Got Mine!!!

Look what I got from the "Toothfairy" aka: Aimee in Ann Arbor, MI!!!!

She did a really great job. I'm so psyched about the yarn, I have a pattern picked out already!!

The treats are great too!! I got a project bag, some hand cream, Ghiradelli chocolate carmels, hot chocolate, sticky notes and a black sheep tape measure. The yarn is Shibui Knits and Lorna's Laces. Now all I need is to finish up some projects so that I can cast on with this!!!

Waiting for swap....

So this is the package I sent out on Tuesday to my swap partner from Sock knitters of the World unite and swap. I'm so excited now to hear when she gets it and if she likes it. I had LOTS of fun shopping for someone I don't know but loves knitting socks like I do!!! I'm also excited to be waiting for my package to come and to see who it's from!!

I've been terribly sick..........:( going to the dr's later today.

I'm still here......

No, I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth! Although today I feel as if I could. I've been so sick with a cold, or sinus or whatever causes one to constantly sneeze, hack, cough and blow your nose till it's red and sore!!!

I'm also guilty of being hooked to the knitter's crack: Ralvary!!!!!!

I've joined several groups, do alot of reading but little commenting. I also read another dozen or so blogs!!

Not much new here. I've started another pair of socks. These are for my Dad, his birthday is March. I'm also hoping to help a fellow knitter with a project that she is working on that needs to be done in early March.

FO news: Back in December, I went to the Post Office to collect our mail and in the lobby was Nancy from Spin a Yarn. She was there supporting the Christmas postage and had a contest going. I WON!! So, what did I win? Well, I won a skein of "Comfort" by Berroco, a pair of size 8/16" circs, her "Cozy Cap" pattern book and some Spin a Yarn sticky notes. Last week I was in between projects so I decided to start a beaded hat, using my winnings, for the Cozy Cap project. I finished it but haven't dropped it off yet.

Well, that's it for today folks!
Tah, Tah, for now.
