Third Package from my Recession Swap Spoiler!

Look at this gorgeous shawl, beautiful yarn, and assorted goodies!!

In her final package, my Spoiler revealed herself to be Knitting Diva!!

She has been such a sweet, thoughtful spoiler,
somehow knowing exactly the kinds of things I like!
Thank you!!

Socks 'o Doom

My daughter has her heart set on a pair of socks I started years ago,
my first – and still unfinished! – pair of knitted socks.
I’m going to need lots of butt-kicking to stick with these monsters!
In the past week, I almost evened out the cuffs on the two socks.
Each sock gets a ball of blue yarn, and half the other ball.

Boundaries, Parents, Kids, Needs, Wants, Feelings

These things are all so complicated, aren’t they?

Tapis Delivered – Suspense!

I’m in suspense, wondering if the Colinette Parisienne Tapis yarn delivered to
Knitted Gems is the right yarn for her baby shawl!
