Late Post and Hurricane Sock Update

I realized yesterday that I had not posted a picture and a big thank you to Amanda for spinning some yarn for me and I am sending out a big apology in addition to an even bigger thank-you!!



It has been a crazy two weeks, one week for vacation (now don't go picturing a beach and little umbrella drinks).....NO.....we were working....for SIX days straight!! Trying to tackle the rather large list of things that need doing around the house! THEN....to add insult to injury, the day we finished our porch (Day 6 of said vacation) and got everything settled with the intentions of enjoying a Sunday of doing ABSOLUTELY nothing.........I got sick and was sick all last week.....SOOOOO...I am a bit behind!!

I bring you Yarny Goodness!!



The color is not great as it is cloudy today...but isn't this yarn BEAUTIFUL??? The yarn on the left is It Takes Two Baby. I saw this yarn on Amanda's blog and absolutely fell in love with the color!! Amanda graciously offered to spin some for me!! So I not only have some awesome yarn....but it was spun just for me!!!!


Upon receiving the pkg. I not only had a skein of the yarn but a little center pull ball which Amanda included so I could swatch!! AND....if that wasn't enough she added in a skein of Moondance....which my camera did NOT do justice to EITHER skein of yarn....but it reminds me of grape Kool-aid!!


Amanda, thank you SOOOO much for your time and generosity!! I can only imagine how hectic life must be for you yet you took the time for me and I am most appreciative!!!!!! Words can't express!!!!


ALSO......I am down to the foot of my Hurricane Sock Party sock.


Again, the colors don't show up great....but I hope my sock mate will be happy with the colors....I know the brand yarn is one that she likes.....that's all I'll say now....don't want my sock pal to guess I'm her mate!!

I'm doing a life list (which you can see on my blog) and DEFINITELY one of the the things I want to do is learn to knit. Your yarns are so cool!!

Awwww, isn't Amanda sweet? The yarn is spectacular. Your socks are looking great girl. I still smile at how fast you learned! You are such a fast learner!

Isn't Amanda's yarn great?!? She really inspires me. Your sock is looking fab too! Maybe one of these days I'll join a sock swap.

Definitely some yarny goodness. Love the Bloomin' Feet kit for Amanda...where ever did you find lavendar honey...I'm still searching. And hoping that hurricane sock is for me...looks a little Black Bunnyish.
