Lots of Knitting....

but no pics! I have finished a ton of Christmas gifts ( 1 pair of ankle socks for Mom, 1 pair of gloves, 3 pairs of socks, 2 scarves and I am still knitting the blue lace vest, 3 shawls, 1 baby blanket, 1 baby sweater. I'm probably forgetting things too!

Life for me has been very hectic for me the past 2 weeks, but I'll get through it!

Hopefully blogger will allow me to post pics tomorrow.

I just wanted to send a big Thank You to Claire, my Knitters Review Swap pal. I'll post on what she sent tomorrow as well!

Happy Knitting!

Secret Pal Goodies

Thanks so much secret pal! I love everything!!!

She sent me whole bean coffee (which smells delish!), chocolate (looks super yummy), Bath & Body Works Lavendar Vanilla hand lotion and 2 skeins of chunky yarn. I can't wait to get into the yarn! I've never heard of the maker, but I do know it is hand dyed and pictures don't do anything to represent the colors! They are so vibrant, so purple, so me!

Thanks again secret pal! You really made my day!!!!!

Saturday Shopping

After running aroung all morning doing errands, I decided to start my Christmas shopping. I know what I want to get everyone and *almost* everything I can get from the store where I am working (seasonal).

So, where did I go first, Marshall's. I don't work at Marshall's, but I went there anyway. I found some cute things for some swap pals and such, but alas, I did not pic up *one* thing from my Christmas list.

What I did pic up, however, was this.

And the price was a whopping $7.00. Yes, I know. Seven Bucks. I've been wanting to get books 1,2,and3 for the longest, but didn't want to spend $29.95 on them. I thought this was going to be the best deal all day.

Then, I went to Borders. I had a gift card and figured, hey, maybe I'll find something there off my Christmas list. I found this buried in the knitting section. The Borders that I go to never has the books I want. I usually find them at AC Moore or Micheal's. I have been wanting to knit the mittens and baby cardi from this book for a while, but I couldn't find it anywhere.

I shopped a little more, but left with more swap gifts and nothing off my Christmas list.

After that, I was tired, so I went to the grocery store. I needed lettuce to make my "Olive Garden" salad. Afetr figuring out what I wanted for dessert, I picked up this.

If you like candy canes, you'll love this ice cream. I haven't had it since last December and by the time I went back for more, they were all gone. BTW, the ice cream was 50% off too!

After all my hard work and all the things I purchased today, not *one* iten from my Christmas list came home with me. I guess I'll have to shop another day!

Happy Knitting!!
