Sundara is always the most beautiful eye candy yarn in my opinion. I always stop by to look at all the pretty colorways, but have yet ever been able to make up my mind which to buy!

Okay, so I always love STC Craft books, but I have to say- after getting my copy today, I love yours the best! Congratulations on your book, I can't wait until my little boy is back to school in 3 weeks- I'll have mornings for crafting again, and until then I can use the time to choose my favorites to start on, thanks so much for sharing your (wee) wonderful talent!

She's fantastic! I have a three year old who wants to marry a rabbit when she grows up, this would be the next best thing :)

Hey Heather, Thanks for the reply. I love your idea, we were kicking around something similar, but Ill definitely mention it at our fundraising meeting this week. And yeah, I know what you mean about just starting out at the school- Im a kinder mama this year and our daughter wont start until fall 2011, so theres definitely a learning curve with navigating the PTO. At least one good thing is that this school is only in its second year so there arent too many rules and nuances with our PTO- yet :)

Thanks for the thoughtful response, and yeah, regarding the library- wed already had a fall book fair, I dont know if there was a spring one planned, but it may be a good idea to have another to benefit the library. Follett is one of the companies that we order from too, one of the things we were thinking of doing was to perhaps have a week of fundraising where we had specific books that the librarian wanted to purchase and allowed families to pay for that specific book and have a bookplate in the book highlighting the family that donated it to the libary. Hopefully something like thatll work :)

The puffs are perfect! My daughter has become quite a Tinkerbell fanatic, and those type of slippers might just fit the bill since we've yet to find the missing one for over a week now :)

My daughter is a Hello Kitty maniac, though I admit, I sort of encourage her love of all things Hello Kitty- it reminds me of my childhood. Now I'm off to take a look at the shop, I may have to take them up on the coupon code...

Yum! Week one sounds fantastic, and I'm *always* on the lookout for a great recipe for beans. Even though my grandma has shared her recipe with me time and again, they never taste quite the same!

I'm so still getting ready! Deciding to make an accurate *shudder* hairy spider costume 2 days before Halloween has proved to be quite an undertaking. It should be ready by the party we're going this afternoon. I hope!

Oooooo! I have some pinkish/orange yarn that I bought last spring that I've been wanting to use for something, I just don't know how well it'll go with my skin tone :) And thanks for the feedback on the borders, it'll probably grown on me too!

Hi MB! I was thinking about getting some from them, and I ended up getting some to try out from Joy's since she's having a 30% off retirement sale. Thanks for the suggestion!

I'm making something right now with Red Heart super saver in buff, and it does seem to be a good match for a skin tone.

Thanks for sharing, and yeah, I prefer wool over acrylic but that's just because wool is squishier and has a lot more give. I crochet so tightly that I get acrylic burns (sort of like rug burns), on my hands if I use it for an extended period of time.
