Spoiled for Break!
It’s been a few days since I’ve been able to sit and actually blog or read blogs… it’s funny how when that happens you suddenly feel out of touch with the world… I did take time thought to read a few yesterday.. and Cass has once again hit the nail on the head… while at the same time caused me to snarf out my coffee… (does anyone remember using that word??? so late 70s)
Anyway… a few things to mention… Yesterday was my dear pal Chan’s blogoversary.. and she’s having a contest… so run over there.. I’ll wait.. 😉
Today, is sweet Monica‘s birthday! Be sure to go stop by and wish her a great day! 🙂
On Wednesday I received my Scavenger Hunt swap package… this was such a fun swap and a good one to end my ‘swapping’ for the year with… the swap was based on finding items in specific categories to send your pal… Christine was my upstream, and here’s what she sent me:
And the run down of categories:
Knit Picks Andean Silk.. YUM!
Look at that totally cool yarn Cutter… it’s like a charm for your bag!
Something to do with the Letter T
Look at my awesome new Knit tote
I totally love the pattern and colors!
Something Local: see above photo for the large jug of maple syrup.. Christine is from NH! 🙂
Oh.. yay! An alien! I was so thrilled to receive a knit buddy, I admit to being somewhat disappointed in not getting one in the Cocoa swap… so I now have my own little knit guy… 🙂 Isn’t he cute!
Pretty pretty stitch markers
Christine included 3 items (really 4) for the spoilers choice category…
this adorable fairy notebook and notecards with a cute girly sparkly pen
Knit Picks superwash in a Mountain Meadow colorway.. LOVE the colors!
See in the back corner there… ‘Favorite Socks’… I’ve been eyeing that book.. and with the lovely sock yarn she sent, and that cool knit tote I’m surely going to be casting something new on today! Christine also included some yummy coffees, tea and some gourmet cocoa! Thank you so very much Christine!
In addition to all this I also got a package from my Cocoa Swap pal Becky… she knew how much I loved the ginger candies she sent me and had been near the store where she’d found them and sent me more! wow.. that’s so sweet! (literally)
I have one finished object to record…
Clappy (Not this photo though) is really making me happy! it’s warm, and soft and super lovely.. and way HUGER than I expected (yes English majors, I know that is not a real word…)
But I love it, and I finished it just in time for the Clapotis KAL… 🙂 The end date for finishing is March 31. I will be knitting more of these lovelies… it’s such a great pattern and I can’t wait to try it in a variegated colorway!
I hope to get a better picture later… the big girl just wasn’t all that keen on playing with the camera this morning!
Ok.. so.. if you want something fun to see… Check out the parade of knit buddies at the cocoa swap is posted… 🙂 what a fun bunch of blues busters…
