A package arrived from Canada the day before. This was supposed to be a Christmas present, even though I don't techinically need to exchange gifts. I just like to give. Anyway, it is from:
I didn't want to give out Pinky's address in fear that you'll go and steal her yarn and she won't be able to give any more in the future. Inside are all these goodies.
My husband said, "She gave you all that yarn?" I said, "Yes! She's a thoughtful person!" (thinking to myself, "not like you! who won't even give me what I want for our 20th Wedding Anniversary, which is coming up in 2 weeks... that's a story I don't think I should tell on a blog!!!) And she even included a skein for Emily,
after I saw these socks she had knitted for her daughter:
And, she gets to subtract points from her stash! A Win-Win situation. And I get more blue yarn, YAY!
Thank you, Jennifer!!
On the knitting front, I finished clue 1 for sock 1 of the SKA Mystery Sock. I also finished clue 1 for sock 2 and am working on clue 2 now:
I also worked on more of Taygete, finishing chart B and the first row of Chart C. I have 2 more rows to complete the charts and then, starts the long, long, long, tedious process of the picot bind-off. But, I should have enough yarn to knit 4 more rows of Chart C before the long, long, long, tedious picot bind-off.
The Picot Bindoff will be in the purple. Should be interesting to see how well the colors pull together.
I've been good - haven't started on a new other new socks - second sock or first sock... but once I finish my clue 2 on both socks, I'm sure I'll need to cast on SOMETHING!
Hope you're having a good week. I've been so busy at work and got paged twice and got up in the middle of the night. I'm actually very pooped but I want to knit a little before going to bed.
