I finally got the 2 packages off for my swaps! They have been in the living room for a week now and I just couldn't get to the post office. "Things" just kept happening and I wasn't getting moving this week!
Laurie C should receive her package for the Crochetoholic's January Swap the beginning of the week. Just in time for me to start thinking about the Feb swap! The theme was "White" this month. Think I manged to get the right number of white items plus some other goodies in her package.
The other package went to my partner in the Hot Cocoa swap and since it is a secret swap I can not tell you who it is yet in case she happens to stop by. This one was easy to put together except for the knit/crochet buddy we had to make. After much searching I made some little oreo cookie magnets with google eyes. Can't think of anyone that wouldn't smile for an oreo! Hope she feels the same way! Will post pictures soon.
Also have to post a picture of the felted clog pattern I received from LeslieJ in the Jan swap. They are on my list to try when I catch up with my WIPs. Will find the camera and post tonight!
Ready to get started putting together the packages for my next 2 swaps - the Defeat the Winter Doldrums dishcloth swap and the Knitters Scavenger Hunt.
I ordered some things for the DWDS should receive them in plenty of time. Need to choose a dishcloth pattern to make and get started. I want to try something different this time. Excited about choosing the right pattern for my partner. Have been checking out her blog to get ideas. Very Interesting!
The scavenger hunt will take some serious thinking. It is different. Will have to get my ideas together and get going so I can get it all together in time. Have been visiting her blog also for ideas.
Spent many hours the last 2 days trying to get Red Sox tickets online from the Red Sox site. No luck! Never even got to pick seats. Keep getting a message that there is high volume and can't process at this time. Spent most of my time in a "virtual waiting room" where they pick out people randomly. You think a team with all their money could do a simple thing like sell tickets without a major hassle. I think they ( and other teams and concert promoters) would rather sell on places like stub hub and make more money! We were able to get tickets to some games thru a friend and from a tour bus company so we will see 8 games but none of the tickets were at face value.
Well, better get some knitting done! Will post those pictures soon!
