First Sock

As I was saying...

The Box O'Sox from Barbara Bretton inspired me. I've slowly been working on my sock yarn stash, but something about this prize got me going.

So, I picked this yarn:

I settled down with Silver's Sock Class and made my first sock.

Seriously, *MY* first sock! I'm so excited. I never thought I'd actually do it. I've tried and tried, but it just wasn't happening. I was so discouraged, but I never gave up. HA! Take that discouragement, I made a sock! ;-)

So again, thank you Barbara for the Box O'Sox!!!

P.S. Did you know Barbara has a new book out, Casting Spells?!?!? Check it out.

Box O'Sox

I recently won a Box O'Sox from Barbara Bretton on the Romancing the Yarn blog. Barbara said, "I'll stuff as many skeins into one of those Priority Mail "shoeboxes" as I can." Did she ever! Here's the goodies:

A big THANK YOU to Barbara for the prize. This Box O'Sox inspired me, but more on that later. ;-)

Stitch Markers

Since I was participating in a couple of swaps, I wanted something a little "extra" to add for my swap pals. Whatever possessed me to go with stitch markers, I'll never know. Like I need another craft to dabble in. *rolling eyes at self* Any the way, here are my first 2 sets:

Dish Rag Tag: The Sequel

Here's what I received from Lesley:

Lesley was the first leg of the race and I was second. This was my first "race" swap and I was so nervous! I got the box Thursday afternoon and had it back in the mail Friday morning. Of course I was in a panic making sure I had everything in the box that needed to be, I forgot to take a picture of what I sent to Chris! lol

Handmade Washcloth and Soap Swap

Here's what I received from my swap pal Claire:

The dishcloth is made with Cotton Chenille (Scuba) yarn and it's so soft. The soap is Lavender and smells great. The yarn is from Peaches & Creme (Shades of Rust).

Here's what I sent my swap pal Monica:

This was a fun swap. I'm already signed up for round 2. ;-)
