Manic Monday

My Mason Dixon Swapcloth pal, Lacey, sent me a "Dye Package!" Actually, I guess I was her pal, but she has now reversed roles on me. I had admired some of her dying progress, and made mention that I had never dyed my own yarn. So she sent me a package with white cotton yarn, dye, gloves, and instructions - how thoughtful! I can hardly wait to embark on my dyeable journey!

In other news, I am becoming addicted to the online knitting community. I have officially signed up for Secret Pal 9. I am anxious to receive my pal's info and start giving! I have also signed up for Lolly's Socktoberfest 2006. Finally, an event that will force me to knit my first pair of socks, which I have been wanting to do forever! I have been secretly buying sock yarn here and there, with only one practice sock under my belt. Well, now it's time to get serious!

I'm also planning to make some changes to my blog (with a little help from a book about HTML) and have begun the Turtleneck Shrug from Scarf Style. I know, I know, like I need another WIP. But I did! I needed some "mindless knitting" to do while chatting on the phone, watching TV, etc. I am making progress with L's Column of Leaves Scarf, but it takes my full concentration - definitely not mindless. Needless to say, lots going on in my krafty world as of late!

I have just finished my first pair of socks and am itching to start another. I can see how adictive they can be. I joined SP9 as well, it's a fun little (huge) world of knitters on-line!

I never thought socks would be so fun to knit. I LOVE turning the heel. It is the magic of how the sock comes together that intrigues me.. My next challenge will be toe up socks.. I joined Lolly's Socktober fest also... Can't wait to see what you create. Ü
