But first, a big hug to Carrie for giving me one of these earlier this week.

It was so sweet of her! I haven't had much of a chance to really savor this nice award as work has been busy as tapmouse can attest. So the deal on receiving one of these is this: "Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland. Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on. Beware you may get the award several times." So without further ado and in no particular order:

Carrie - right back at ya!
Tapmouse - my knitting buddy - that says it all
Nathania - Co-owner of my favorite lys and beautiful mother of 3 beautiful girls
Elem and Bockstark Knits - both of whom fueled my Wollmeise addiction
ChickenKnits - Carrie tagged her already, but I decided to tag her again since she shares my love for sock clubs, but is much better at joining them than me

I have more, but Blogger is refusing to let me add them in, so I'll stop right here. I did intend to list 10, but Blogger is also scrambling and/or eating my text left and right and it's rather irritating. I'll try to add the remaining 4 in later.

Since I haven't finished my Twist yet (I go button shopping tomorrow and then I have to figure out how I want to space them out) nor finished hint 2 of my SotSii, I'll go with my first Rockin' Sock package for 2008. I got my package last Saturday but haven't gotten around to blogging 'til now. The colorway is Dragon Dance & the pattern is Serendipity by Adrienne Fong, one of my favorite sock designers.

And the obligatory shot of the skein opened up. I got Falkor, the luckdragon from The Neverending Story, on my ballband.

I'm looking forward to getting to this pattern just as soon as I finish at least one of my Salish Sea socks.

Thanks dear!! You do make my day!

Good luck with the button shopping...just think, once you pick the buttons then you can finish the sweater!!!

That's a lovely RSC parcel. :)

Thanks for the shout out! You make my day too!

Hopefully this year I'll actually make progress on some of these sock club yarns. I've been very bad at that.

Zonda said...

Gorgeous yarn! Darn..I didn't renew either! Wishing you good button luck!

tapmouse said...

Thanks-you know you always make my day! Who else can appreciate yarny goodness in the same way and be available to share it with in person so frequently?

You are definitely on my list, too, if I weren't so button-shy right now and dreading putting the graphics up!

And yes, I certainly know how busy you've been! And getting lots of knittng and unknitting done!
