homemade Holidays contest with my Venezia Napkin Rings. Somehow, they added it to their front page, then added it to a newsletter (which got me a patch and a bunch of stickers), so lots of people looked at my instructable. I think it's pretty funny that I won a prize for a pattern I didn't make up (and didn't pretend to make up since I had a link to the pattern in the instructible). Anyway, I look forward to the presents!
Also, I am almost done with the Stardust sweater. I even got an e-mail from the author of the pattern and she was excited about mine because it reminded her of the one she made. Being unoriginal, I used exactly the same yarn and she noticed on Ravelry. I look forward to finishing it today or tomorrow. I even bought more yarn to make it again in a pretty white color for a future wedding.
Also, I may be getting a puppy! News on that as it unfolds. Just hope my landlord allows it!
