I made some good progress on cleaning up the yarn mess. I have traded some away for knitting books (YAY), and have some in mind to give away. Beyond that I think I just need to get knitting and fast to use up a lot of this yarn! I have the "baby corner" clear now, though the large yarn cart and a couple boxes still need a home. I have barely touched the stamp mess, but I have been sick this week. (excuses, excuses)

I'm looking for a good jacket pattern to adapt into a maternity sweater/jacket. I found a neat one meant for Homespun yarn: which is close to the Bernat Soft Boucle I have in mind, but it bugs me to pay $6 for the pattern booklet when the pattern is fairly simple, and I wouldn't do anything else out of the booklet. I'm hoping to find someone willing to trade me that or another similar pattern ;)

I've started on a christmas/birthday gift for my brother. I have to find out if he reads this thing before I post much about it though. I doubt he does, but it's not like I hid the blog......
