Have I ever thanked you for posting so many awesome patterns? I don't think I have, so thank you for keeping this up. :)

Oh my goodness — you are very welcome! Thank you for validating my obsession with finding free patterns on Ravelry. ;)

Sunday night distraction (hopes): I hope you have a great week! Any plans? :)

Aw, thank you!

No plans right now.  I’m hoping I can go back to work in a couple of days. Boyf and I are buttoning down the hatches to ride out an impending snow storm.
