1. What is your favorite yarn for felting, and why? - I would have to say that it has to be a toss up between Cascade 220 and Lamb's Pride Bulky. Bulky gives quicker satisfaction, but Cascade is very reliable too. I've had good luck with both and love how sturdy the fabric turns out.
2. Name one person in the swap who is not from the U.S. and tell us where they are from, and link to their blog. Kaili is from Estonia (note to self - get to know Kaili) :) LOL
3. Find one person in the swap who has a dog, and let us know the name of their dog(s) and link to their blog. I can answer this without even loking because Laurie D. was my pal last time around and she has an adorable dog!
4. Find one person in the swap who has a child or grandchild and link to their blog. Leslie N. has 3 kids. :)
5. And finally, tell us if you like October or November more, and why! (Yea, I know part of September and November are technically fall, but for this question, only October and November matter!) I like October the best. Autumn is my favorite time of year and November is when Winter starts where I live. I love the crisp air and the beautiful foliage. I love hayrides, and pumpkin patches and all of the other good stuff. I can't imagine a more beautiful Fall than in New England!

This guy has been my favorite since they started with Cas Haley a close second in my opinion. I guess he was everyone's favorite. He's just amazing. Anyone who can make you smile and feel good inside, is extra special in my book! Congratulations Terry!!

What site do you use to store your profile pic? Mine is at photobucket and once it has so many views, it doesn't allow anyone to view it again until the next month comes. It's annoying to see a red X everywhere I post rather than my picture.

These are my girls, my friends, my family, my confidantes, my beotches, my partners in crime (in some states). I don't want to imagine what my life would be like if I hadn't met them.
We met on a Scrapbooking Message Board about 3-4 years ago, and were casual aquaintances, until one fateful day when I emailed all of them and asked them if they would like to do a circle journal with me. We formed our own Yahoo group and began emailing each other every day. When our circle journals were done, we decided to meet in person and bring them all with us to share with everyone. That was 2 summers ago, and these pictures are from our "reunion tour".
If you've never been to Tybee Island, Georgia, you must go! The ocean is warm and you can find live sand dollars with your feet. But, the best parts that we enjoy most are dinners at the Crab Shack, Breakfast of Shrimp and Grits (ok that's just my favorite) at The Breakfast Club, and frozen drinks on the beach.
This trip we spent time in Savannah. We took a ghost tour (which was lame) and strolled along River Street, drinking more Frozen concoctions from Wet Willy's while we shopped in the stores. (Mmmmm Pecan Pralines).
We walked around to "sight-see" a bit too and went to a Haunted Cemetary where they buried many people who died of yellow fever, some while they were still alive. Because this happened, they would bury a rope with the body that went up through the ground to a bell, so if they had just been in a "coma" they could ring the bell. Men used to have to sit in the grave yard at night listneing for bells. This is where the terms "Dead Ringer" and "Graveyard Shift" comes from. I thought that was interesting.
These are a couple of pics from the cemetary. I thought it was so cool how the gravestones were put into the wall. http://www.ghostlytalk.com/node/170 This site tells why the stones are in the wall.

Well, here it is....
My first sock. I hate the yarn (knitted up), and I hate the pattern (too simple looking) but it was a good learning experience. I knitted it on two circulars and used a smaller needle for the bottom of the foot and the toe to make them more durable. I also used Kitchener stitch to graft the toe. There's a couple things on my knitting "To Do" list done!
I'll knit the other sock (sure I will), but I am itching to start a new pair. I have about 130+ sock patterns ready to try out (and about that many skeins of sock yarn now too) and I want to try to knit two socksat the same time.
So....my next sock will be the "I Love Gansey Sock" which is the August/September pattern for the Six Sock Knitalong Yahoo group. oooooooh cables in the round.
