More progress!


Had to stick Mandy in there because she was being cute...


LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE them! So comfortable. You HAVE to get/make some.

I made both the Lucy Bag and the Felted Clogs with the Ella Rae Classic. It's true what they say... it felts REALLY well. I'm very happy with both of them.

Rambling Rows afghan started!

Since taking this picture I've done four more squares. I'm making it with the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran and it is so soft and wonderful to work with.
And look what came this morning...
First of all, I am quite impressed with Louet. Their sock dyeing kits have been backordered for quite some time. Since the next class is coming up and the kits needed to be ordered, I emailed them to ask when they'd be back in stock. The reply was for me to order what I needed, tell them when the class was (March 8) and they would make up the kits to send to me. Well, I ordered them yesterday morning and they arrived here this morning at 9:30! They come from Ogdensburg, NY so shipping is only a day anyway, but I couldn't believe they got them sent out so fast.
So, now the question is, if it came from Ogdensburg, why did US Customs and Border Control get it? Louet is based in Canada but have their warehouse in Ogdensburg. Not sure why it would go through customs. But they opened the box AND one of the kits. A little annoying but it's for our safety so I will deal with it. I can imagine what the kits must look like going through an x-ray machine....little vials of dye, a sqeeze bottle, a little packet of soap - I'm sure it looks suspicious. And yarn, which I'm sure doesn't.
