A package and a crazy lady*

When I got home today I was greeted by a rather large package on the front step. I was lucky enough to win Sally's pamper pack giveaway, and inside was the (very generous) prize!
Inside was a body and bath set, a face masque, some rose petal soap, a hot water bottle cover, and my favourite: a wheat bag for my neck and shoulders. This will get LOTS of use!

Thank you so much, Sally! It's a really generous prize and I can't wait to start using it!

In other news, I have signed up for Yarn Harlot's Knitting Olympics. The deal is that you cast on your chosen project during the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics and finish by the end of the closing ceremony. Yes, I'm aware that I possibly did this in a slightly less than sane moment, but it's supposed to be a challenge and wouldn't life be boring if we were sensible all the time?!? My chosen project is the Ishbel Beret by Ysolda, which I've cast on 4 times previously without success. So, fifth time lucky?

*That would be me.
