Socks & Swaps

I'm very excited to have finished the Broken Rib Socks (from the book "101 Designer One-Skein Wonders) I was working on. I made them with Lion Brand Fisherman's wool in Natural Brown. Unfortunately, I made the foot too short on the first one and didn't want to frog it back. So, I made the next one to match and I'll gift them to someone with slightly smaller feet than I. :) Its all good!

I also received my November Dishcloth Exchange Package from Jil in my "Getting To Know You" Dishcloth Knitters group. The theme was Supermarket Checkout, meaning that you needed to include an item from a supermarket (or K-mart, Wal-mart, etc.) checkout line. It could be useful or not, funny, etc. Being from Arkansas, Jil sent me an official Razorback's snout! LOL! As you can see below, it was a big hit at my house. I received a lovely green dishcloth in a classic pattern, too. Additionally, I received two balls of yarn; one Sugar 'N Cream Twists and a Lion Brand Incredible novelty ribbon yarn. My other goodies include various tea, coffee & creamer samples and an entire jar of chicken bullion cubes! Yum! Just the things for cold winter days. :) Here are my goodies:

Thank you, Jil!! :)

I'm still in the pattern selection stages of my Baby-A-Baby Swap. I'm very excited to get going on something though. :)

I'm working on one item for my Scavenger Hunt Swap that could fit either of 2 categories. I guess I'll decide where it goes after I fill the other categories. I've got a few ideas for the other categories now, too, after re-reading my spoilee's blog. :)

That's about it for now. I have a fun "thingy" that I was tagged for to post later, too.
