After the sock swap that I was in I decided to make the secretary at the school I work at a pair of socks for her birthday which was the end of April. I used yarn that I got from Yarn Pirate. It is called Icicle. This was my first attempt at a cable and it was very easy to do. She loved them so much that she asked if I would make a pair for her sons girlfriend. So I am in the process of making hers now. I am using the pattern Socks of Kindness. This is made with Trekking that I got in a swap.
This is amazing two posts in one month.If you read my profile it says that I am a mother of a 9 yr old, well that is not true anymore. I am now the mother of a 10 yr old. I didn't have a birthday party for him instead we just had cake at home. But seeing as he turned 10 I figured I needed to play a joke on him, so I bought those magic candles that relight. We could actually send smoke signals there was so much smoke from them. But he enjoyed it. Then it was time for opening presents. He wanted a Gamecube so I bought him one. Doesn't he look so happy? Oh yeah I forgot his birthday was April17th.
I know it has been awhile. As you read in the last entry that I made I had joined a swap with some of the women my sister knits with. Well we did the swap in April( I know a little late) and I just wanted to share with you as to what I recieved in my swap. My swap partner was Julie and boy did she spoil me. I had stated that I wanted to learn how to do cables. I would list everthing that she got me but there is to much so here are the pictures.I just realized the things that are missing are the two needle rolls that she made for me. Does anybody see a color theme going on? I absolutely love everthing that I got. We had so much fun that night. If you want to see more pictures go here. We are actually going to be doing another swap for Halloween. We already have our swap partners.
