Have a wonderful evening, I will ~ a good book, coffee and knitting.
Ugh ~ I'm tired and this just makes me mad and more tired. I love swaps, absolutely but I may have to reconsider whether I do anymore after the SI2Me2 swap. Its a lot of work, effort and time spent finding the right stuff, wrapping it and then sending it off ~ for it not to arrive. On top of that ~ the recipient feels left out of the fun. I've resent 2 of these packages and since I just found out about the other 2 ~ I'll have to figure out what to do about them especially since they were Sk8Chick's for her 2 swaps. It will workout, I'm sure and I will no longer do swaps during the holidays just to keep it simple.
Stepping down off my soapbox....;P
I'm off to do some knitting ~ my CPH is coming along nicely and dh's 2nd sock almost done. More on my other WIPs later ~ dh has returned w/my books from the library. ;D 2 are knitting books and the others are mysteries. Good nite!

(the awesome photographer is her dh)
I also picked up "Enchanted Garden" which is filled w/lovely garments for children. She had all the samples and I can't wait to get started. I've my eye on "Pickles", "Jam Sandwich," and "Duchess." They are all very beautiful and I plan to fill my dds hope chest w/these and the Da Boy ~ well, it will be a baby chest. heehee Yes, I knew I'm planning early for the younger two and I know some of you think the styles may be outdated, I don't think so. They are lovely and almost classic styles. I plan to make Pickles for my little studmuffin (adopted godson/nephew ~ don't ask) and can't wait to see him in it. So I'll be getting some yarn soon.
Well, better go ~ more tomorrow! nite-nite ;D
