Here is a picture of the Fantastic ISE5 swap. My partner was so generous, and the scarf is absolutelty BEAUTUFUL! She also included some tea, a chocolate bar( that didn't last long), stitch markers, and some good smelling lotion, 3 skeins of King Tutt cotton yarn (still haven't decided what to knit), oh and some candles(love them).

Look at the detail in this scarf, isn't it gorgeous!

Wiahing everyone a "HAPPY THANKSGIVING". We will be having a small get together. Then look out knitting needles here I come!

DH and I went to Warm and Wild Yarns last night to see our friend Nancy! Oh her shop is absolutely to die for.... It is always a pleasure to see Nancy and to talk knitting and see what she has been up to... I hope that the next time I'm there I remember to take the camera, because her shop is so cute and she sure has a knack for displaying things!

Jerry (dh) is going to try his hand at making spinning wheels, which should be fun and he is very much into wood working and machining.. So maybe by 2008 he will have one in progress or perhaps done..

What I'm Thankful for............... My family
My knitting friends (you know who you are...)
My Small but ever growing yarn stash

I could not help myself!

I really didn't mean to do it! Honest......... I had no intention on starting another project. But....I did start the Cre'me Heart Socks! Believe me I had enough other projects to work on, but the one I wanted to work on I could not as dh was home and they are a gift for him.

Well I will keep you posted as to the progress on the Cre'me Heart Socks!

I wanted to update you on the progress I am making on the "Wristers". This is really a fun knit and I am really learning a lot....

Ok I'm working on a Christmas gift for dh. We were at Nancy's shop a while back and he was admiring the Wristers she had knit up. So I thought, gee what a great Christmas gift those would make... I had Nancy send me the yarn and the pattern... Received the yarn yesterday, so as soon as I got home from work, I started on them! I am having a ton of fun knitting these. I just might have to get more yarn and knit another pair.
I never dreamed I could knit something like this........Sssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhh, don't tell dh!

Finally the Lime-ade socks are done and on my feet. I'll admit there are some mistakes, but, "hey" who is perfect? Besides they are for Moi! I can live with the mistakes, and let me say they feel so "good" on! Now to finsih the Waffle socks, so I can move onto some others.........

Fall Felted BAG Exchange

Finally getting around to posting about my ffb and the gifts my partner sent me! Vicki did a fantastic job, I was so pleased and surprised! I love everything and must admit, the chocolate didn't last too long. There is some really neat yarn, sling bag pattern (I'm anxious to knit this), Soduko puzzles, book written by Wendyknits, more yarn, some soaps, magnet for my frig., nivea cream that I love. All kinds of goodies... Thanks Vicki!

SOCK BLOCKERS.....................

Finally, I found the pictures of the Blockers dh makes... I really think he is talented! he is a woodworker, and also a machinist! Oh how nice it is to have a talented hubby :O)

This sock blocker has one sock that is mateless, hope I can get that resolved before 2008 gets here. It's a Waffle sock made from some yummy yarn I purchased from Nancy's shop. Its is Panda Wool and it is a Dream to Knit with!

I have to chuckle, after I posted about the missing Waffle Sock, low and behold! I found it.... The hunt lasted for about 1 1/2 hours. I thought I had looked in the knitting basket next to my chair, but apparently, I had only glanced in there. After I took out the SecretoftheStole, to work on it, there it was!

So the morel of the story is.......... Always look in the bottom of the basket! ROFLOL........

Ok, I'm either losing my mind or someone stole my partially done Waffle sock. I finsihed one and started the second and had to put it down so I could get the ISE5 swap done. I have finished the scarf and I went looking for the Waffle sock. I'm "MAD" because it was knit from this lovely Green Panda Wool I purchased at Nancy's shop, and what also irritates me is, I was knitting it magic loop, and now I need another circular. "Oh where oh where can my sock be"?

On another note, I've blocked the scarf and it comes out longer than 6 ft. Sure hope that is not too long.....
