Quick Updates

OK not all pics will be here now, I need to post this and then knit for a bit, then nap, as I have just returned from work, then...
I was so happy to get in on the sneak up last week with the Loopy Ewe ..the yarn was beautiful...I will post the pics in a bit. Then so kind Sheri from the same LE did an overnight sneak and I was at work and got two more skeins of yarn. I am so excited!!! I swear my hands are losing weight from all this knitting!! LOL, not that they were very big to start..I digress.
I am still plugging along on Foxie...I am sure he will soon deserve a photo session. I have been sample knitting for a past Pal, new friend. She has a line of yarns on Etsy called TV Yarns, the colors are very indicative of the shows they represent. I am 1 1/2 socks done. I will post pics of the socks after I check with Jana.
I am working on Gryffindor socks, Monkey socks, felted tote for swaps. Pics when they are completed.
I have had the yarn for the Felted Fair Isle Tote in the Holiday VOGUE Knitting since December. I planned on making the tote dor DMIL bday. I started the 1st of May, her bday is the 9th of May. I don't think she checks my blog or knows I have a blog so I feel safe in posting progress pics When this is done 14 skeins of Patons Classic wool be gone, buh buy

I received this 2nd package from my pal Angela from the PRGE. WOW what things she sent. Autumn Leaves lace sock pattern, two big skeins of Cascade in a heathered pine green, chocolates, address book, notebook, 2 year calender, photo album, pink sock change purse, CINNABON mints in a cute little tin. Pretty impressive, eh?


Oh,oh..I almost forgot..see that KAL over there>>>>>>>>.Karen's glove? LOOK!!







OK, for now that is it as cannot see anymore....must remove lenses, put on specs and knit 7 rounds on tote. I promise links and pics later.

Your are one knitting machine! I'm just as bad though, and I'm getting tendonitis in my elbow. DH suggests I lay off knitting for three weeks to see if it gets better.....no can do!
