I got this from Girl is Crafty But since I do not or should I say I have not made a pair of socks by hand I thought why not machine knit them! So here are the rules
Purchase enough yarn to make a pair of socks.
Find a cool sock pattern.
Knit only 1 of the socks.
Package up the sock, the rest of the yarn, the pattern, and then any other little items that you think your swap pal might like (needles, more yarn, candies, little gifts, etc). Mail it out.
My ideas for a first pattern would be Gina Ahrens. This is if you did not have one of your own. I made one pedicure sock on the machine but I don't have the pattern down pat yet. But I used ginas pattern for it. The possibilites are endless.
We could even do sock wars, well eventually. Lets not put the cart before the horse.

I Got this today from Bagpuss. the pink square of wrapped paper is home made saop. It smells really good. I told her i was not sure when or if I was going to use something so special. But I know how it is to make something and the person doesn't use it so I will probably put it out on special occasions. You know when you break out the good napkins to dry your hands on.
Look at the pink washcloth she put some work into this. I would like to make one of these. My baby will love the Ballband washcloth it is her favorite color.

Point of this blog was for the knitting and beading charms. Igot ballof yarn with needles in them and I love knitting and beading charms and tape measures. I plan on making earring with them. I think it is time that I got me some of those cards to put my stitch markers on. I wonder what type of heavy duty holepuncher Maile has to put a hole in an entire stack of post its.

http://www.winterwonderlandswap.blogspot.com/ Click on the link to see what I did for the winter wonderland swap. oh! I got a good idea for the snow ball fight swap is going to takes some patience but i think I can do it. The washcloths are Machine knit for theose who came for the MK info. Not hard at all. I love them. I love knit weaveing would like to spend more time with the process just to see what I can do.
Hand knitting i have started my big dotty envelope clutch. I like it I am thinking of selling it on ebay. it is not hard at all and i did 8 inches in about two days I have 4 more or less to go. I was going to try and knit weave it but it did not go so well. I thought it was going to be harder than it was. The other day I was watching knittiy gritty and I saw this lady use one skein but she used the string from both ends of the yarn to double strand the yarn. Let me find out that will work for making buttonhole bags and it is on. No longer will I have to buy two skeins of yarn!.
When I am done the clutch I am going to try it out. I can make a brown buttone hole bag and line it with the purple and brown fabric and send to my cousin she wants a knitted purse. I am alos going to do a reverse color of the clutch in a coin purse size.
