Calico Kitty should be ready to pounce on to the next knitter in the next couple of days. Would you send me the address of where it should be mailed?


#1828

I could give it to you, but did you try sending salmonmac a PM to get her address? Then you will be sure she is aware it is coming and let you know if she is ready for it.

Thanks!


#1829

Salmonmac already sent me her addy in a message. I plan on posting/messaging as soon as I get a chance to get the snuggle in the mail. We’re good to go!

Here is a pic of Calico Kitty before it was mailed on Wednesday.

How is everyone doing?

We’ve been crazy busy with the holiday and I was just complaining yesterday that I need a couple more washing machines just to get caught up. :teehee: We replaced our drapes with blinds and I have to wash the curtains to pack them away – but am so far behind on our regular clothes, sheets, and rugs that I don’t know when I’ll get to them! The most time-consuming part is having to wait for the washer to finish each load.

I’m currently working on a scarf (using Malabrigio Rio yarn) and I’ve started a new Baby Moderne Log Cabin blanket. It was torturous finishing the first one, but when it was done I liked it so much I decided to put myself through it all again. :doh:

I’ve also started another dachshund sweater for MIL, but we haven’t seen her since DD’s birthday party over a month ago (and not for a couple of months before that), so I’m not terribly motivated. I’m using DPN’s for the first time and actually find it equally fiddly compared to magic loop, but also easier to keep my stitches together (so I don’t have “ladders”.)

I have no pictures. My recent resolution (starting December 1) is to take more pictures, but just saying so does not seem to make it happen! :roflhard:

I have two skeins of leftover purple yarn and if I ever make it to the store, I’m going to get some more DPNs and make my daughter some leg warmers. All the patterns I’ve seen use two needles sizes, which seems odd to me. I’m planning to just get whatever metal ones Michael’s has (Boye’s, I think?) but I’m open to recommendations if any of you have a favorite. My circulars are Addis and KP Harmonys. (“Harmonies” just doesn’t seem right to me.)

Here’s what I have for outstanding blankets; [B]Calico Kitty[/B] is in progress and [B]Into The Forest[/B] and [B]Collie Cuddle[/B] are looking for more knitters:

I’ve been really busy lately too!

I can knit on either/both of the other blankets. :slight_smile:


#1833

Thanks for the info! you have been crazy busy! I am not even close to being ready for Christmas! Could you pm your address to me please. [B]Calico Kitty[/B] is ready to go!

I did received Calico Kitty on Saturday. Thank you for the goodies!!

Last night was dance class for DD and then we went to the holiday show put on by the teachers and administrators of our school district. It was so fun and they raised over $5700 for a local charity! It seems they do this every year (this was the first year we went). DD really wanted to go and DH didn’t, so I took her and left all the boys at home!

Tonight is the start of my town’s “Holiday Happening” – I don’t know which activities we’ll do, but one of my favorites is that all the downtown stores stay open until 10 pm --they call it “Shopping in Da Moonlight” – although we’ve had so many stores close this year that I’m not sure what to expect.

Tomorrow is Santa’s Workshop – a craft fair designed for kids to shop for presents for their families – a parade, and maybe a visit with Santa, if I can figure out where he will be (the last two stores that sponsored him are gone now.)

Sunday is church and rehearsal for DD’s part in our church’s “Journey to Bethlehem” production – she’ll be an angel next weekend.

Thanks for the update, Susan – I’ll PM my address to you now.


#1836

You’ve just defined busy but it all sounds like great fun. Enjoy every minute and I hope you do find Santa.

Blanket is on its way to Katie! DC 0312 2120 0002 1597 6960. ETA 12/14/2012. Sorry didn’t get photos!

Susan:heart: :knitting:

The blanket arrived on Saturday – Thanks for the cute socks!

Here’s how it looked this morning:

I need to go to the store and get some white/off white yarn for my second color. I don’t know if I’ll have a chance to start this week (some activity going on every day/night since last Wednesday and we are hosting a Christmas party on Saturday) so I probably won’t start it until next week, when I’m off work.

In the meantime, KristinMei and salmonmac each offered to knit another blanket (and I’m always up for one) so if I could have at least one more knitter for each of our other two blankets, then we could get those started too. :happydance:

Hello everyone! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, however you celebrated it. :grphug:

I’m ready to jump back in on helping with blankets. Just stick me wherever I’m needed. :thumbsup: I have some random acrylic still floating around the house I need to use up.
