Well, this makes up for having to go back to school!January 11, 2007 at 4:28 am | Posted in General Knitting | 1 Comment
So far, this has been a GOOD week. First up, Monday. I got home from my first day of classes (World History 1, Cultural Anthropology, US Government, and Racial and Ethnic Group Relations) and there was a package waiting for me from Jennifer. I won a contest at her blog and got a skein of Wool-Ease Thick and Quick and a skein of Koigu:
Also, you can see there a gift certificate to my LYS. When you spend, I think it’s $275 dollars there, they send you a gift certificate for $25. Sweet! Seeing as this is the second one of these i’ve gotten, that’s $550. Whoa….
Anyway. Skip to Tuesday. No school (I’ve got Tuesdays and Thursdays off). I finished Marion’s Swap socks. Yay!
Wednesday: I got home from school and there was yet another package waiting for me. The socks that Marion knit for Me! Check it out:
Arent they Lovely?! Holey Moley, they’re my favorite color, too. I’m so happy. I put them on and haven’t take them off since.
I sat down with the yarn and my size Q crochet hook and whipped this scarf out in about half an hour. I love my Size Q Hook. I used up practically every inch of yarn, and it’s the perfect length. Here’s a close-up:
Big Yarn + Big Hook = Big Stitches. I love this scarf. I want to go to Michael’s right now and buy more skeins to make more scarves. Fun Stuff.
One Last thing, I’ve got myself another swap partner, so I’m starting her socks tonight… once I find that sock yarn…
