Yankee Swap Results

I'm now convinced that Lauren knows everything. Honest. If I have a question about anything yarn- or tech-related, she knows the answer. And those are usually the only two areas I have questions about, so that pretty much covers my world.

Speaking of yarn, which I usually am, the Sweet Life Yankee Swap was last night. There was some *great* stuff... I'd've been happy with either of the things I got (my first got stolen). What I got was:

A gift bag, with THREE presents inside!

Vogue 2006 Holiday Issue...
which I *almost* bought, but didn't! Yay!

Pattern: Trellis, April 2007 "Pick Up Sticks" Sock-of-the-Month Club

Yarn: Zen Yarn Garden "Spring Garden"

Oooooooo, pretty!!

I would like to note that I haven't started these socks yet, despite AMAZING temptation!!

And now, something seasonal. If you wish, copy & play in you own blog! I've set it up as a table, so you should just be able to copy the questions only.

  1. That yarn is so yummy. You make me wish I knew how to knit.
