The sky looked like this:

Isn't that just a great view to have from your desk?

I also sent out my Knit Mitt Kit Swap package.
Here is what was in it:
Stitch Markers, made by yours truly.

The Mitten Pattern “Fiber Fish”.

The project bag. I's a mitten swap, but I couldn’t imagine her using a bag with mittens on it in the summer, and she’s much more likely to be knitting socks than mittens, anyhow.

Merino goodness hidden inside. That’s KnitPicks Memories in the “Fly Fishing” colorway. Appropriate, non?

I also included some home made candies, some Ghirardelli candies, a Dragonfly refrigerator magnet, a copy of Knitters magazine, a cube of rainbow post it notes and a short note. I really hope she enjoys it!!!

In other news, I frogged the Gorilla socks back to the toe increases. The ribbing was irritating and ugly. I've narrowed them by 8 stitches from 64 to 56. Let's all hope that they will fit now. I ripped out about 3 inches of sock, which was really depressing.

I also finished an infant sock, which is blocking, and the freaking colors bled when I soaked it for blocking. I am so NOT impressed.

Until next time, may your BOs be swift, and your FOs be many!

Okay...I love the fish mitten pattern, but probably wouldn't wear 'em. LOL too cute, though.

Oh. Sorry about the gorilla sox...but honestly, you'll be so happy with them when they're done and fit great. Just keep plugging away at 'em.

NO. The baby sock did not bleed. Tell me that it isn't so. It can't be possible. Is there any saving it??

You've had a rough day or so, haven't you? It's bad enough to have to frog...then the death of a baby sock, too!?!

Easier to frog 3 inches than 8. Even easier than that to hide them away in denial and knit something else. Ask me how I know. ;)

The fish mitten pattern is so cool - please tell where you found it!
