Cadbury Fudge Bar

So as a treat, John and I just split the cadbury fudge bar that I got
from my secret pal! Oh my! It is soooo delicious! I will have to check
our local little British goods store to see if they have any! Yum!

Secret Pal Package!

I received a package from my secret pal today! Imagine my surprise to
see it came all the way here from Ireland! I have always wanted to visit
Ireland since there is some Irish way back in my family! One day I will
get there...

So on to the contents! My pal sent me a skein of Regia sock yarn with
beautiful colors including green, blue, a deep red and a deep orange!
Also included was a cute little notebook which I can use to take notes
on my socks-in-progress and a canvas book bag that is the perfect size
for carrying sock projects to knitting groups or elsewhere. Its got all
my favorite colors on it including a lime green! And finally, I received
some Cadbury hot chocolate mix and several yummy looking chocolates!

Thank you to my secret pal for such a thoughtful package! I love
everything!!

Sorry for the bad picture....I used my sidekick 3 which takes better
pics than my 2, but not as good as my digital camera! And the background
is my dining room table all decorated for the holidays!

Pair of Jaywalkers!

I have finished my first pair of Jaywalkers. They were done in Spunky
Ecletic's Neopolitan colorway. I really enjoyed working with the yarn.
My sidekick picture really doesn't do justice to the gorgeous shades of
brown, pink and white in the socks.

I am starting my second pair of Jaywalkers (I love this pattern!) in
Koigu yarn I got from my hot socks swap. The yarn is all kinds of yummy
shades of green...so of course I love it!

Going to my knitting group this evening....will have to blog about it
later....

Fall Socks

I finally got a picture of my socks for November! They are made of
Cherry Tree Hill in the Fall Foliage colorway. I like this yarn...so
soft and comfy too! I have the Monet colorway to use on another pair
some other day....

New post

I am trying out this whole mobile blogging thing. My computer crashed a
few days ago, but it is back up and running. I should have new sock pics
up later tonight....
