I got home today to find my belated birthday package from MJ. Now, let it be known that she did actually send me a package near the time of my birthday but due to address confusion it was returned and she sent it again - this time with a few extra goodies.
Yes, she knit me socks! Waving Lace from Favorite Socks - and they fit great.
The starry thing is an awesome circular needle holder - and on the back a zippered pocket. She pointed it out with a note:
Thank you so much MJ!
In other news, I finally got a picture of the sock I knit a while back.
Pattern: Infant's Fancy Silk Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks
I knit a single sock because it was a store sample, but I've decided to count it in my KVS goal.
In other news, here's a picture of my Secret Solstice package from Cassandra
- she has better pictures of the goodies on her blog including some awesome skull wristwarmers!
And last but not least, a little word about the podcast. Thanks to all of you who have gone and listened to it so far! As of this moment we've had 72 listeners - not bad for the first couple days!
I've heard some positive and some negative things so far - I know the sound quality is a bit echo-y (hopefully the addition of the couch to my living room will help with that!) and that the editing is not perfect. Unfortunately Audacity got mad at me during editing and made a few parts of the original file silent, so the editing was a little more severe than I had hoped. Oh, and next time we will make sure to put Amanda closer to the microphone! Ah well, live and learn right?
Thanks for everyone who has given us kind words and encouragement!
