A Post Full of Squee!!!!!!!

Ok so this post has been long coming and i am sooo excited to finally make it. I could have made it yesterday but well life is really getting away from me as of late. Not to mention my whole argument with pay pal! GRRRRRRRRR. I have been told that it should be resolved by Friday. It doesn't affect me accepting payments only paying others... ANYWHO!!!!

First let me give a big Squee to my SP! She just sent me the HP Knits book.. and I am sooo in love with it and her! I did make my FIL open it bc she had it sent from amazon and they accidently sent a packing invoice. But she caught that and warned me. So I still do not know who she is or where she is from. But wow... now that i have looked more closely at this book, i want to knit everything! Well maybe not the blanket... LOL!

The Squee that we have all been waiting for. The girls over at Piddleloop, have put together this absolutly amazing project. One of their wonderful small project pouches, hand dyed sock yarn from Twisted, a pattern from http://dorkybestfriend.typepad.com/, and stitch markers from.... ME (Jen picked out the beads i only assembled them). Let me tell you they are amazing. Jen posted them for sale on Monday night and they are already sold out!!!!!!!! I am sooooo excited about these! they are amazing... and now time for the SSSSSSSSSSSSSSQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEin' pictures!!!!!!

A pic from the top, look at the amazing colors!

Close up of the Amy Butler Fabric, I am falling in love with her fabric more and more every day!

The bag is open, look at all the love in there!

Everything that is in the bag. The Yarn is sooo soft and yummy I can not even believe it! I can not wait to knit it up, or roll in it, i am not sure what comes first!

All the goodie bits. Stitch Markers, Notepad, Notions Pouch and BUTTONS! Piddleloop always sends the best buttons in their packages!

Needles to say i am uber excited!

But i do have other knitting news. As some of you remember I had knitted a seamless EZ sweater and well you never saw the finished version bc well i hated it... my guage was figured off it was huge and looked like a giant green potato sack! So it has been frogged, and I casted it back on...... my fingers are crossed!

That is my laptop modeling the new sweater. And let me point out that is a center pull ball hand rolled by ME! Thank you so much Erin for showing me how to do that about a million times, it finally worked! Ok i Squee'd when it worked!

In other handmade news... My etsy store has been updated with some earrings. Some stitch markers and soon to come, a couple of necklaces and more stitch markers (pictures are done just need to get them posted). So go ahead give it a look. Give me feedback on the items. Do you like them? do you not? What would you like to see, that you think i can do... LOL!
