What I did on my day off

Yesterday, after a couple hours struggling (and failing) to get my new sewing machine properly threaded and operating, I sat down and (finally!!) finished hand-sewing the zipper for Samus. Words cannot express how relieved proud I feel to finally be done with this first sweater ever for myself. Appropriately, a fellow knitter was the first to see me wearing it--I spent the afternoon with Sangeeta knitting and drooling over yummy new yarn in Fredericksburg. A perfect day off!

Hi,
Sorry to put this on your blog but I was trying to join the Autumn Rose KAL and my email keeps bouncing back. Then I saw that you set up the rules so I wondered if you could please tell me how to join? I hope I;m not too late.
Many thanks,
Susie
