So, I had a lengthy comment added earlier today, but it seems not to have made it to the blog!! Here goes again...

Hi Laura and Sarah! Thanks for mentioning me in the blog...my 15 minutes of fame! Yes, I remember those wonderful snowy days or evenings when Laura and I would knit and share some Grand Marnier to keep us warm, while our hubbies were out being boys. Can it be that 13 or 14 years have passed since then?

I would love to have a big snowfall here in Florida (ok, not as big as they've had in upstate NY this week, but still) so that I could cuddle up by the fire (yes, we have a fireplace in Florida. Don't ask. "Resale", the builder and Real Estate agent told us! Then I could knit to my heart's content. That is, if Rory didn't want to play NHL Monopoly. Again. For the 5th time. smile. Speaking of Rory - he's now 6, and Aidan is going to be 9 this month. Where, oh where, does the time go? Honestly, it's just not fair how fast the years are slipping by.

I'm still at IBM...almost 25 years now! When I first started, I thought those people in the "Quarter Century Club" were ancient!

As for the mohair, I do have to agree with Laura on the scratchy/shedding factor. I have lots of that, but have recently found (with a little free time after a client meeting on Long Island) some lovely mohair that I purchased to make a shawl. Still in the bag, begging me to do SOMETHING with it. Poor thing.

Your website is fabulous, and has re-awakened my primal urge to knit, so don't be surprised if you see my name on your order list! Wish I could do that full time. I'll have to find a way...in the meantime, I will live vicariously through you both. Btw, Laura...I remember that afghan! Nice to see that others don't always finish projects. I'm told that being an Aries, it's a common trait. You should see the closet full of projects.....
