Where have you been?

Saw this on another blog so I thought I'd try it. It's now updated to reflect my European trip.

This map does not include all the airports I've stopped in because I don't think that really counts, but for interest I've stopped over in Singapore, Taiwan and New Zealand.

As promised

Here are the photos of the socks I got from my Sockapalooza pal, Nancy. Along with the socks she sent a cute little bag and some Texas cascarones, which I had to look up on the internet because I didn't know what they were or what you were supposed to do with them!

Lying on the couch taking a break - I have worn them twice since getting them.

They fit really well and this yarn is really nice and soft, not scratchy.

Another view showing up Nancy's good work. This is the second pair of socks she's ever knit!

Sockapalooza!

I received my socks today from my sock pal Nancy. I haven't had the time to post photos yet but hopefully they'll be up by the weekend.

New Yummy Yarn

I ordered this 100% Alpaca from an Ebay seller and it's so soft and yummy (see pic below.) Getting this in the mail today has certainly made life more bearable. I had three exams today. I think they all went well, but still, my brain is rebelling. Now I have to study for the rest of them. I think I'm going to treat myself and go to my knitting group tomorrow, just because I think I deserve it. Anyway, here are photos:

I don't know what it is about orange, but I've been gravitating towards these hues lately. I even bought an orange skirt today. My ribbi cardi is also going to be kind of orange-y.

This is what the yarn is going to become once I have time. It looks a little challenging, but since I managed the Wave Skirt from this same issue of IK, I think I can push myself through. I like a challenge.
