The Olympics and Sox!

So I am not a gold medalist - also I am not disappointed by this because my knitting skills have improved - and I know that it not if you win or lose it is how you play the game! I now can knit lace patterns in between calls at work - this is a great accomplishment in my world! I overcame stumbling block I had and I am a better knitter for it - pictures of the finished scarf will be posted soon as well as the cast on for my Sockapalooza Socks!

Look at all the goodies my SP sent me :) A sweet rose card, DARK Chocolate, a beautiful crystal pretty, a notebook, stitch holders, and some beautiful merino wool yarn that was dyed just for me! Thank you SP!

Knitting Olympics

Well I have swatched! That is the beginning of the Lace Sampler from Knitting for Dummies in the mint green Annabel Fox Oasis Cotton Yarn I was going to swap - Guess what! Now that yarn is going to become Branching Out! Hee! It is a nice yarn - pretty and soft - I am going to use a little bigger needle and just go for it! :) Wish me luck!
