The Diva is here!

My Diva sweater kit arrived today! Woo-hoo. It’s that fabulous Hanne Falkenberg that was on my list and my dream came true. The colorway is awesome.

I cannot get over how fast the shipping was, especially since I purchased on 4/16 and they sent it over from England. I used their eBay site, but their actual site is Cucumber Patch. Will definitely be ordering from them again. I’ll put a permanent link in the sidebar, but go there NOW!

I’m stalking a skein of Opal yarn on eBay right now from another UK seller. I already bought the Regia cotton surf sock yarn from the same person, but I’m trying to get a two-fer on the shipping. Someone outbid me a little while ago, but I am hoping to win it back!

I’m about 3 inches in on the front of Allen’s sweater. He told me we could pretend the back was the front and then just give him something to attach it to, he’ll wear it under a jacket and everyone will think it’s a whole sweater. I knew there was a reason I married him.

And here’s a great FYI. I was on the KRF and saw that there was a link to the Summer issue of Interweave Knits. Nice looking stuff. I especially like the knitted crowns! Might have to make those for my girls.

Re: ebay - I use this free sniping service when I am away from my computer or too busy to go in and snipe myself. http://www.bidtamer.com/
Loved Allen's solution for the sweater.

And he's cute, too!

Thanks for the sniping site. I spent WAY too much on a skein of must have Opal, but at least I saved on shipping.
