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


SP 12 Question for week 6

Questions #6
What is your favorite type of project to take along on holiday/vacation?  I like to take things that are small and portable, usually socks.  I can take one or a pair of socks in a small bag and always have something to knit while on vacation and still not have a lot of stuff to haul around.

New SP12 question

What would you consider the perfect amount of stash?

That is an incredibly hard question.  I know that my stash is not the perfect amount of stash because it is predominately sock yarn.  I think it needs to be balanced so that if you want to knit something out of worsted weight, you have some of that…if you need some DK you have that, etc.  I don’t want to have the amount of stash that was linked to. That would overwhelm me.  I have a fairly healthy stash, but if I want to do anything but socks or scarves or fingerless mitts, I need to purchase more yarn.

Secret Pal Twelve Questions

For the Secret Pal Twelve swap, the moderators have decided that they were going to ask a question of the week every week…I missed last weeks, but I will answer it now and answer this weeks.

Favorite Summertime Drink:  I think that my favorite summertime drink is a strawberry limeade from Sonic or half sweet and half unsweet iced tea with LOTS of lemon.  It makes it almost an Arnold Palmer, but I control the sweetness and the amount of lemon.

The question for week two is:

As a kid, what did you look forward to most about summer vacation/break/holiday?

I think that the thing I looked forward to the most was the sleeping in and getting to do what I wanted to during the day.  No school, wasn’t that the best?

Now I need to get knitting, or at least finishing my knitting projects for the baby.
