DSC02980Bad News: The house is quiet and Knitting Daughter is back up at college. sigh.
Good News: She and her friends looked pretty darned happy to be all back together again. That does make me feel better about the whole thing. A little.

Bad News: Remember these caramels that I blogged about a week or two ago? I tried two more things. The Chocolate Swirl Marshmallows and the Marzipan Caramel. Who knew that I liked the flavor of marzipan? YUM! And now I kinda think I “need” these special marshmallows every time I have hot chocolate. FPS.
Good News: They’re also great for just eating out of the bag. Not that I tried that or anything….

Bad News: I don’t know where this day went. (Well, yes I do. It went into getting massive amounts of boxes into the mail truck before the mailman arrived at 3:30. But boy did this day fly by.)
Good News: Since Knitting Daughter isn’t home and since WH is still working, I can stay far into the night to get things done. (Well, not far. But a few more hours, anyway.)

Bad News: No Sneak Up tonight.  I’ll be updating a few things like our supply of Knitspot patterns (including some new ones), and a few other things tomorrow.
Good News: No Sneak Up, but that doesn’t mean that no new yarn will go up. Do you get my drift? (That’s supposed to be a secret hint.)

DSC02976Bad News: Look at this purse that I got in the mail last week. Sharon – the one who designs these patterns made it for me! We met her at the Sock Summit and I happened to mention that I would love a Loopy purse, but I don’t crochet. The next thing I know, this arrived in the mail. It could not be more perfect. Why is this bad news? Because it’s one-of-a-kind and don’t you just want one?
Good News: It won’t be one-of-a-kind for very long. Sharon is going to write up the pattern for us to have here in the future. Woohoo! I’ll keep you posted.

Bad News: Our Anniversary month Blog Contests are over.
Good News: But we have five more winners from last week! Congratulations to Erin from IL, Sue from TN, Marianne from NC, Patricia from NY, and Traci in NV! It has been fun sending out gift packages from these contests. The other good news is that we do a blog contest every single month, and the September contest will be up in just a couple of weeks. I have a good question for you to answer in September. 

Do you have any Good News/Bad News to share today? It’s Monday. Surely you do.
