A Couple of Nice Surprises
Okay, so maybe nice isn’t the right word. Today has been an exhausting day, one in which I worked four hours on my feet at the LYS, and then went home to take my Mom on her errands. Hurray. When I sat down to read my blogs this evening, I got a couple of nice… make that great… surprises.
The first is my downline Secret Pal finally got her reveal package from me. I’ve been waiting for over a week to hear from her, and finally did this evening. She’s Aussie Michelle of The Knitting Muso, and I’ve had a blast spoiling her with knitting stuffs. She’s an accomplished pianist and instructor, and a knitting machine. I hope you enjoy reading about her knitting and not-so-knitting adventures, as I have these past few months.
The second nice surprise is hearing from my fellow Knitty Gritty Knitster Carolyn. She has committed to keeping her blogging going, so head on over to JollyEwe to read about her really great knits. Hopefully, we’ll be able to meet up at Stitches West for some reunion knitting on a sofa. Anybody else interested in meeting up?
The other really great surprise came from Chrissy, the Knittin’ Mom, who is the hostess of the Sock-a-month kals. I won a prize package for SAM 2, enough yarn for 6 more pairs of socks. Woo hoo! I joined SAM 2 to motivate me to keep knitting socks, and I knit at least 1 pair for each of the 6 months. I think my total was 8 pairs at the end of the kal. If this ain’t the best incentive to sign up for SAM 3, I don’t know what is. I’ve already convinced sknitty, annette, and seattle marie to join in on the fun for SAM 3. Won’t you join us?
