I'm a Loser, Baby

I got this fantastic package from Sunneshine soooo long ago and posted about it right away... or thought I did, anyway. I'm an asshole and fucked it up somehow and for that I apologize and quickly re-post a big fat thank-you to Sunne. Lady, you made my little man's day with those chocolates, plus I loved checking out the rad R2 yarn and magazine/pattern book. I've picked out a hot little drop stitch sweater to knit up ASAP. And those little skull stitch holders are perfect! Sunne, you're awesome!

What a fabulous swap! Thank you!

I feel like a slug, I had gotten a second awesome swap package from my pal Lindsay and while I posted it on my blog, I didn't post about it here. I am so sorry that I didn't think to link to my post sooner - because Lindsay rocked. She really spoiled me on days I really needed it, whether she knew it or not:) I got two fabulous skeins of yarn in my most recent package (among other goodies), one was dyed personally be Linsday, she does a beautiful job at Storm Moon Knits - the colors are so vibrant.

Then a second skein was from the Neighborhood Fiber Company - much coveted! And I love purple! Isn't is fabulous?!


Please check out more details here. Thank you so much Lindsay - you were an awesome pal who spoiled me silly! I appreciate it so much! Excellent swap! Rock on everyone!

I'm a bad spoilee!

My AWESOME package from Kat came to me on Friday, but getting pictures OFF the camera and ONTO the computer was too daunting a task over the weekend, so I just got it up on my blog today.

Shot of the goodies:

The full details on on the blog.


And then there were five...

It looks like there are still five packages yet to arrive... And its been pretty quiet when I ask how its going - so please let me know with a comment or an e-mail - good packages, good pals, bad packages, bad pals, your box is on its way, anything.....

I am trying to figure out how to incorporate our ravelry page for the next exchange... If anyone has any suggestions - other then recruiting new people (since there are lots of people who joined our page that have never done a PRGE swap)...

Happy Knitting!!

2nd package

My 2nd package arrived and Dawn you really outdid yourself. Details here

Thank you


Spoiled Again...

This is most of the amazing package that I was sent by Cheryl (KnittingKnut). I am late posting - Sorry Cheryl! There are more details on my blog... Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Cheryl!

How is it going with everyone else - are packages arriving and pals still communicating?? It looks like those that have arrived, are wonderful!! Lemme know...

Happy KNitting!

wanted to share

As I loved all the music videos during the contest, I'm sharing one featuring a favorite band of mine...

The guys from Apocalyptica do the most amazing things with cellos, I often wonder how they can be headbanging like this without getting their hair tangled in their instruments.

This video is from when they just started, now they make their own songs, have just 3 cellos, added drums and have lots of songs with guest singers... just have a look around at youtube to find more

From down under (again)

Hi! I posted last week that I got my package from metal and knit. I have finally got some pictures to share. There are 2 skeins of a yummy blue alpaca and 2 skeins of yarn to use for my baby charity. Thanks so much Tianne!! I love it all. Oh and there was some candy too.

It's brain is not.

I got my package...on Monday. I have been totally busy at school that I haven't had any time. My wonderful package from pseudobunny offered me 5 minutes to sit down and enjoy the opening process and savor some goodies - A beautiful skein from Selena, A MAD book, a mini puzzle of a Bull Terrier, some stickers, two skeins of cotton for Mason-Dixon dishcloths and a lovely little note from Rachel herself. I WILL post a more awesome post about it all on my blog soon. The hub and I are heading to PA this weekend, so we'll see how soon I'll get to posting.

Thank you Jules for the awesome box o'goodies!
Osky demolished the pirates and I have no idea where they are. Clinton stashed my yarn in the room where everything is taped off and I Am Not Allowed Into Until The Floor Is Finished.
The chocolate I ate.
The rest is rotten in my brain. I know there was other goodies but I have this awful comparative essay to write and I can't stop thinking how to avoid doing the work.
I did mail off Kathleens box today. However going along with my problematic brain patterns I forgot to include a recipe for you. I was going to email you the pdf but I cannot find your email and for this I Blame Gmail. But I will send that tomorrow. It will most likely get to you faster than your box of goodies. For that I Blame Murphy.
Ugh. Now off to study astronomy so I don't have to write that paper. SO SO BAD!!!


As I had some computer problems and a death in the family lately, I did not find the time yet to post about my first package. Today arrived the second one and I finally found the time to photograph everything and write a blog post.

Thanks, peaknits, you have been an awesome pal.

Jules, I will ship your package tomorrow, I am really sorry that I'm late, but life somehow got in the way for this swap.

Another fab package

Here is my second package from Kelly. It had just arrived today. I have already started to eat the dark chocolates. Sock yarn is always good as well as a Yarn Harlot book (one that I didn't have already) . I have actually never seen this brand of sock yarn. And of course, I can't forget the Harry Potter bookmarks. Thank you very much Kelly!!! On a side note, I will be mailing out the second package to Lindsay tomorrow.
