My Sock Pal socks are finished! (Lucky number 7 for 2006!) Nothing stinks about that. I chose this colorway (even though my Pal stated that her favorite color was maroon/burgundy) in the hope that she'll consider them the "spring" version of her favorite color. My daughter thinks they are "the bomb".
Spring is beginning to show a few hints around here. This (by the toe of the sock) is as tall as my hyacinths are today. My Grandfather would call them "stink bombs". Today they are one of my favorite flowers, though I think it 's mainly because they remind me of himm and not becauae I am any more thrilled with their scent than he was! (Notice, that's why they are outside of my house and not on my kitchen table.)
Only six days to go before we leave for our trip. Today I am putting together some posts for while we are gone. I thought that while I'm gone that some of my
earlier than 2006 projects could make an appearance plus information and links to places that we'll be staying or visiting.
In Secret Pal 8 news: Secret Pal 7 had 535 participants. As of yesterday
after only three days of registrations there were over 250 people already registered for #8. Registrations will continue through the month of April. Sockapal000za has over 600 participants. I'm sure that the registrations will slow down a bit ,but I think the hostesses may shudder if we end up with the kind of numbers 4000+ that Harlot got with the Knitting Olympics! I am looking forward to hostessing and checking out a number of blogs that I probably haven't even discovered yet.
