to write anything and so there are lots of pictures to show. Back at the end of March I placed an order for The Loopy Ewe. These are some of the things that came. In order from the top are Enchanted Knoll Farm Esmaralda, Monkeypal Hand-Dyed Yarns Cuppa Joe, and Dye Dreams Comfy Sox Charcoal. I also orderded Loopy Ewe Sticky Notes and a Stitch Saver which is just a short crochet hook to pull any dropped stitches back up to where they belong.
As an added bonus, because with your sixth order you become a Loopy Groupie and get a nice surprise. It is a Loopy bag filled with a lovely sock pattern, a skein of sock yarn(ATH Yarns California Sunset), a calendar and a little baggie with some chocolate kisses. They are really quick to fill and ship out your order and nices surprises to boot!
And if you didn't notice the doggie butt in the picture above, here is the complete picture. His favorite spot is curled up on my loveseat. Luckily it's leather and easy to clean.
I finished up the Holidazed Socks from the November 2008 installment of the Socks That Rock sock club.
Also finished up the April KAL for MonthlyDishcloths yahoo group--Illusion Egg Hunt.
Here is Ranger looking intently at something over the baby gate.
Sarah needed some low strength reading glasses.
I also placed and order from KnitPicks--I have been trying the magic loop method of knitting socks and really liked it so ordered plenty of longer small needles. I always have two or three socks on the needles.

I also ordered a Nantucket bag. It's really made for a tool bag, but it has lots of pockets for knitting stuff and as you can see I have already filled it up.We needed a new vacuum so I bought this Dyson. It was on sale and I got an extra discount as well so I got a good deal. And it works great.
These are the Show-Off Stranded socks that I have finished up recently. Went pretty quickly and I love how they look.
Another dishcloth for MonthlyDishcloths -- the mid-April KAL -- April showers
This is where I am with the latest socks that I am working on -- Cloning Anemone Rib socks from the 2008 Socks That Rock sock club, September installment. These are the last ones from 2008 and then I can work on the latest ones from this year.
I think I am caught up for now. Hopefully I won't be as long till the next post.
