Wow! What a great thing a wishlist. In one of my swaps I found that my pal had a wish list, me being a little DUH at times didn't really know what one was. After checking hers out I found a lot of good ideas for her that i know that she will love instead of sending her something that she would never want or use. So I made one too. Hopefully more to come Unfortunately I don't know how to link but it works if you just copy it and paste it in the address bar http://www.theloopyewe.com/wishlist/show/19602/?token=86f2338fd530

I Shipped my HSS3 package

Yea! I shipped my HSS3 package and it should arrive to its new home today. I can't wait till she gets it. I was so excited to get it in the mail. I bought a chest and stained it then filled it with all kinds of goodies. Her socks in her house colors, sock yarn, a keychain sock blocker, lots of harry potter candy, 2 pairs of needles from knit picks, some patterns and some candles. I hope she enjoys it.

Just wanted to give a big thanx to my best friend for everything that she does for me. I really appreciate everything. THANK YOU. I know I don't say it enough. Thank You

A quiet weekend

Not to bad only 10 inches, but enough to keep me inside all weekend. With the time I had I was able to get my Magic yarn ball done for my Newbie kit Swap and my last sock for Hss3 was put on hold when my husband actually asked me to make him something. He has never asked for anything so I had to start on it right away. After digging in my stash I came up with this yarn I dyed myself. So here it is .
I was excited to get it done. It took alot longer then I thought so if we don't get anymore snow its ready for next winter. And last a picture of my package getting ready to leave on Monday hopefully i did it right and hopefully she likes it.
I put it in a basket because my balls ended up looking like eggs. LOL Did I mention I hope she likes it. Its my first swap project being sent so I'm on pins and needles.

Sick of snow

Ugh! I am so tired of snow. We are projected to get another 3-9 inches tonite on top of the 3 inches of snow and ice in my yard already from Wed. Since I have the house all nice and clean from then, kids all gone for the weekend except Jake, and hubby working all weekend, I can get some some projects of the needles and get my HSS3 package ready to go in the mail along with my magic yarn ball package. Hopefully all will go according to plan.
