I was so very surprised when I won another contest a couple weeks ago!
In more ways than one… I’ve neglected much of my holiday preparation except knitting. Today, I will have to start focusing on gift wrapping, addressing cards (late!) and helping Mom decorate the tree.
Chris mentioned that I was knitting a zoo. How very true. Another way to look at it is as a Noah’s Ark, [...]
(About this time now, I’m on a plane on my way to Chicago for Stitches Midwest!)
In June, Dave had a contest, Two Duhs, and I won! The yarny prize arrived last month but I haven’t been able to blog about it until now.
Great, big apologies for being so late in posting abot my latest packages from Atlantis (1SSP) and SP8, both, who sent wonderful packages last month. Below is what I received from Atlantis, and Part II will detail the latest SP8 package. : )
Woohoo, last week, I received my first Secret Pal packages!
Ta da, here are a couple pictures of my most recently completed pair. These will be a gift later this year. So I first tried them on for an “action” shot before washing.

At first, I frogged only halfway to see if they could be saved this way, but I still wasn’t happy, so RIP, everything went. I was in a positive mood, so I restarted immediately and have been working on them since.
Where did the month go? I realized I had better hurry and post the last of my pictures for Project Spectrum.
But before I share some orange and yellow things… I’m taking down this yellow skin/theme. I enjoyed using it for April, and particularly liked the three-column layout. But it just isn’t **me.** I’ve restored [...]
Madder Ribbed Update: I’m experiencing that sneaking feeling that I will be frogging these. I’m keeping them in their travel bag for a couple more days until I take a good look and make my decision.
A few days ago I said I was going to take a break from socks… at the time I typed [...]
