That will teach me to not do my homework

I had bad day yesterday. Dh came home, took over cooking dinner and just all around made my evening much better than my day. We were sitting on the couch and he told me "You don't have enough yarn. You should buy some." So I immediately ran to my...I mean, clicked, my way to my wishlist at The Loopy Ewe. I had not shopped there yet and was very excited to do so. So I browsed, drooled, browsed, consulted my MIL, consulted my husband and finally chose a skein from Monkeypal's stash. If I'd done my homework I would have found Monkeypal on etsy.com and just possibly paid $5 less. The Loopy Ewe charges priority which is almost $6 plus the yarn is $2 less at etsy. I know the Loopy Ewe needs to charge a little more to make a commission but the least they could do is allow first class shipping. /rant

Hi. I'm just finishing the spiderman blanket also, reading others work on this has been very helpfull. I don't think that I will get all the sections(rings) done as this baby blanket seems to be growing quite large. My daughter has already warned me to expect my two grandkids will be wanting this. This blanket is for a good friend of hers who had a baby, shes also a neighbor so the kids will definitely see this blanket.
Enjoyed your blog, I must update mine soon.
