Surprises

Look what arrived in the mail this weekend...
My first clue to secret pal!

hmmm Idaho.... very interesting.... First thing in common... a similar state bird - the bluebird! :)
Hello my wonderful SP!! I look forward to hearing from you again!

Yes, I have picked my Trekking colorway for the Trekking along! Here she is...

Isn't she lovely? It is number 68. Not sure of a pattern yet... but soon! I have several in mind, but have not come to a decision as of yet.

Several posts ago I was a little down on myself for having too busy of a May social calender and not enough time for knitting or reading. Well, a week later I realize that I am doing just fine! I have actually completed more projects than I thought including 2 charity projects (a wool vest for CIC and a ripple blanket for the local charity) plus my knitted pink tank and I am well on my way to finishing these lovely Opal Masterpiece socks:

Plus I have finished three books and statred a new one this morning. Why was I making myself so crazy?!?! WHo knows, but things have a way of settling themselves don't they?

On the agenda for today is a little gardening... working on my hummingbird garden with some new red flowers purchased yesterday... maybe a little reading and of course a little sock knitting! Hope you enjoy your day in the sun as much as I plan to!

Glad you got the postcard!

So what three books did you finish? I love to read, too, and I'm always on the hunt for the next book to put on hold at the library...

Today I'm wearing socks made from that very same colorway of Masterpiece.

Yours are very pretty. I think Masterpiece is a greatly underappreciated collection. It knits up much more attractively than it looks like it will.

The Trekking yarn you bought is such a gorgeous colorway, I'm looking forward to seeing the pattern you'll decide for!
And I adore the socks you're doing with the Opal yarn, they're gorgeous - I'm a big fan of Opal-yarn, it's pretty expensive (at least over here), but the results are certainly worth every cent, aren't they?

I chose color 03 for my trekking project - it's really beautiful (aren't they all?). The Lorna's Laces you asked about is Shepherd Sock #901: Baltic Sea.
