Poor Shaun! He returns to school Monday, and his last week of summer vacation ought to spent doing fun outside things! I had to reschedule a Dip and Knit Poolside Party with my 2 girlfriends from high school for Thursday. Looking forward to some sun and 90 degrees again!
AMAZING! I just received the identity of my Secret Pal 11 and LO AND BEHOLD! A mysterious package came for me in the mail on Saturday from my Secret Pal 11! What a spoiler! A SWIFT!! JUST WHAT I'VE ALWAYS WANTED but have been too cheap to buy for myself!!! Look how my Ball Winder gazes upon it with longing!!! THANK-YOU SP11 PAL !!
A very sweet note accompanied the gift! Boy! This gal is on the ball! I better get my procrastinator butt in gear and start my spoilee package ASAP!
Monday's mail brought more goodies! I opened a package full of beautiful cloths and an array of colorful posties sent from my Monthly Dishcloth 3rd Quarter Exchange pal, Sharon. Thanks so much, Sharon! I adore your handiknitwork. Both are perfect colors for my kitchen! The pattern is called Reiko's Japanese Spider Lace and can be found here at K1P1 Keeping You In Stitches Studio.
I took some time to knit some cloths with the ball of red, white and blue SNC STRIPES that I received from Karen during our Dog Days Of Summer Exchange! I strayed from my passion for ballbands long enough to knit these in Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth pattern. I liked how this yarn stripes so much I went out and bought a few more in different colors. The red, beige and green one is called Holiday and is meant to be gifted to a friend!
Happy knitting, Gentle Knitter!
