Another wonderful package

I have been meaning to blog about the second package that I got from my wonderful SP12 spoiler.  My birthday happened to fall within the timeframe of the Secret Pal exchange and she sent me a package for my birthday.  I’m glad she didn’t give up one me when I had the snafu with the shipping address I gave for this.  Now on to the goodies she sent me:

She sent me a huge package of gummi bears (I like gummis, but so does DS)  She also sent me some beautiful stitch markers and a stitch saver.  I have been wanting one of the stitch savers for a while, so that was a great gift.  They are beautiful.

Aren’t they all pretty.  I love the Bling!!!  Thank you so much SP, you are the best!! Continue reading

Question of the week # 9

Have you ever entered your knitting (or anything else) in the fair? Would you ever consider it?

I have never entered any of my knitting in a fair or contest of any kind.  I don’t think it’s good enough.  Those judges at the fair are tough, man, and any little mistake will be a death knell…Nope never have and don’t have any plans to do so.

Another Blog update (this time with pictures)

I am a member of Secret Pal twelve and every week there is a new question posted.  I have gotten behind and haven’t answered the questions for the last two weeks, so without further delay, here are the answers for weeks 7 and 8:

What is(are) your favorite place(s) to knit? I would have to say, at least right now, my favorite place to knit is in my seat in the truck.  I can knit while we go down the road and still be able to help when I need to and be in the middle of the family.

What supplies (besides yarn & needles) make the setting perfect for knitting?  Something to drink (warm if it’s cold outside and cold if its warm) and my ipod with either audiobooks or podcasts on it to knit with.

What is your favorite supper for a hot summer evening?  One of my favorite hot weather suppers is a large salad or fruit salad.  There is nothing better than getting fresh fruits or vegetable and tossing them all together to make something that is light but nourishing.

I should be all caught up with the questions for Secret Pal twelve now, but I do finally have pictures to post of the package that I got from my upstream pal.  She sent it to me a long time ago, but through no fault of hers, (I had given her the wrong address and then couldn’t remember which address I had given and then had to track it down at the itty bitty little post office that I had it sent to) I hadn’t been able to post pictures.  My mom finally got the package and opened it for me and took these pictures:

here is a really sweet project bag with bees all over it and as you can see sticking out of the bag there is a skein of yarn.  Mom is not a knitter, so she didn’t know that you need to put the yarn out there seperately so that we can see it, but I promise that as soon as I actually get my hands on it, you will see what kind and what the yarn looks like.

Who but Trader Joe would come up with 100 calorie  packages of chocolate…not only is it chocolate, but it is super smooth Belgian Chocolate.  Now that may or may not be there when I actually get to my mom’s to pick up this package.  She may claim this as a finder’s fee 😉

Next on the list is a selection of three patterns:

The first on is Twisted Flower Sock by Cookie A;  the second is the Saucy Sock Pattern by Cider Moon; and the last one is Poseidon socks pattern, probably by Elinor Brown.  And finally, she sent me a letter with the package that had little animal print cutouts on the corners of the letter.  A very nice package and Thank you, Thank you, Thank you SP!!!!!!
