I got a really great raise in March, which allowed for extended stay in California. Forever? I'm not sure. I really fell in love with the Springs when I was there and can't wait to go back in September.

For now, I'm involved in two swaps-- a Lion Brand swap and a Vanna's Choice Afghan Swap called Rainbow Connection. For the first one, my partner is from the Bronx and I will send her one item knit with a Lion Brand yarn (already complete!) and then some goodies in the same color. I will post some more details once I've sent it to her, so I know I won't spoil the surprise.
The second one is a little more complicated but super cool. This is how it works:
You join a swap that is open and interesting to you. They have different themes like George Clooney (manly colors) or Carribean (tropical colors).
Idealy it is you and twelve other people. You each make 12 squares in the colors designated and send one to each person. Then, at the end, you have twelve and sew them all together and have a blanket-- tada!
Before all this swapping madness, I had kind of fallen behind in my knitting. Here are the last few things I made:
|A handbag with a badly sewn zipper|
|A cotton teddy bear with a big heart|
|A hat, also with a big heart.|
