Staying on the Porch

There is a saying "if you can't run with the big dogs, stay on the porch." I did just that. Leslie, a talented knitter in Girls with Purls designed and knit a fabulous Christmas Sweater for the state fair which opens later this week. She encouraged others of us to step up but I am not brave enough for that strenuous a competition. Instead I entered my teeny tiny local county fair and won a blue ribbon for Skuld. I could share that there was minimal competition but that would spoil the fun! Leslie, you are my knitting hero...Good Luck running with the big dogs!

Swaps are terrific!

My swap partner received her package and e-mailed me to let me know she loved it. What fun, I have already signed up for a Christmas themed swap and am looking forward to shopping for her (not likely to be him but possible).

Joined the ASSS Swap on Ravelry, no we are not exchanging derrieres it is the Autumn Sock or Scarf Swap. My first one ever and I have had a blast buying things for my partner's box. See the box , it is ready to be mailed Monday. Can't reveal the contents until she receives it. I am hoping she enjoys it as much as I have!
