Memorial Day Socks & Diagonal Scarf

Here is my Diagonal Scarf that I started last week. I'm using SWTC Karaoke. The color is called "Epihany". I wanted something to do when I was catching some rays that I didn't have to look at a pattern for.
Here are my May socks. For Memorial Day. I used Lion Brand Magic Stripes from my stash, #2 dpn's and a standard sock pattern. Started on May 3 and finished on May 16.

Meagan's Skull Scarf

Here is the finished skull scarf that I made for Meagan's birthday. I gave it to her on Sunday. I hope she likes it. I reversed the colors on either side. It turned out pretty cool.

Goodies from Swap Pals

I received my ISE6 package from the wonderful Ann in Bekeley CA! The scarf is wonderful and I love the colors!
I also got lots of goodies: chocolates, gummy bears, Misti Alpaca lace yarn in a beautiful green color, flower stitch markers, a Good Karma pocket stone, some seeds to grow Poppy flowers & ladybug magnets. Thanks Ann for being such a great pal!
And I received my Monkey Swap Four package from Chelle in Canada. Look at these beautiful socks...and they fit perfectly.

She also sent along 2 little bags with monkey's on them. These are great for my small knitting projects. I'm using one right now, some monkey stitch markers, some chocolates, some really cool sock yarn. The colorway is called "Monkey See, Monkey Do", a Cookie A pattern, a pattern for mini socks and a mini sock on a sock blocker key chain. Thanks Chelle, you're a great pal!

Here I Go Again...

I can't believe that's it been almost a month since my last post...I have been quite busy...extra-curricular activities...enough said. But anyway, I have been knitting...some. I finished Meagan's Skull Scarf in time for her birthday coming up. I knitted my friend Jeanne 2 Chemo caps using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, one dusty pink and one teal. However, I neglected to take a picture of them before I gave them to her. I'm trying to decide what to knit on next. I may start on my Skull scarf. Pink and black, of course. Or the Medallion purse from and black. Do you see a color trend here? Or I may start the Karaoke cable scarf. Decisions, decisions. I've been having a grand ole' time with my new Ipod Shuffle. I never realized how diverse my music preferences are. I can tell you that I am all over the map. I've taken up walking again so my Ipod keeps me moving when I'm not walking with my walking partner. I'll post some progress pic's of whatever I end up working on...I pinky promise.

Here's the Friday's Feast from last week:

What is the nearest big city to your home? Washington DC
On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how well do you keep secrets? 10
Describe your hair (color, texture, length). Color is brown; texture is fine; Length is shoulder.
Main Course
What kind of driver are you? Courteous? Aggressive? Slow? Curteous most of the time. Fast all of the time. Curse like a drunken sailor most of the time.
When was the last time you had a really bad week? I can't remember the last really bad week. I tend to remember them as days and they all seem to run together. But things have gotten better lately.
