How time has flown and I hadn't blogged. Work has been hell, we have had a full house going nonstop for 2 weeks and people not showing up for work. I have been cleaning rooms like a crazy woman. So to say the least I've been tired but it a good tired, one that you know that you did a good days work.
My knitting, I don't have much to show for it. My Nevermore Socks I dropped a stitch and didn't notice it till to late, so I frogged that pair and will start all over. Right now I'm test knitting yarn for Woolgirl, which is always fun. I've got one sock almost done and will send it all very shortly.
To the winners of the contest I will put your packages out in the mail today or tomorrow please forgive me but I had to add something extra and it required my time. I hope you will enjoy it and the yarn. It's one of my favorite things.
The boys are both going to be moving out soon, so I will be getting empty nest syndrome. As much as I want them to go I don't because I know that I will worry. And I don't want to call them every day like a pain in the ass mom. Are they eating, are they safe, will they get their bills paid on time. Just your basic mom here. But the fun part begins to redo their room into my craft room. I'm even going to put my computer in there.
Well I really need to get some laundry done or something around the house and then to my knitting. My 52 pair plunge is really in need of some socks I've gotten 9 pair done and a long ways to go, So keep those sticks aclick.
Happily knitting socks, Bye

KateO 292 and Tom with 292 you each will get a skein of yarn I want to give away more of my favorite dyers Yarn Pirate and Zen Yarn Garden. KateO you will get Yarn Pirate and Tom Zen Yarn Garden. Please email me with you addresses and I will ship them out to you.
here it is 305 I think I got it all. You never know I have it stashed all over so that way certain people don't know how much. My favorite dyers are and most of you got them right are: Hazel Knits, STR and SockPixie which no one guessed, if you have never knit with her yarns please check her out. She is an amazing dyer her colors are beautiful and the yarn flows through your fingers when you are knitting. She post new yarns every Sunday and they are gone by Tuesday
The winners are: ikkinlala with a guess of 301 and STR, Awesome mom with a guess of 300 and no dyer and Jersey with 293 and Hazel Knits.
You each will receive the following ikkinlala STR, Awesome mom SockPixie and Jersey Hazel Knits. Please email me with you mailing address and I will ship your prize to you.
And thank you one and all for the great guess'.
Kitten with a whiplash: Don't feel bad the yarn was piled good and I did only find 10 more skeins that where in a different place. I hope that's all I have hidden

Thank you for all the guess on my contest But here's a clue, guess high. No one has guess over the amount and the closes person doesn't even knit. I want to give away yarn and will give away to the three closes people without going over the amount. My cousin will still get a pair of socks no matter what. So keep guessing and next week I will give 3 lucky people yarn from my favorite dyers and probably my favorite skeins. (Maybe not my favorite but one of my favorite colors.)

Part 1: How much sock yarn do I have? Can you tell my favorite dyer?
I finally finished my Slippery Slope Socks I think they took forever but I did do several pairs in between them. I'm not really happy about how they turned out, each sock is different. The only thing I can think that I did differently is my tension was different.
I have started knitting in the Super Sock Scarefest. We will get a new pattern every 10 days. So I have to knit a little bit longer and harder every day. This competition is based on points not how fast you have to be creative take good pictures. I just want to knit the socks. I am behind in my 52 pair plunge so I hope this will catch me up.
Will I better get knitting so keep those sticks aclickn'.
Happily knitting socks, Bye.
