I wanted to post pics of stuff that I am up to, but I can't find the cable to upload the pics to the computer. Grrrr....
My first package reached my secret pal in Germany. She seems to like everything. I took pictures of all of it but...well... you know. I sent her some chunky alpaca like my one skein pal Mel sent to me. And some vanilla-scented smelly soap and lotion from Bath and Body Works. I wanted to send her some pumpkin and spice body butter, but I didn't know if she would like how it smelled. I don't know if she had ever smelled pumpkin, living in Germany and all. And pumpkin seems to be one of those scents you either love or hate.
I also sent her some Fanny May candy... Meltaways and Pixies. Mmmmmm.... And a cute little card with a kitty on it.
As for my own stuff, I finished a hat and my dad thought it was too small. So, I gave it to my mom and bought some more chunky yarn and made a bigger hat and a matching scarf. I'm going to give it to him tomorrow. I'm still working on a few differet lap blankets, and I have started a sweater for my dinky niece. Greg wants me to make him a hat like the one Jayne gets from his mother in Firefly. It's a knit pattern, but there is a pattern out there to crochet it. Or I might just teach myself to knit once and for all so I can make this hat! Maybe not.
Oh well, I need to make dinner and think about getting to bed early. Maybe I'll work on the sweater a bit more. Later!
