Instant Stash

How thrilled was I when I got my Knitpicks shipment? Let's just say that when I need to calm myself in hectic moments (of which there have been too many lately) I think about the cardigan I will make from this:
Or the v-neck argyle vest, which will be my first attempt at steeking, that I'll make with this:
Or Ian's proper cardigan, that won't hang like a blanket, from my Elizabeth Zimmerman book (The Opinionated Knitter), made out of this:
Or some sort of ribbony shirt for my mom out of this:
Or even a shawl for a dear friend out of this, which makes me think of one of my favorite Enya songs, "Caribbean Blue":

Guess who is looking forward to a "ribbony shirt" from your stash. I enjoyed the preview and I wonder if you plan to create the pattern as well as the garment.

Other than inspiration, I guess there's no way I can offer input! Is that one of the reasons you love knitting so? (See Mama grin)
