I actually ordered yarn over the internet

Yeah I know this is no big deal to most people....but I have tried VERY hard to stay away from internet ordering. I also try to have my yarn useage derived from recycling old sweaters (tis the overly strong thrifty gene I have). I have been lured, tempted and I succumbed - KnitPicks has a sock yarn collection with colors I could not resist
KnitPicks - Sock Cocktail

So now I have them in my hot little hands - two skeins of each....bahhhhhhh

now I must add that the Jester Multi has A LOT OF YELLOW-GREEN that I did not expect....not sure if I like it. We shall see if and when I get it knit up.

And just to Shock Myself - another post!

Twice in one month!!! and I should be amazed to see twice in one year! So maybe I should show off more knitting completed projects.

Soooooo here is a pair of socks that I made (and PLEASE ignore my pasty white legs). P7120025 These were made for my Misery-Knits swap partner FBG, sent to England and I hope she is enjoying them.

Well I am sure no-one ever looks at this Blog

Well I am sure no-one ever looks at this Blog - in fact it is probably pretty obvious that even I don't ever look here. So I was thinking of just deleting the entire thing. I took a quick stroll thru what I had posted, and found that it is a great record of past I will keep the blog for a bit longer.

Now the question is?????? will I ever post to it?????hmmmm. and does anyone really belive that I knit? Hmmm maybe a picture or two of some completed projects might be helpful

This is my completed GoddessKnits Mystery Shawl(finished Oct 2008). Knit from recycled cashmere yarn (from a mens vest).
and a bit of the detail. I really enjoyed this KAL!!

and WOWI can't belive it has been well over a year since I last posted...bad Maddog!
