More Disney pics from August 2008. Great time, but HOT!!! Couldn't even think about knitting. However, this trip convinced me to become a member of the Disney vacation club.

Longing for Spring Swap

I sent off my package today to my partner in Houston, TX. I hope she likes it, I did try to tailor it to her profile. I sent a bunch of vintage pattern booklets, a flowers to go kit, a skein of j-knits sock yarn in a blue color way, a set of sock needles, and a giant hershey kiss. Hopefully she will have as much fun with her goodies as I had putting them together. Sorry I didn't get any pics.

Try it, you might like it!

I am the world's biggest chicken about needles....childbirth, no problem. broken bones? piece of cake. but needles.....freak me the f#*k out.

But i conquered my fear the other day and donated blood. and it wasn't bad at all. AND they give juice and cookies! free snacks and helping someone? not too shabby.

Right now, most communities are in desperate need for donations. PLEASE, contact your local hospital or Red Cross, and make a donation. Then you can justify buying more yarn as a reward for doing something good for others!!
