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.
