A little housekeeping

I have so many things to post about, I don't even know where to start. I keep meaning to write about all this stuff, but I get sidetracked. So here we go.

First off...the box from the

arrived at my house last week. What a bunch of goodies. It took me a few days, but I finally decided on

in exchange for these:

More sock yarn...just what I need. I've been wanting to learn to dye, so this KnitPicks color your own comes at a very appropriate time. Perhaps this weekend...? (Hey Kim--busy? What to do some dyeing?) I mailed the box off to the next person this afternoon. Enjoy.

What else? Birch is progressing along, though slowly. I've done one more repeat. Pretty whole repeat in a week. And in terms of my diet, I really sucked today. Krispy Kremes at the office with no breakfast before is a BAD combination. Damn those glazed gobs of sugar.

I've joined the Mason Dixon Knitalong as well. I made this over the weekend.

What a fun pattern, and quick to make. I'm going to try and make a few more over the coming weeks. I think they'll make good additions to bridal shower/wedding gifts, and good lord, I have several of those this summer.

And I joined this as well:

My first book is The Red Tent. I bought this book 2 years ago when we were on our honeymoon in Victoria and read the first couple of chapters and then set it aside. It's high time I actually picked it up and finished it.

I think that's least for now. Yikes.

Yay, Jocele! Looks like a fun trade. Thanks for participating! (We're back from our trip so I finally got to see what's up). See you.

OOo, just read the rest. LOVED the Red Tent. A must read for mothers of girls.

I, too, loved The Red Tent. It's the sort of book when you finish it that you want to buy a copy of for all the important women in your life.

All right, so I'm a little slow keeping up with the stash... but you took two things I put in! Cool! You would probably like to know what that yarn on the lower right is... unfortunately I cannot tell you. I bought it at Rhinebeck a couple of years ago, being unable to resist the colors, and then could never figure out what to do with it. I think it's a wool/silk blend, but I'm basing that as much on feel as on anything else. I hope you have fun with it.
