Less Than One Week

OK 5 days from now I will be almost Flinging in Missouri at the Loopy Ewe Spring FLing

  • . It is going to be a ball....Wendy of WendyKnits , Cookie A Claudia from Woolmeise, Stacy from Tempted Yarns, Numma Numma...and others of knitting fame will be there. Goat Lady and I have become email friends and I am so excited to meet her.

  • I have received my bag from the Big Bag KAL and Swap from Cindy. It is the perfect colors for many wonderful things inside as well. My pal's bag will be winging its way the day I return from the Fling.

    Projects for the Fling will be Wendy's Homework, Coookie A's homework, Rogue, a Tam I think I will start from the silver yarn from Tempted Yarns, my ongoing glove, and a pair or two of socks.

    I am in the Loopy Ewe Swap second round and have received Janice aka JarLady as my Pal. Janice is Sheri's good friend and it is a bit intimidating. You are to knit something for your Pal with yarn from the LE....I already have started my project but of course cannot post it.

    I treated myself to the needle binder from Namaste, it matches my knitting bag from the LE. I purchased it from KPixie which is one town over and I received it less than 24 hours after ordering!!!I must check out if they have a real store

    I also won a prize from round one of the No More Humdrum Mittens Swap. Deb sent me the much coveted pattern for the Fiddlehead Mittens and yarn to make them. They will be glorious!!!!

    My Harry Potter socks are done and will be mailed by the end of the week. My box from the second mitten swap is making its way to me. It is from Katie of YarnLove, yes that HyarnLove...I can't wait to see what I get. The mittens are made for DS1 GF per my request and katie hand dyed and spun the yarn. Oh lookie, here is the package. The mittens have a top that buttons off, they were designed by Katie, the yarn is lovely and silky soft and look at the wonderful yarn she sent!! WOW!!

    OK I am on the 4th of 6 in a row then a night off one last shift and off to Missouri.

    Puppy update, 3 weeks since his ;last appointment, we have had him 4.5 weeks, he is 15 weeks old and is up to 32,5 pounds...lordy. He is so cute and is scheduled for his surgery(yes that surgery) the Monday I return from the FLing.

    This is some Malabrigo I purchased on EBAY. It is called Hummingbird...I am a sucker for green/violet colorway.....

    DH has passed along a request for one of these, a laptop wooly jumper

    Wow, lots to get updated on. Love that fact that you are becoming smitten with dogs. You seem to have been bitten by some type of bug that makes you want to be surrounded by them. Next...who knows?! You always seem to have the best yarns migrating into your stash.
    Enjoy the gathering and take lots of pics.

    I am so jealous that you get to go to the Loopy Ewe Fling! It sounds like it will be so much fun. Enjoy yourself, and don't buy too much (tee-hee).

    I'l bet you've been super busy since you got back! I was just wondering if you got my swap package from HSS3. I sent it on April 23 priority mail. Could you let me know if it arrived safely?
