clue 4 completed, originally uploaded by Craftydiddl.
This is also the week we start mailing our Sockapalooza socks. Eeeee! i am nervous about sending my package. But i picked up a couple little things for my pal-just general things that i guess i would think anybody would like because aside from what she wrote about her socks i really didn’t find out that much about her. I really hope she likes her socks and that they fit. Eeeeeee! 🙂 🙂 🙂
AND of course i am super excited about finding out who my sock pal has been. My pal has been so nice and left comments on my almost all my entries-it feels good when before i only got comments from my mom or my friend Andrea but i made them look at my blog lol i never made my pal. 🙂 So i am excited.
Since i do have a few days until clue 5 comes out-i am going to work on my Pinwheel Purse and finally try a bracelet from my book that i got a couple weeks ago. i also have to finish winding my second skein of yarn for the Stole.
I have decided to end this post by sending you over to fellow blogger, Joanna. She made some Cat Drawings that i just love and want you all to see too. The colors in them are great and she had some fun with the word Cat- So go check them out- Friendsheep!
Enjoy and i hope you are all having a good week so far and keeping cool-it looks like it is Hot all over the States-i know it is here-Heat=sluggish me! And fellow readers in other countries- CNN did not tell me your weather but i hope you are comfortable too!

I didn’t work on the Mystery stole last night-i looked at the chart, saw all the symbols and my brain said “UGH NO!” so i played online and worked on my slow and boring cardigan for 4 slow rows.
So tonight i made myself work on the stole and after one row i have run into problems-i just can’t seem to make it thru a row without missing a yarn over. I was one stitch short on the right side and i found where i forgot a yarnover and fixed it. Went back to working on the right side one row 153 and now SOMEHOW i have one stitch too many!!!!!!!! and i dont even feel like dealing with it so here i am back online. I was afraid this would happen-i hope this doesnt discourage me and put me behind i really wanted to try and stick with it week to week so that way i can see the finished stole withe everyone else and not later. But i will just take a breather again and work on it tomorrow or maybe try and fix my row later. I just hope i don’t have have to deal with this every row-i was being so careful. ARRRGHHHH i just want to yell and stomp LOL i know i am being so silly but the last 10 rows of Clue 2 and now just beginning clue 3 and i am having problems.
well i feel better-glad i have a place to vent to.
Hope the rest of you making this are having better luck with your stole.

Not much else is really going on right now. The weather has been BEAUTIFUL-my ideal weather!! High 70’s and breezy. Little Man and I went to the local Art Fair yesterday-and i was a little disappointed. I like Art Fairs but it really seems like Art Fairs are becoming less and less “ART” fairs. I mean there was a huge booth of name brand sunglasses there and a lot of the booths were also just from the stores that happen to be on that main street already. It used to have om many awesome and original things- i used to leave wanting something from half of the booths. That is just MY opinion of this one fair-i know that there are other much better fairs out there. But we still had a lot of fun and we had an Elephant Ear-Mmmmm so GOOD-the art fair is the only time a year i eat one of those.
No big plans for the weekend-i am sure some playground time with Little Man and knitting of course!
Have a Great Weekend!!
