Here is my latest pair of socks. They are Broadripples from I used Claudia's Handpainted in Freesia. Started on 9 Sep and finished on 14 Sep in the car on the way to Ohio. This pattern fly's off the needles. I finished sock #1 in a day, which is fast for me. As for current issues: I've finished one Monkey sock for the swap which has to be mailed by the end of Oct and have been gathering Monkey stuff to send along. I'm almost ready to send my Sock It To Me pals package which has to be mailed by the end of Sep. I'm almost done with my cross stitch pic for a baby shower that has to be framed & mailed by the end of Sep. I joined the ISE5. And last but not least, I'm waiting patiently for my Sock Pixie order so I can start my Oct socks (Halloween socks).

Wednesday ramblings

Hi All! I've been a busy little girl this past weekend! I finished my nephews cross stitch picture and bought the mat and frame for it, started and have gotten pretty far along on another cross stitch for a gift for a baby shower next month and I am almost finished with one Monkey sock...whew! And I finished Diane Mott Davidson's new book and started a book that I checked out from the Library which I am almost finished with too. I will post some pics tomorrow... hopefully. Bye for now!
