FO's, Yarn POrn and updates


Yes, you read correctly, finished objects. I have my Monkey Socks for my Monkey Swap pal completed as of last week and in the mail. They turned out great after a couple bad starts and I really love the cotton. Here they are, a gorgeous blue/white variegated Meilenweit cotton and I will be making a pair for myself in the near future :)


I also completed my bag for the HSKS3 swap and it too has been mailed. This was my first time knitting with 2 colors and also using Patons SWS. What a soft yarn it is and I heard it is great for felting too. I just love how the bag turned out so much so I ordered a bunch of wool from Knit Picks to make more bags/hats/mittens etc, hehe. My Hogwarts Sock Swap socks are also coming along, just the foot on each I'm working on. Sorry no pics yet, maybe before the end of the week ;)

YARN PORN


My yummy Wollemiese package arrived last week all wrapped up so beautifully I had to take a picture before opening it. Take a look at the gorgeous skeins. I am in love, hehe and the service was excellent. It only took 8 days to get the package all the way from Germany to boot. I will be ordering again :)

Family update, well the boys just got over tonsillitis we took a turn for the worse over Thanksgiving holidays. The little guys and myself wound up at the Doctor's office Tuesday and I had pneumonia(once again). Friggin unbelievable, going from a cold to that. The Doctor I seen too was not our normal Doc and they suspect the little guys and possibly myself may have asthma(which would explain why we get sick so easily). We are supposed to check in with her in a few weeks after they are cleared up to get tested so right now they have an inhaler just in case.

I'm really bagged, it was a long day today. I went on Collin's class field trip to the Fire station and had a blast. I'll post a pic of him when I find the cord to my camera again.
