I've always been so jealous of my bf when i see all the wonderful packages that see gets in the mail from all the swaps she does, that i have finally got the nerve to join some myself. Since I have joined the first at the beginning of Feb. I felt confident that I could probably do another and another and yet another. I think I have become addicted. The first and were it all started Harry Potter sock swap, socks almost done and everything ready to go got til April 15 and my pal seems like a great person. The second, Magic Yarn ball Swap, this sounds like so much fun nothing i ever heard of before. The third, favorite color swap, I love all colors and shades(except yellow and orange due to my 8 yr olds new chose of room color). And last but certainly not least the international scarf swap 6, from this i will be receiving my first hand made scarf. I'm so excited, I've never made a scarf for myself. Well i suppose better get the kids up and ready for school. Did I mention I'm excited about these swaps? lol

More about me!!!!

So I thought that I would share a little bit more about me. I am relatively new to knitting so I think that I am between beginner to intermediate. I have recently joined two swaps debating a third. I am very excited about this but also very nervious that I am doing everything right always thinking have I got enough to send, should I send more, what if I'm a bad pal, what if I don't knit good enough, what if my pal hates everything and on and on. So I think that I have slightly over done it for these but I soon will find out. Lets see what else can I say about me, I often find it hard to talk about myself (often call my best friend to tell me what to write lol). Right now I have five projects in the works 1. a basic hat made with brown sidar baby bamboo and pink and brown cascade fun 2. a pair of fingerless gloves made with Noro silk garden 3. A poncho made with all alpaca and some trendsetter eyelash 4. "secret" socks for HSS3 Pal 5. a spiral sock made with paca peds and blue sidar baby bamboo enough to keep me busy for now but I will probably end up casting on yet another before finishing any of them. Well Better go watch the news and see how much snow gonna get tonite, I hate winter. Bye for now
