Really. Most of the shopping is done, I wrapped most of the presents today, we had only fun hockey this weekend (one family had a pond hockey party for the kids and a bonfire for the grown-ups).
I got a package on Thursday, my Woolgirl Sock Club package, which I actually had forgotten about! The stitch marker is a beautiful glass bead from Mama Llama.
The little pine tree? It's a tape measure! CUTE!
The yarn is The Unique Sheep in a great green-blue color. The pattern is called Spruce Sprigs designed by Alina Egerman. Yummy! One of these days, I'm really going to have to get to a Sock Club pattern.
Also, after December 31, the sock club registrations for 2008 are going to open to the general public. It's been a great sock club, but I have to debate the allocation of my yarn budget for next year!
Pattern: Chevron & Feather Anklet Socks by Sarah Hinz on www.fortheloveofyarn.com Fall '06 issue. Yarn: Cider Moon Glacier it looks like their sales have been temporarily suspended - yikes! Needles: Takumi Clover US size 3 dpn's. Started: December 9, 2007 Completed: December 16, 2007. Another easy-peasy pattern.
Also, I wandered into Etsy a couple weeks ago wishing for a reasonably priced, cute little tote for my socks in progress. I found these, and they are crazy priced! Look at the cute little knot she ties on the zipper pull!
There was also an infusion of yarn pr0n, which I'll show you guys later this week!
I haven't wrapped any gifts yet, too busy knitting!
Yoikes! Sock yarn is addicting!
2. LOVE THE BAG - I am considering a green one, thanks to you - I'm way over the Christmas budget already - DANG IT!
3. I was also completely taken by surprise by the sock club! I loved it!
