Sockapalooza Ready to Go!

Picture heavy post - may be slow to load.

Here' my Sockapalooza stuff getting ready to be mailed. I was walking by one of the local dollar stores today and saw that neat little lighthouse box in the window. They had four or five different sizes. I got the biggest one which was perfect for the socks, little floating flower candles (that match the socks quite nicely!) and postcard. The lighthouse on the front of this postcard with the cannons and stone structure in front of it is in my town. It's a museum now. It's not the clearest to see in the pic, it's over to the right. (I may pop in and pick some more of these boxes up - they're great when I do Sockapalooza again or do a Secret Pal exchange.)

I also snapped a picture of the baby set I was asked to make. It's shown here sans ribbon in the booties and bonnet. I didn't have enough, and the lady picked it up from the store after I went to the local sewing shop and got some ribbon. Thus, no pic. The color isn't very good. I tried to tweak it some, but I really need Photoshop back on this machine. The camera software sucks for retouching. I used Bernat Softee Baby in pink.

Had some friends stop by last week one morning. I threw some leftover hamburger buns out for them. He didn't eat, but she did!

The boys got some new Lego yesterday, too. We are using Alison's point system to save up for more. (See her April 21, 2006 post.) Pumba was the supervisor of the building crew. There was a Diego set not pictured in addition to the two Dino sets and the car carrier/race car set. (Logan loves Diego!)

I guess there may not be any eagle babies after all. One of the eggs is gone - they don't know what happened to it. No signs of it anywhere, no signs of egg debris. They feel now the other one either contains a dead eaglet or was never fertile from the beginning. You can read about it here. Very disappointing.

Happy knitting!

Your socks look great and the baby set is lovely.
I must say after 2 days with Shan and her two little ones, I don't know how you do it!! Your boys are older, but they are still close in age and that is such a handful.
It is bath time now, so I am off.

If you drive into Shelburne at 9am you need to be careful at the Cape Cod Colony Motel - there is a threesome of ducks that cross the road every morning going to the motel. Wonder what they are up to in their room :) I've been told they go back across the road around 10:30.

You socks and gift box look great!

Your socks look great, and I love that lighthouse box!

I've been watching the eagles too, and have heard something was wrong with one of the eggs, but the second was only due to hatch in the next few days...but that was a few days ago. Weird about how one disappeared. Too bad about both eggs. It would have been nice to see the babies.
