In knitting and yarn news...I received a couple of wonderful packages last week. One from the Loopy Ewe. I love that store. This was the first time that I've ordered from them but definitely not the last. They have super fast shipping and great customer survive. If you haven't checked out their page yet you should!!! I love the new wish list feature on their page.Dream in Color Worsted weight yarn in "Cocoa Kiss" this will be for my Koolhaas hat. ShiBui Knits sock yarn in "Peacock" I can't wait to cast on socks with this lovely yarn. In the package she sent the coolest little cards to keep track of all my needles. Lord knows I could use these to organize my needle stash before I buy more.
I also received my Rockin Sock club yarn. Love this Lenore colorway. It couldn't have come at a more perfect time. My mom requested a scarf and gloves for Christmas. So I cast on for the Montego Bay scarf from Interweave Knits Summer 2007 on Wednesday of last week and I am about 50 inches in. Only about 10 more inches or so to go. She wanted a scarf that she could wear while she golfed. I am glad that I am almost done with this scarf. It's an easy mindless knit but it's starting to get old ya know me I don't like one project monogamy :) But I have a deadline. Gotta get it done!Started decorating for Christmas. I got the tree up today while the boys were at school. I haven't decorated our tree in 6 count them 6 years. I had forgotten how small our tree was. This will be the first Christmas in 5 years that I wont be going home for the holidays. I miss you mom and dad. We decided that we were going to stay in Germany this year because we will be moving to Washington in a couple of months and we can see our family once we get back to the good Ol' US of A I can't wait!Well I know I was a slacker the past couple of weeks, I will be posting again as soon as I finish my moms scarf and cast on for here gloves (hopefully before Christmas comes!!). Happy Knitting all sorry again, and thanks for reading.
Oh yeah I forgot one more thing...back in October I won a Halloween contest on Sock-a-holic's blog. She sent me the most wonderful goodies and yarn. I just received it last Monday when I got all my other goodies. It was sitting in my CMR since October 22nd. I check my mail almost everyday and they told me that I didn't have any packages. Guess they need to look harder next time. Oh well better late then never right?! She send me some of her fantastic LoveSticks self stripping yarn, a cute little key chain a duck dressed like a mummy for Halloween, and some beautiful post cards with pictures of her yarn. Check out her shop here. Talk to you all later
