Still here!

I'm still here. Between my stomach and massive amounts of knitting, I've been busy. I'll take some finished object pictures, I've finished two pairs of socks and almost finished some thrummed mittens.

In mail news, I received my last package from my SP11 pal, which Ace is peering into. It had the most yummy cookies, beautiful etsy yarn, dishcloth yarn and other coolness.

Then, I got my Ravelry Christmas swap package. Look at that knitting bag. With my name on it! As a Camille, it's a sad rite of childhood that I never had anything with my name on it. No one makes Camille pencils, bike plates, etc. That was before the dawn of the internet where that problem is easily solved.
Oh, there was also a mass of kitchen cotton (swoon! new brand I've never tried!), and purple and green Tofutsies. Purple and green always make me happy. The cookies are gone and I'm about to delve into a cuppa tea.

That blurry picture is my new sock project from Woolgirl's Sock Club. It's hard to see, but there's nupps on them. They are a royal pain in the wrist, but it's gorgeous. Just hard to photograph with my poor camera.

Work is busy, home is busy. I've been mainly happy with everything except my spending habits. This week I switch to cash only. I'll make any online purchases and then everything else will be cash. Fun, eh? I'm considering some other financial plans for the new year, but that's a little personal and not too yarn related. So that's where I'm at.

I hit send without realizing my comment wasn't finished...
Anyway, I hope you've enjoyed all of your SP11 packages and I hope I sent you some goodies you like. That green hand dyed yarn I just sent was a favorite of mine... hope you enjoy and I hope I was a good spoiler.

While there were plenty of things labeled for a Rachel....there weren't many things for a Rachael...You can imagine my delight at finding a necklace with my name, spelled correctly on it...true it was a child's necklace, but once I switched chains that didn't matter!

I am contemplating getting involved in more swaps is SP11 (which I assume will become SP12 next year) a good one?

Glad you liked the Christmas Swap from Ravelry. I had fun making/putting it together. The yarn bag was "special" to do for you! Enjoy it all! :)
