KMKS and stuff

Tuesday was the mailing day for KMKS - here is what I sent to my pal!

She is getting the Lucy Neatby Fiesta Mittens pattern, two skeins of Lorna's Laces and a skein of Claudia Handpainted, a project bag, a book of spiral-bound index cards in a plastic cover and two types of dark chocolate. I hope she likes it!

As it turned out, the person who had me as a KMKS pal needed to mail my package a few days early, so mine actually arrived on the official mailing day. I am very pleased with the things I got!

Thank you so much Trish! (who, sadly, is blogless) She sent me the Whitewater Wristwarmers pattern from MagKnits, which I had not seen before and really like, along with two skeins of Wildfoote sock yarn in a very nice chocolatey brown to use for the pattern. I also got an adorable felted bag, a set of dpns, a cable needle, an assortment of hand care products and a copy of Craft magazine!

I've also been busy with the knitting this week. I finished the top-secret project I have been working on, but had yarn leftover so I returned it to the yarn store. As luck would have it, they had just received a new shipment of Nashua yarns and I managed to get some Wooly Stripes to make these:

It was easier to just take two pictures than attempt to get out the tripod and use the timer to get a pic of the wristwarmers on both hands at the same time.

In the process of taking those two pics, I took this picture quite by accident and in fact, didn't even realize it until I looked through the images stored on the camera. But here is a rather nice picture of Nashville's gloomy skies today:

And finally, here is a new sock! I'm calling this one Class Sock because I was recently asked if I would like to teach a Magic Loop class at the lys! We will be doing the sock toe-up with a short-row heel, using worsted weight yarn. I did 3x1 rib, but people in the class will be able to do whatever they would like. The yarn is Lorna's Laces in Sand Ridge.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
