Happy days of summer

I've sent out my swap package to Paula. I'm very excited for her to get it. I picked goodies I thought she'd like but had a very hard time with chocolate. This is one of her favorite things, especially dark.....But it's summer and mailing chocolate with wool is asking for a tragedy. But I think she'll be happy.
This is the first SOS08 sock. I have cast on for the second sock today and hope to be finished by Friday. This is the Ginny Weasley pattern and I am using Chewy Spaghetti in the Sunset colorway.

I'm hoping the new bag I ordered from Loopy to come tomorrow. Also, I am waiting on my swap package from Kellie. Yup, I'll be checking out the mail before my husband!

Forever and a day

Since I haven't updated in forever I thought I would today.

I have been working on non sock project. Trying to finish everything so I can go "whole hog" into SOS'08. I have plans to knock out socks from my stash that I have been wanting to knit. I'm very excited to get going.


This weeks focus is finishing up my Loopy Swap II package. I'm am picking up goodies and finishing the knitting. Looking good for my deadline.


Since my last post I've finished my Lace Ribbon Scarf



Also finished my Husbands Afghan
I have also worked on this basic Triangle Shawl made from Mountain Colors Mohair in Tamarack
And...... Loopy was spotted vacationing with the gnomes in my yard. It was very exciting! One of the Gnomes was overheard saying "It was great that Loopy got to GNO ME on a more personal level!"
