Alyssa's picks from Take and Replace Green Team
Alyssa chose the sock yarn and the wrist wrap. I love that sock yarn, and figured it would go fast!!! Karen, get ready to receive the box soon!
If you noticed, I decided to zigzag the places in the USA that the boxes were going. There were too many east coast knitters to make it fair in terms of the little race involved to get the boxes back to me! Both teams have a shot at coming in first. Yes there will be some little prize for the first place team. It will be a raffle among you for a yarn prize. Just an added incentive to get the box to the next knitter who is eagerly waiting to play.
Knit LIfe around here these days involves a scarf I am knitting in Wool In the Woods dark colorway. Lynne of I Was Knit Together in My Mother's Womb blog, asked me to test knit. ME! Your very very average knitter. Flattery will get you everywhere! It is a fun and easy pattern so far.
I am also still working on the alpaca sox. I finished the first sock last night and cast on the second. I have to say I really enjoyed knitting up the Bicycle Hat this week on big honkin needles with fat yarn! I think the variety was good for my hands and wrists.
I am so happy my knitting and blogging mojo is back in full swing. A few other things I am happy about:
*the Swap is working out great!
*I have started to feed the birds again, and love seeing them come to the feeder
*juncos are back. I think there should be a yarn colorway called Junco
*snow, I just love it this time of year.
*Sweetheart hearts are out again. Such a lowfat treat.
Have a Happy Saturday!
I talk more in the comments!
