USPS Claim

Here is my Rare Antique Golden Fleece Sock Knitting Machine. The Post Office broke the ribber arm off it....CURSE CURSE CURSE!!!! There goes $769.00 down the SHITTER if the Post Office doesn't cough up!!! The words that really came out of my mouth I will not post....I have never placed a claim with the Postal Service...The Package was insured....

Started Iris Scarf

click on images to enlarge
I started Iris yesterday....looks lovely so far. It will not be used as a scarf...too much work involved, It may be a dresser scarf instead.
Beads are from Fire Mountain Gems. Sead bead #8 Trans. Rainbow Amber. Fringe beads FLT TRI 5x5mm Vitrail. I bought 1/2 kilo of the sead beads which is overboard on the amount, but it was way cheaper.

Knit Picks Order

Yippy Skippy!!! I received my Knit Picks order today, but I still need to finish a project before I start another one. The classic fixed circular needle is for the next project... Iris. I could not resist the Nickel-Plated DPN Sock Set... it was on sale (as cheap as chips $19.99). I also had to get the Harmony sock needle set for airline travel. Hopefully I'll be able to take them with me on international flights...fingers crossed. The Chart Keeper is great for lace work charts. I needed another one do to the fact my charts for Mystery Stole 4, aka (Serendipity) are huge and i'll set the keepers up side by side. It should work a treat.

FedEx Delivery

Due to extreme bad weather conditions (Freezing Rain) my Little Knits package delivery was delayed from last Thursday to today (Monday). It's still like an ice rink outside and will probably stay that way for a couple of months yet. Anyway here is my package from Little Knits...17 skeins of Online sock yarn.

I would like to start a new project....Iris. I have 2 skeins of Sea Silk (Autumn Pale), beads, and Iris pattern, I'm just waiting for the needles to be delivered from Knit Picks ( US3 40" fixed circular). I would also like to get an old knitting project finished first, any project will do. Just my little way of disciplining myself.
Oh I also have the Hydrangea pattern.....hehehe
