I finally got my Sweater Wizard and Stitch & Motif Maker software in the mail yesterday. Yay! I'll probably install it tonight and try it out.

Along with the software, I also had my Booklend book, The Wishbones by Tom Perrotta, waiting in the mailbox for me. Booklend is a lending library by post that is run by Mark Anderson, a man who wants to share his own personal library. You browse the titles he has and then can sign up for the book. A lot of the time, everything is already checked out, but there are waiting lists. He also sends a you a postage paid envelope to return the book in. No time limits, no cost. Amazing!

I swatched my Rowan Summer Tweed this morning and am one stitch short of being on target. My row count matches up though. The yarn feels fabulous, but it leaves a fine dusting of black specks all over my lap. Has anyone else had this happen or is it due to my color choice?
