Secret Pal 4
Yippee! I'm participating in my first Knitty Secret Pal thingee. It begins May 15th, and being the geek that I am, have already purchased stuff for my pal. I just couldn't wait. My friend Alesia posted her comments, so I am going to be a copy-cat and do the same.

12. What is on your Cool Stuff Wishlist (knitting or not): You know, this is going to sound pathetic, but I don't really think about things I want too much. If you could send some peace in the package, that would be GRREAATTT! (I have twin 4 yr-olds, and I am officially insane.)
