BACK...BACK in the USA

Thanks for all of your well-wishes as I traveled...I landed last night from my many-a-week business trip. Got most everything done...and got the least amount of sleep ever recorded on one of these trips so far. (PSST...Still looking for a new assistant...resumes should start rolling in this week!)

It's already been a crazy CRAZY will round out like this: wake (NY), birthday party (MA), funeral (NY)...and me passing out of exhaustion by Tuesday.

Ever had one of those - how the heck did THAT happen - days?
That was me it a mix of sleepless nights, jetlag and bouncing from one car/plain/train to the next... I LOST A BALL OF YARN somewhere between China and Taiwan!!! (Tahki Cotton Classic Hot Pink (#3450).) How? Who knows!
So what does this mean???
This means that I was NOT able to finish the Petite Chic (from Minnow Knits by Jill Eaton ~ p. 73) dress for my Niece's birthday party tomorrow (which I have flown to to attend between the wake and funeral back in NY...) so...I'll have to mail it up (definately NOT as fun because I will likely NEVER see her in it after all of that work.) I mean, I'll see a photo...but you all know it's not the same. I finished the skirt and have 1/2 of the front done -- and am stopped in my tracks until probably Wednesday this week when I can hopefully get a new ball. That's not to say I'm empty-handed -- I bought her a ton of fun "chooos" (shoes) on my trip to the UK in February -- such DARN CUTE SHOES! I'm STILL wishing that the hot pink wellies with the white polka-dots were available in my size!

So...I'm working on finishing the scarf for my coat.

Yes...this is the same photo that I posted before...I'll post a new one (hopefully modeling it with the coat) in these next few days!

Kirsten Jones of Domesticgirl along with JenLa and others (see the sidebar on JenLa's blog) are doing the Revlon Run/Walk for Women...and they need your donation!!!
Yes, this is, once again, a shameless plug hoping that you will click and donate for such a worthy cause as the research for a cure for breast cancer.
We all know the's either touched your family or someone you know.
Having walked the Avon 3-Day a few years ago myself, I know what it's like to raise the funds for this type of event (We each had to raise a $$$$ to participate!) It was SO WORTH IT...were I to live in LA I would have joined you ladies!!!'ll have to settle with a donation and a BIG THANK YOU HUG from New York!

So glad that you made it home safely, Miss Kimberli. Hope your whirlwind weekend was okay--you are a very busy girl! I don't think I would step foot near a plane after that huge world flight you had to do so recently!

Sorry about the Tahki Cotton loss--that is kind of crazy!

Take care!

In the true spirit of a knitter, may I ask: did you manage to buy any yarn in China?
