Time away means more knitting to show!

Whew! Well here I am typing from the new laptop and I've got lots to tell you!

First off, I got a package from my amazing Spring Fling pal!

It had lots of yummy goodies, the yummiest being a bag of mini Almond Joy! However, the yarn and fiber was pretty yummy too. Some nearly solid Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Violet, a beautiful hank of Cherry Tree Hill Supersock, and some pretty turquoise fiber. She also knit me a washcloth!

Next up we have a few FOs. I was plugging away in my goal to finish 4 of my WIPs from the beginning of the month. Before the Great Computer Disaster I had finished two, and now I've finished four!

Yes, the long neglected Hippy Crunchy socks are FINALLY finished!

The dishcloth is finished and gifted!

And I also finished these socks out of my handspun as the second pair for my knittyboard sock swap.

Oh, how I love me some Almond Joys! You know, I haven't even started on my latest RS Club shipment. I read the pattern and accompanying feet fact sheets though, lol. One more thing -

TAG! You have been tagged. Head over to my blog at http://www.midgeling.com/blog/ to see the rules. :-)

hahaha, I was gonna ask about the long neglected dishcloth.

Love those red socks! It is my belief that the Red Sox are doing so well because both you and Alexis have been knitting Red Sox. So we have to keep this up till say.... October and they will win the World Series. Ok????

I just started my Hippy Crunchys and it's nice to see a finished pair. Yours look great! I'm really afraid that mine are going to be too small, but yours look like they stretched out nicely.
