Rockin Sock Club, month one *SPOILER ALERT*

Guess what came in the mail today? My first month's Rockin Sock Club! WOO HOO!!

I was so good all week in not heading to places/blogs/chats of where there could be a spoiler. I really wanted to be surprised and boy was I! I think the great thing about this club is that you never know what you are going to get. This month's colors are clearly out of the box for me and I like it!!
The colorway is Dragon Dance and it is made out of 100% Superwash Merino - Lightweight, with 360 yards. The pattern made for it is Serendipity by Adrienne Fong.

Although before I can cast off I need to complete my other off to knit I go.

I leave you with the latest picture of my Christmas Cactus...

Another illness...

I'm really getting sick of being sick. I've been knocked off my feet since Friday. While I'm still not out of the woods yet, my hope is that I will be by this coming weekend.

One thing learned: when you start to feel yourself getting a bit under the weather, SLOW DOWN! I've realized that I don't do this, it actually takes me going down for the count to actually take some 'get well' time.

Maybe this is something I need to work on this year...besides finishing my second pair of socks!?

Stitch Markers - Winter Swap

I finished and mailed out my stitch markers to my swap partners today. Here is a sneak peak:
I made them up nice and light by using the acrylic crystals. All of my partners liked the same colors (blue/green) so, I made up 15 and used a grab-bag method of which ones each would receive.

I had a hard time mailing these, as there were quite a few that I really wanted to keep for myself!

I hope them enjoy them!

New Quiz...

hopefully my MIL and BE will enjoy this one better than the flower one! LOL

You Are a Gingerbread House

A little spicy and a little sweet, anyone would like to be lost in the woods with you.

Only 8 months and 16 days

until my Birthday. No time like the present to start with a Birthday Quiz:

You excel at anything difficult or high tech.
In other words, you're a total (brilliant) geek.

It's difficult for you to find people worth spending time with.
Which is probably why you'll take over the world with your evil robots!

Your strength: Your unfailing logic

Your weakness: Loving machines more than people

Your power color: Tan

Your power symbol: Pi

Your power month: July

Also for our bunny photo of the week:It is so funny that she hangs her foot out the side of the second level panel.

I'm in a knitting funk. I've turned my heels (YIPPEE!!), now I'm hung on the gusset pick up stitches. UGH! When am I going to be able just to knit from start to finish without pausing at each change?
