We're in the middle of a cold snap and heading north. DD has State Competition for cheerleading this weekend. They compete in the morning. We have decided to spend the weekend, kind of a nice relaxing weekend away from home. My knitting bag is packed and ready to go. I'm almost finished with DD's socks that I am working on. I am using Yarn Pirate's Killer Bees it is from the sock club. The pattern is Knit Pick's Moc Crocs. It is a very simple pattern to knit up and easy to memorize. Next up on the needles is Interweave's Embossed Leaves. I am using Schaeffer Anne in shades of green. I am anxious to see how these are going to knit up. I figure that I should be able to start these sometimes this weekend. We'll be back on Sunday and I should have pictures from the competition. Stay warm.

Don't these look totally awesome! The pattern is from Knit Picks called Moc Crocs. I am using Yarn Pirate's Superwash Merino in the Killer Bees colorway. I absolutely love the way these look. I am knitting these for Knitting Daughter.

So What's on my needles? The mate to Girl's Best Friends Anklets. The pattern is from Knitpicks and I am knitting them in Koigu KPPM colorway P305 on size 1 needles. Isn't the cuff gorgeous? I managed to finish one sock in time to give it to my boss in time for our Christmas party but I am not going to have the second done by tomorrow when she returns back to work. She absolutely loved the color and the detail on the cuff.
Thank you Gill for a beautiful swap package. She sent me a gorgeous My So-Called Scarf. The colors are absolutely stunning. I have been wearing it everyday. It is the perfect length and the pom-poms at the end of the scarf are fun. She also included a magazine from England which I was unable to locate for the photo shoot. Some teas, candles, chocolate and soap. I am sure there were some others but I just didn't find them.
Thanks Gill for your thoughtfulness.
The scarf blends in very well with my bedspread doesn't it?
Cheryl from MA. sent me this wonderful swap package. I received 2 lovely soft light blue washclothes, a soap wrapped in the same soft yarn. Some candles in an elf cookie scent. A new notepad just in time because I am about to run out of my current one. A lovely snowflake mug with some delicious hot cocoa mix. A pretty silver ornament and 3 skeins of Pattons SWS. Thank you Cheryl for a lovely package. The package arrived yesterday just in time for New Years.
