Hello? Is this thing on?

Thank you to everyone for the warm birthday wishes! I got a bit of a surprise last weekend when celebrating my sister's 50th birthday. (Our birthdays are many years and a day apart!) Big party, lost of people, tons of food etc. And in the midst of it all, a little side celebration sponsored by our brother, sister-in-law, and their children. They surprised me with a card and this:
What is it? A beautifully unusual dish filled with little pieces of index card. On the cards are the 41 inspirational phrases/actions they came up with for stress relief! I've needed some of that as the school year has begun with a bang! (Hence, why I dropped out of view for a bit...) As you can see, it went immediately to work and is sitting on my oh so lovely industrial green desk. They are so thoughtful.

On the fiber front, Ravelry has struck again. In wandering around the patterns I found this:

Which I am attempting to make in this:
Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Sapphire
I've tried to start it three times. Sigh. I need strong light (the blue is really dark) and the ability to count accurately!!! I'll try again soon. Wish me luck! LOL

Yes, good luck! It really is beautiful, and will look great in the blue!

Ooh, that cowl looks so pretty! And that color is perfect for you. Can't wait to see how it looks on you! That dish is the most unusual one I've seen and I love it. Lucky you!

That looks like it would be fantastic in a darker blue, especially if it's vibrant.

I spend too much time at Ravelry.
