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!!

I'm so glad that you like your presents! It just worked out well with the timing in regards to your birthday. I wanted to send something out much sooner, but again with the stupid identity theft. :/ I'm glad I got it out in the mail when I did, the very next day I was in for emergency surgery to have my gall bladder out.

I haven't knit with Koigu myself yet, but I hope that you like the colors. I've got your next package already started so you won't have to worry about it being a long wait between them. :) You like Orange... right? *grin*

Have a wonderful birthday!

Very nice gifts lady, and I know you will have a lot of fun using up all that lovely yarn. Sorry I missed your birthday. I didn't know when it was until reading of it just now. Hope you had a great day, and Belated Happy Birthday wises from me.

Hey Spoilee, how have you been? I hope that life is treating you well and that everything's ok.

I'm heading over to the local yarn shop tomorrow to round out your next package, I think you're really going to like what I'm sending you. :) Keep an eye out, I should have it in the mail next week!
