Some goodies and almost a sock

I went to get the mail yesterday and found a package on my doorstep. Oh, I knew it was coming, but I forgot. I sent one of the gals on the Knittyboard something and as a thank you, she sent me this:



Left to right: A bit of Axelle De Sauveterre cashmere to uhm, fondle; Apple Laine fingering weight yarn in Arizona, 2 skeins of Cherry Tree Hill Glitter Alpaca in Foxy Lady, and a skein of CTH Suri Lace in Spanish moss. You want close ups, don't you?
(This is truer to the real color....)




I'm beginning to think that I either knit really fast, or that I really do neglect other things in my life/have too much time on my hands. The over the knee sock? You remember where that was last post only a few days ago? This is where it's at now:


How long is that, you ask?


I love knitting this sock. I'm almost hoping that it doesn't fit my friend so I can have them. :)

And because so many of you were intrigued on bachelorette party cupcakes...they're here because they not be appropriate for those of you viewing this at work. I also made these, especially for hubby, as I didn't think he'd eat the other ones.

She sent me something better than a Lexus! :-)

Karen, I didn't know Apple Laine's website was running again. It had been down for quite a while. The gal who runs it is so nice and has really beautiful colors.

Love the cupcakes. I can see why your hubby wouldn't want to eat the first ones!
