Wow, long time no post!

I've been busy with Jury Duty this past month and haven't really been doing much else. I did make these though...

I edited a pattern from Lisa Loyd.

Had to make quite a few changes to get the sock to look a bit neater, but I think they came out great! I'm giving them to my Best Friend, Rhonda!

I started an afghan with my Aurora 9, but no pictures of that yet.

Happy Knitting!

My PRGE Pal, Elspeth, is very sweet.

She sent me a card with some stitch markers in it the other day. Then yesterday I got a package with some yarn and a little photo album. She added some coffee candies too!I wonder what I should make with this new yarn?

Thanks Elspeth!!

My Secret pal sent me...

I got 2 skeins of Patons wool and bamboo yarn that is really soft and changes colors at just the right time! I love the colors! They are totally ME. I also got cute stitch markers and some chocolate covered espresso beans!! Yum!

This was a wonderful suprise to come home to! Now that we are going to get more snow tomorrow, it will be nice to sit and knit with this comfy yarn!!

Thank you so much! The gifts are just perfectly chosen for me!

2 Scarves done

I finished my scarf made out of the yarn my PRGE Pal sent me! I love it!

Before I could finish this one, I had to make this Dragon for my son! I got the kit from Morehouse Farm.

PRGE Pal Gift!

I got a wonderful birthday surprise! My pal sent me 2 skeins of 127 Print Filaturo DiCrosa wool in a beautiful colorway! I just couldn't wait to use it so I already started knitting with it!! I love it! I also received a nice Birthday Card and some chocolate (yumm!) that isn't in the picture because my son and I ate it already!! hehe

Thank you so much! I love the way this yarn knits! It's fantastic!!
