That's right! I finished another pair of socks. I'm not sure if I can really 'count' these because of their size, but I think I will. After all, they are socks and there are two of them that match.. thus making a pair!! Actually, this was a knitting swap that Kirstin and I did. She wanted a mini pair of socks to hang from her rear view mirror, and I wanted some new dishcloths. This is the yarn she chose: Perchance To Knit in the Sheri Baby colorway. Aren't they fun? I can't wait to make myself a pair in these fun bright colors.
And here are the dishcloths that she made for me. I love the colors! I prefer to just look at them and let someone else actually USE them, however!
The mailman came yesterday and brought me the FUNNEST package from Allison!! Allison knits hats for those undergoing Chemo and challenged us to knit some hats and send them to her to donate to Relay For Life. Out of those who sent in hats, she chose one lucky knitter to receive a prize package that she had put together.. and I was that lucky person!! Several of the items she had collected on her recent cruise to Alaska.. including some amazing yarn from Sitka! Also included was this very fun tote; some wonderful smelling soap from Alaska; an Alaska pen and an LED Ear Lite similar to what she and her mom used when knitting at night for Relay For Life. (Click on picture to enlarge and get a better view!)
I had to show a close up of the yarn from the package. The colorway is fantastic! A great blend of purple; blue and black. Attached to the yarn was an explanation of how those who live in Alaska use the long dark winters to catch up on sleep and their hobbies (like knitting), and then by the time summer comes they are rested and ready for lots of activities. Then as the dark of winter comes, they are ready for that season etc....
It's interesting, because we had looked at living in Alaska before we came here, but I didn't think I could handle the long, dark winters. (I wasn't a knitter then!!) It still would be tough, but knitting would help!
Well, you all need to stay tuned. My next post will be my 100th and I'll be having a contest. It will involve chocolate. That's all I'm saying.
Until Next Time.....
