Yesterday I received a beautiful care package from my new friend Stephanie (mortaine on Ravelry). She sent me a homemade drop spindle and some beautiful fiber to play with. She is a sweetheart, and it made me smile all day long. Ahhh, now to just figure it all out and get started...woo hoo!

I've been in a sock place as of recent days. I've been plugging along on two pair that I started a few weeks ago, but I got some new yarn the other day and just HAD to cast on another pair. I decided to start a pair from the book "Socks From The Toe Up" by Wendy Johnson. I am making the "Lacy Ribs Socks" and I am zooming right along. This pattern is so much fun and super easy. Not to mention very pretty. I'm doing both at the same time with magic loop and I'm already in the home stretch working on the leg. I prefer my socks to be a little above ankle length so only a couple of inches to go. Then I'll go back to my two cardigans, my Cheshire Cat Stole and my two other pairs of many project's...too little time.

I also am dying to cast on for my "Dorothy" socks from the Wizard Of Oz sock club from Woolgirl. Jen puts together the most amazing clubs. That will be my next cast on...oooh maybe evening tonight. Scott laughs at me and wonders how I keep all the projects and patterns straight in my head. My Corrina girl knew me well. She always said "If my Mom puts her mind to it she can accomplish anything". She was my biggest fan, and I, hers! I love you CocoBean!!!

That's it for this update.
