New Socks!

This week I received my package from my Sockapalooza pal. They are Great and fit like a glove!
They were knit by Shari! New socks and a new blog! She used the Seduction pattern from IK knits. Very cool as I had this pattern on my list... now I can see how it looks. Thanks Shari!

She also sent me some other goodies! Like a clam chowder mix, post cards from Nova Scotia.. (her home), salt water taffy (thats almost gone) and a really really really cool star fish!

I've been so slacking on my Sockapalooza's socks. They WILL be finished though and soon. I thought I'd get them wrapped up this weekend camping. But after a couple of drinks while waiting for the pig to roast I decided it wasn't in anyones best interest to knit under the influence of alcohol. So I never knit a stitch all weekend.. but I did motor away for a while on Monday. I need to finish because I'm NOT starting anything new until they are fini! Which is really hard with the new Fall IK tempting me. Plus I already have two projects I started in the Winter/Spring that would be great for Fall if I get them done.

I got nearly all my stash of yarn on Ravelry. I thought I had all of it listed, then I remembered another hideout of mine.

I forgot to take my camera to the Pig roast campout, so much for scrapbooking that. Next time I camp in Craftsbury I'm bringing an extra blanket or two... freakin' cold up there at night! Especially those late night/early twilight trips to the outhouse. I'm thinking the alcohol in my blood kept me from freezing totally!
