It's been a busy day in blogland as I learned the identities of my spoilers from SP8 (Wendy) and the One Skein Secret Pal exchange (Maribel). I got to reveal myself to my SP8 spoilee Madame Purl and my One Skein Secret Pal Diane. It's been great fun checking out everyone's blogs and seeing how much the spoilees liked their packages, and finding out more about who was spoiling me. I've added everyone's names to my blogroll and hope to see you all now and again.
In knitting news, I've finally learned the magic loop method of knitting socks. As you all know, I've signed up for the Sock Wars, and even though I don't have much hope of making it past the first round, I wanted to give myself at least a fighting chance. I'm practicing by working on Ellie's Eyelet Socks for the Mystery Sock KAL, and I have to say that I'm really loving this pattern. I'm using Rowan Wool Cotton and it feels very soft. I can't wait to wear this pair of socks. Here is a better picture of the true color of the yarn.I wasn't able to finish this pair of socks in time to be counted for the month of August for SAM2 due to the bronchitis I had, but now it's knitting in earnest time again.
And speaking of socks, I've signed up for Sock-ret Pal. Click on the button below for more information.
If it sounds interesting to you, I'd love to see you there!
