A screeching halt...

My Christmas knitting that is. Why you ask? Have a look

I LOVE this pattern! I may be knitting a little too tight on my middle skull section. But I don't care. It is my first time and it is for ME. This is brilliant! Not just the colors. But the whole thing!

I got an early Christmas present yesterday from a former secret pal. I think it was Secret Pal 4. Are they up to 7 now? Anyway this came to me to my office:

What is it? Well it is a tube of roving to spin these:

Isn't that freakin cool?????? Look, I took some out:

Where did it come from you ask? None other than the lovely and talented Audrey. I really haven't had the heart to tell her that Secret Pal 4 has been over with for like 6 months! Hee hee......

No, really. Audrey and I have become friends. She is the BEST. Thanks Audrey!

I just picked up the yarn to start my skull and crossbones hat. Tips? Words of wisdom?
