Last Chance

Today is the last day to sign up for the mini secret pal. I've heard from several of you already and so far we've got a great group! I can't wait to get started. I asked for opinions on the $ amount and the duration and most everybody is middle of the road so, once I get back to everyone with their pals (probably within the next week) we'll have 2 months to complete the exchange. Within that amount of time, you must be willing to spend a minimum total of $20 on your pal. If you've already signed up and have decided that you can't commit to that amount just let me know and I'll remove your name from the exchange. It's not a problem at all.

Diane S. - In answer to your questions, yes, this is a knitting exchange. You may send packages as often as you'd like as long as you send a minimum of $20 in gifts. While we won't be requesting specific gifts from our pals, we can certainly let them know what types of things we like the most. In fact, your pal would find it most helpful when choosing a gift for you. But please don't join if you're looking for something specific as there are no guarantees you'll get it. If you have an online wish list you're more than welcome to share it with your pal. I hope this helps you decide whether you'd like to join in on the fun or not. :-)

Lisa - I'd love to have you participate but I need your information. :-)

Last night I cast on for the new 6SoxKAL. The new pattern, Glad Raggs, is designed by Laura Andersson and is amazing! Hi Laura! I've ordered my beads and am still waiting for them to arrive. I have the ribbing done and am trying to wait patiently for the beads so I can continue. Will show photos as soon as I can. I'm using Desert Grass by Wildfoote and I really like it. The beads are celery and I think will be perfect. We'll see.

Can't wait to see some pics when you have some knitted with the beads in place. I have a hard time imagining how the beads are added, so it won't be something I will be jumping into soon. Also, I keep thinking the beads would be annoying against my skin, but of course, never having worn anything knitted with beads, I can't say for sure. Have fun, and I can't wait to see how they come along!
