SO - The weekend challenge did awesome this week! You all kicked it! As did all of the word wars! YOU ARE ALL SO DAMN IMPRESSIVE!!!! My inbox overfloweth!

Are you progressing on your Swaps of Joy? I am behind. :( There is so much knitting to do and I'm going like a mad fool. But I have set aside time throughout the week for both knitting and writing and by this time next week there should be real progress.
