Of Socks and Swaps

Socks from the Sock Sale at Fred Meyers in Hillsboro

Many socks were bought at the sock sale. The Chief had gotten up very early to hit the sales at Target and Lowes and the people in line were talking about the sock sale. The only ones here that didn’t need any new socks were Nicholas and me. Nicholas and I had great fun at Craft Warehouse and Joanns. There were so many people at Joanns that lil Nicholas had to walk instead of riding in a cart. Then the line to check out went from the front of the store all the way to the back. It was crazy. But the little one was very good and stayed next to me the whole time.

PRGE III – From the land down under came the second package for the Punk Rock Gift Exchange. First there is the really large bag with the flag of Australia on it, some soft sparkle yarn that will be great in a scarf mixed with some other yarn that I have. There is a package of key chains with what looks like miniature copies of Australian money plus a package with 3 flowery candles. And lastly, the small ball with the pirate that glows. Nathan will love that since he has taken a liking to Pirates lately. Thank you Leeanne!!!

Knitters’ Coffee Swap III – This fabulous package arrived from Tammy of Knit one, Insane 2 and came all the way from Canada. Check out all the yarn – 6 balls of Sirdar Luxury Soft Cotton and some of her hand-dyed yarn that is 100% Australian Merino. The yarn is sport weight and is in the “Chaos” colorway. I am sure that I can find something really nice to knit up with this yarn. Plus I get to try some Canadian coffee. Two bags from Cupper’s Coffee & Tea which is Alberta’s very own micro roaster and came with rave reviews from Tammy. Sadly, they only ship to Canada. The Lindor chocolates and the Smarties were quickly eaten, but I am taking my time with the chocolate covered coffee beans.
