Not too much to tell anyone in the way of knitting. I am to the toe on the first sock of my Ma's -- Ma's Day socks. I will finish that one tonight, then I am taking a short break to try and finish the sleeve to the sweater for the store. If I can manage to finish the sleeve, say tomorrow night, then I am off Thursday and can work on sewing it up and doing the neck. I also brought home some of this in Crystallite Cream to make this sweater for the store. This yarn isn't really moving. The most I've sold of it was six skeins of Blue Brilliance to someone who wanted to knit a shawl with it. It should knit up quickly. I am going to make size large, and it only requires seven skeins, and it's on 8mm needles. I'm hoping that this will help get the yarn moving.

Trying to bid on some more sock yarn on eBay. I pretty much always get outbid. I'm trying to get this, and I'll see in a little over two days if I win.

That's pretty much it. Logan is doing fine. The knock on the noodle didn't slow him down at all! Didn't learn a lesson, either. He's pretty much been barred from the kitchen. He was in there today, playing on the computer. Next thing I looked, and he was up on the table again! I got him down from there in a hurry. Thanks, everybody, for your comments!

Still waiting to hear that my Sock Pal got her parcel. She currently lives in the States, I believe, and this was mailed to her parents in Canada. They will hold it til she gets there, which I hope isn't too long! I really want to know if she likes them!

Happy knitting!

UPDATE: My Sock Pal, Lindsay, got her Sockapalooza socks! They fit her perfectly, and she loves them! I'm doing a happy dance!

I hope you win the yarn! It's gorgeous. Doesn't being outbid suck? Good luck!

Good luck with your bid! I am always trying to bid at the last minute, but haven't logged onto ebay in forever-- its too dangerous!

That sweater looks very pretty!

Oooo, that yarn looks fantastic. Maybe you should try one of those bidding program that you can set to place a bid within seconds of the deadline. Do a little search on download.com.
