Thank you, One Skein Secret Pal!

The spoilage continues! Please don't hate me because I've got awesome secret pals. Look what came in the mail yesterday from my One Skein Secret Pal: A beautiful skein of Wool in the Woods Helix (97% Cotton, 3% Nylon) in gorgeous purply-pink colors (my favorite!). Along with that came the book Knit One, Kill Two by Maggie Sefton, which includes a knitting pattern and recipe for cinnamon rolls. There was also a cute little book on the history of knitting, two note pads with my initial, and an adorable sheep measuring tape. Last but not least, some yummy Godiva chocolates that almost didn't make it to picture-taking time. Thank you sooooo much, O/S Secret pal! You rock!

And now for some knitting progress. I'm almost ready to start the heel on my Mock Croc Socks. Though not officially addicted to sock knitting yet, I am loving the portability of this project and the fact that I don't have to consult the pattern constantly because it is so intuitive. And I will admit to finding myself browsing the sock yarn section of yarn stores wondering what this yarn or that yarn would look like knitted up into a sock. But I have resisted buying until I see how this pair turns out.

There is still a movie line contest on the table. The current line is:

"I almost had to wait."

More lines from the same movie:

"A falsetto child?"


"I just. ate. a bug."

Good luck to all!
