    I've Got Mail!

    I received another great box of gifts from my upstream pal. My kids are going to think they're in heaven when they try the brownies she sent! They come home tomorrow after a week at Grandma and Grandpa's, so I'll bake these up to welcome them home. See more on my blog.

    By the way, those of you in the Southern states can send some warm weather our way. We're expecting 40-50 below wind chills tonight and tomorrow!

    My Wonderful Pal

    Look what my Wonderful Pal sent me! Lots of yummy chocolate, some even yummier yarn, a pair of Valentine socks, some jellybeans and a knitting journal. Many thanks!

    I blocked the lace for the cuff of my Frilly Lace Socks. I thought you all might be interested in seeing it. Blocking was definitely the right way to go. I'm not sure that it made it much easier to pick up the stitches along the bottom, but it definitely defined the points on the lace and makes it look better.

    After much thinking and looking about what to make my swap partner, I finally decided! During my saturday quiet afternoon, I shall cast on. This is so much fun.

    Advice needed

    Has anyone done the Frilly Lace Sock from Lorna's Laces? Should I block the lace before I graft the ends together and pick up the slipped stitches to work on the main part of the sock? My gut is telling me that blocking would make it easier, but I'm wondering if anyone has words of advice.


    I was lost

    I couldn't find the link here anywhere, no matter how I searched or connected from participants blogs....whew...must have been a blogger burp. I received a lovely package in Novemebr from my pal with glorious items amongst them, red Cascade 220, woohoo...I hear I am getting another package. I have just sent a NEw Year's package to my pal....heehee
    Hope everyone is well.....
