I’ve been looking so long at these pictures of you...that I almost beleive that they’re real

Warning Picture Heavy Post

Today was a good day - the weather was perfect, I didn't lose my cell phone at SnB last night and I got goodies in the mail.

My 3 bosses where in RI the last 3 days and while I had some deadlines early this week - today was slow so I spent the day cleaning up my files and receiving good things by UPS. First this came from the Fruit Store:

The card said it was from my 3 managers - I think they though Admin Prof Day was today instead of next Wed. In the boxes starting from the big one on the bottom, were 3 apples and 3 pears, then cheese and crackers, 6 chocolate chip cookies, and a small box of mixed nuts.

The next thing that arrived was this:

I also ordered this:

And this weekend I picked up these patterns:

This is the stole I have been working on for my co-worker - I like the way it is coming out and it is very easy to work on while drinking coffee and talking on Tuesday nights:

Thanks for posting pictures from BGK - I haven't seen the book in person yet and it was great to see what's in it. I really like all of the patterns you liked, so I'll definitely be picking this one up!

thanks for purchasing the pattern! i thought i recognized you name from the paypal order!

the big girl knits book seems pretty cool. does it give instructions on how to change a pattern for a better big girl fit? i've been thinking about doing some special plus size patterns, but I'm not too familar with the special fit issues. btw, they are doing a second book too! it should be out sometime next year i think.
