This is not a FO because...

I didn't finish anything again this week. The Paintbox Quilt is about to be quilted. I did finish the back and I did make the top-batting-back sandwich out of the whole thing. The Susie Hoodie is about 2/3 done. The yarn is a cotton/acrylic blend and is beginning to pill already. I will finish the garment, but I will go out of my way to avoid using cotton yarn in garments again.

Oh, the picture? That's a swap where we pulled stuff out of our stashes that we thought our partner would like. Katie sent all of these goodies from London. It's a fun bunch of fibery goodness and amazingly generous. I haven't finished with it, either. There's actually some uneaten chocolate (it's good, I'm just making a feeble attempt at self-control).

Lovely, gorgeous yarnie goodness!

And it is really good stuff: alpaca, baby llama, merino wool, and something Katie kool-aid dyed.
