package sent

okay, most of the package anyway - I didn't want to wait until I got the bag done, so I sent the yarn and pattern and some goodies off this week. Hopefully, I can get the bag finished next week and send it with the rest of the goodies.

I am really sorry for being so slow this term, but life really got in the way. I hope despite the delay, I'm not too bad a swap pal and I'll try to make up for it by sending some extra goodies

slow progress

The bag is slowly making progress, it is just too hot lately to knit with thick wool. I think I will send my package next week and send the bag later as soon as it is done. Of course I will make sure that it arrives by the end of July, but I will not make it until July 11
