Prizes, RAKs and socks!

The other day I got my prize from Crafty Fox's contest.

I bet that's the best sock yarn anyone's gotten just for liking Marilyn Manson. ;) As you can see there was yummy chocolate as well.

Then yesterday I got this great RAK from YarnKnita!

It was all wrapped in nice tissue and there was a pretty card.

And look at all the goodies inside! A mini manicure kit (I was desperately in need of that), sock yarn, candy, sudoko, sticky notes, a book, hand lotion, and tea!

And finally... Socks! Yes, you heard right, the socks are back.

Here are my most recent socks (#35) made with Limbo that I got from my amazing SP, Skitten!

Yarn: Schoeller + Stahl Limbo
Started: 10/20/06
Finished: 10/26/06

If you look closely at the picture you'll notice that one sock is more stripey while the other is more... blendy. I guess that's just the difference between the two balls, but I actually like it!

The yarn is a sportweight and very nice to work with, and the color kind of reminds me of Trekking.

You get the best mail! And the Sudoku. I've had a hankering for some, but I seem to have misplaced all my books. If you figure out a way to do sudoku and knit at the same time, let me know.

Nice presents! The Outlander book there is a fun read(though be warned, if you get hooked, the titles just keep longer and longer!) The socks are very nice, with great colors!
