FO’s, tea , swaps and gifts!

finished veras

Finished! My first ever pair of socks. Knitted with Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Vera on 2.5mm circ’s. Very happy. Cast on last night for a Nancy Bush rib and cable number in a recent Interweave Knits. Lorna’s again, but this time Bittersweet colourway. Obsessed with sock knitting at the moment. All other UFO’s are being ignored.

swap with Lisa

Lisa and I swapped goodies. She received kitty doggy and I received one of her very cool pieces of art. Love it. Pencil on trace with stitched detail. Now just need to find a place to hang her (she’s a her, don’t know why she just is). Love the robot postcard too Lisa!

biccies from Kath pressie from Kath

Kath’s not just a linkin’ machine she’s a baking one too! She shipped out her contribution to Al’s afternoon tea swap. She’s first cab off the rank. I’ve been considering what to make and I think I’ve got it worked out. Sorry for the out of focus pic, there wasn’t a lot of light left last night when I got home and there was no way there would be any left to photograph after dinner! Great biscuits Kath. My favourite was the macadamia and white choc. Love the red tea towel too! Kath had also very kindly sent me a pressie. A bag made from the pattern I was recently considering, a lavender eye pillow and some moccassin tops! I reckon they could be converted to ear muffs. 🙂

Nikkishell and I also did a swap recently (I’m a swappin’ whore). I sent her a customised tape measure and she sent me one of her needle wraps. Beautifully sewn and in Amy Butler fabric. I’ve been slack Nikki and not taken any pictures. If you’re wanting a needle roll or bag check out her store.

Back-tack….hmmm like to see progress would you. Well…..ummm. I’m about 50% there, it’s coming together. I want to post this out at the end of the week so it arrives on time. So better get crackin.
