Been Busy!

Ok, it doesn't look like much, but trust me, it took all day to get this organized. Believe it or not there is a method to the madness. The top is notions, needles and bags. The green is large amounts of yarn for projects. (like kits and sweater-amounts). The rest is yarn, yarn and more yarn. I went through it all and made sure that everything was actually logged in Ravelry.

Sorted through, some will get donated, like this pile of acrylic.... Honest, I thought I'd make everyone scarves.

Finished Objects... No longer marked as Holiday Surprises, the Packer set was for a very good friend of mine, the Maze hat was for son. It's not blocked yet but the hard part is done.

Lastly, new glasses! They are fun, funky and green. Best of all, I can see better!

blogging with obligation

I normally blog without obligation but I know that my friend, the hospital knitter, is going to come here tomorrow to look for a new post so I better do one!

I've added my works-in-progress to the navigation bar. Right now I'm working primarily on the holiday surprises. (specifically the one for ???? because the other one is the Maze Hat for son that I've mentioned before and I think it has some sizing issues and he has enough presents coming he won't notice if I get it done late)

My son had his holiday concert last week so he wore the sweater I made last year. As you can tell, he's quite the goofball when he wants to be. (and he really needs to start growing back some teeth!)

One done, a bit of yarn pr0n and my rainbow

First and foremost. I got one done, isn't it lovely!

I have to say this is the best fitting and best looking heel I've done. I used Fleegle's heel method and it was wonderful. Look, no holes!!

I have to thank lovely Shannon of Unwind Yarns. I have to be one of her most problematic shipments. She's in Canada, I'm in Wisconsin. First of all, the Knotty Socks I'm working on are made of a skein of her yarn that I picked up at Stitches. So I already know I like her work so I signed up for one of her clubs. The first shipment has disappeared into the great beyond. There has been no sign of it, it never arrived and it never went back to her. She then shipped it again, this time as something similar to our Priority Mail. That one went back to her marked Return to Sender but not by me! She tried a third time, this time combining my first and second club shipments since the second one was ready to go out. That one finally reached me! And look how lovely it is! The needle roll and small project bag were included. (Plus she included a couple packets of my absolute favorite hot chocolate mix Land O'Lakes)

Now, to the rainbow... I stole this idea from Apryl

Your rainbow is shaded yellow and green.


What is says about you: You are an intelligent person. You appreciate optimism. Those around you admire your fresh outlook and vitality. You're good at getting people to like you.
