Surprise Gifts for me!

Another quick post. Thanks for reading all of my crazy blabbering!

Wow! Look at these! Yesterday, my friend Carrie brought this bag to me! Her mom made it for me. Isn't that awesome? Ein (our weirdo dog) seems to love it. She won't leave it alone. It has pockets for needles on the inside and outside. It'll be just right for carrying a few projects when I go places. Instead of the huge bags I usually carry.
One of the third grade teachers at LD's school and I talk a lot about knitting. She was actually one of my teachers when I was in school. She is the teacher who lets the kids knit while she reads out loud, and one day a week they can stay in from recess to knit. So many boys and girls are learning great things because of her. Well, she just finished her first sweater, and I was admiring it, and she told me she had something for me, if I wanted it.
A sweater kit! It's cotton and gorgeous. This will be my first sweater. I told her, in about three years when I finish it, I'll come show her. LOL. I am finishing some other things first, but I'm pretty excited to knit this.
I kept saying, 'Are you sure?' and she's like 'I'll never knit it, it should be used.' Wowee!
I need to run, I have tons of stuff to do before getting the kids. Have a great weekend, everybody!
p.s. blogger is dumb, and it better not mess up my blog! :)

That's so cool to get those gifts! Hey, maybe you can tell me what "cotton flake" is. I never knew what that term meant.
