It's Here! My Sock It To Me Package!

Drum roll please.....

My amazing package from my Sock It To Me Swap partner Amy. Let me start by saying what a wonderful buddy Amy has been. You can see from previous posts that she has gone out of her way to spoil me already and now this package arrives! One pair of Marigold Socks in Fleece Artist's Sea Wool in the Amethyst colorway. They fit great and are so soft. The pattern is amazing and the color perfect. Well done! And, a yummy apple cider candle (just in time for fall), a super cute drawsting project bag (perfect for sock knitting), a book mark (gotta have um' - I can barely remember what I read let alone where I left off), and some fab Alchemy Synchronicity yarn in Teal Tide! So pretty and soft. I am going to knit the Foliage hat from the new Knitty for a Lost KAL on Ravelry so I think I'm going to use this yarn. Reminds me of the color of the ocean in Hawaii. And, last but not least, did you see the card? I love this cat. The quote by Nan Porter reads "If cats could talk, they wouldn't" Nuff Said! Thanks Amy! You are awesome!

Here are my Halloween socks:

I couldn't resist. This is the Count Sockula colorway from Lovesticks. I promise to finish my swap socks before I finish the second sock.

Once I have my swap socks done I'm going to work more on this:

These are Dani of Sunshine Yarn's HP Dragon colorways. I'm going to make a mitered square triangle shawl using all four colorways: Hungarian Horntail Dragon, Chinese Fireball Dragon, Welsh Green Dragon and Swedish Short Snout Dragon. I hope I can make it work.

Lastly, one little FO. A hat for my cousin's baby due next month. I just need to make the booties now and then the set will be complete!
