Busy life makes a lousy blogger, so here it is, almost a week of posts in one shot, completely random.

I have become addicted to Swap-Bot, like I needed it. But the concept of one time swap, instead of keeping the commitment for months, fits my life better right now. The last package I received was from Sherrin for the Snobby Single Skein Swap:
Two skein of Patons Classic Merino, two fingerless gloves patterns (so I can choose), cable needle, DPNs, stitch markers, tapestry needles, she did not forget anything!
Thank you, Sharrin!

Guess who came by the FTA booth to say hi at Stitches? My Sock-ret Pal spoilee, Louise:
She came all the way up from Minnesota, wearing the socks I sent her.

The pattern for those socks will up on One Planet Fiber soon. As soon as I knit another pair with this:
Lanas Puras Melosa Fingering Weight in Fantasy - soft as butter, can't wait to swatch!

New Magknits is up, with Principessa modelling the Very Berry T-shirt:
I took that photo almost a year ago, and she has grown so much. Remember this? Let's not go there, please.
Magknits states that the t-shirt is shown in Lana Grossa Point Print. The one Principessa wears is in Lana Grossa Point Print, but the one at the bottom of the page is in SWTC Amaizing.

My Project Spectrum projects for February/March:
Trekking XXL socks, Sugar Maple Shawl in my hand-dyed cashmere, and Infant's Fancy Silk Sock (pattern by Nancy Bush from Knitting Vintage Socks) in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Icehouse.
Coming soon, It's Not a Gift, Knit from Your Stash, and UFO Resurrection 2007 updates.
