Time Flies!!!

I can't believe it has been 26 days since my last post!! I have been working like crazy!! I did squeeze in some time to knit, though. I started my IS4 scarf and that's coming along great. I hope to be finished in 2 weeks and have it sent out to her as soon as its finished.

I was totally surpised today when i received my sockret pal package. It came from Gracie and I absolutely love every last bit of it. First, there are the socks. The fit like a glove. She used Colinette Jitterbug with the Broadripple pattern from Knitty (I am adding this pattern to the "Must Knit" list!!) Then, she also sent a Lantern Moon tape measure along with a book "Knitting Lessons" by Lela Nargi. Included with the package came wool wash! Eucalan lavender and yarn! 2 skeins of Claudia Hand Painted yarn in the "Oops" coloray and 1 skein of Creatively Dyed yarn in the "Caribbean" colorway. I was treuly blessed! Thank you, so much Gracie.

I am actually wearing the socks now!!

This also came! A package from my Secret Pal!! Yay!! She sent a B-day card (My b-day is tomorrow!) Yummy cocoa mix, woolwash and udder cream lotion from a store near her and 2 skeins of koigu!!!

I feel so blessed to be given such wonderful gifts! Thank you, SP!!

On the knitting front, I have a ton of half finished projects! I still have 1 jaywalker sock left to knit from last month's project spectrum, my army brat socks (1 is almost completed), the trellis sweater (2 sleeves left to complete) another baby sweater, the log cabin baby blanket (i ran out of yarn) my entrelac scarf (1 ball left!) the orange opal socks (i'm not too stressed about it b/c it's my on the go sock that i leave in the car) and my red cables and seed stitch socks from christmas. Yeah, I've got a lot of knitting to do!!

What I'm Up To....

Whew!! Last week went by so quick for me! This new job takes a bunch of my knitting time and i barely have to knit (even on my lunch!). I did squeeze in a few minutes to get my nails done, I haven't had them done in a while, so I treated myself.

And here's a close-up!

I love it! The colors are so "Spring" and the had desing was free too!! Can't beat that!!

Ok, since my new job has sucked away, I'll be running late with my Sockret Pal socks. I'm almost finished, so that's a plus. I know she will love them!

**ISE4 Update....

I have already ordered my yarn and I'm waiting for it to come in! I can't wait to get started! I already have a pattern in mind!!

And here's a puppy pic! This is Lexis, my In-law's puppy and she's a cutie pie!!
