Fluff in the Mail!

Guess what came yesterday?? The book and yarn from KnitPicks!!! Does it look like a firefighter's helmet yet? No? Not even if you reeeeeeally squint? Huhn. Go figure.

I can't wait to start, but I have promised myself that I won't even swatch until I finish Bean's dress. I think I have finally figured out what I want to do for the shoulder straps after trying out a couple of different things. It doesn't help that the figuring out part is kind of picky work, so I have to find the rare moments when the kids won't be using me as a jungle gym while I knit.
