First off, I'm set with my pal for the the 3rd Knitters Tea Swap. Woot! This isn't a secret swap so we get the opportunity to chat and get to know each other BEFORE we send out our package. I think that is a pretty cool concept. I've already introduced myself and have scoured her blog for ideas. I've been a wee bit distracted with the Yarn Harlot's appearance here in TO, the TTC Knit-A-Long, getting the incoming DKC's VP Programme up to speed (or at least making sure all the materials are gathered that she needs), weeding the yard and dealing with the kitchen renovation (that my Sweetie Pie has been doing an awesome job on) that I feel I haven't been in touch as much as I'd like. Plus my series of tubes were down for a whole day late last week and that didn't help anything. However, fear not KTS pal! I'm getting a little questionnaire together and will send it over to you shortly.
If you wanna give a wave to my pal, go visit her at her blog at kaleidoscoptic. She just got back from vacation and has posted some lovely photos. I'm sure she'd love to be distracted just a bit more!
Secondly, I've successfully taught myself Magic Loop and I'm a convert! No more DPNs for me. I still have the other sock to do but the first look me a little more than a week. Much better than my last pair of socks that took several months to complete because of all the hand fatigue. Details on pattern, yarn, etc when I finish the other one. In the meantime, jam to this mix of Ted Steven's talk about the internet:
