She's Outta Control

No, not me. My secret pal !

Crystal Palace bamboo double pointed needles. In sizes US 2 and 3. You know what I think? I think my secret pal is Bill Gates. In fact, I'm quite sure of it. I mean, I was totally unaware that Bill knitted but what other reasonable explanation can there be for this amazing influx of gifts? It's like my birthday every day of the week. After all the craptastic things that have happened this year this is a most welcome blessing. Now all I have to do is figure out who it is so I can repay some of this generosity.


Two beautiful sock bags were also in my mail today. Isn't this cow bag great? And I think the lining is perfect. This is, of course, a trek sock bag. I can't show you the other bag because it's for my secret pal and the knitting blog world is a small community. But seriously peeps, if you don't own a trek sock bag you really need to. These are OODLES better than those Lantern Moon silk sock bags. I know, I own one. We're talking a quality product here. These babies are built to last. And all you have to do is set up a swap with trek. Does it get any easier? I think not.

One ball at a time, that's how we build our sock yarn stash. Lana Grossa's Meilenweit "Fun & Stripes." I like this colorway a lot. I'm going to use it to make the Knit Picks "Mock Croc Socks." It's a free pattern, you should go download one. I'd link the pattern but it appears as though the Knit Picks site has blown up. What in the world does "There has been an overflow or underflow in GC pressure memory," mean? Sounds like too many knitters buying too much yarn. Funny, usually little Cindy Lou has gone to bed by now. Ha!

How friggin' hot was it in California today?

100 sweltering degrees.

    Well, hell! I saw your post on CAP, and had to check out your blog. The cat picture topped it off. You are now on my must-view-today blog list. (insert very put-upon sigh here)

    trek's bags are the BEST. i want every single one of them. and then i could go buy yarn to put in every single one of them.

    LOVE the pic of the cat in the fridge. I know how he/she feels. I've been stuck in a small room for a 'retreat' at work today and I think my body temperature is up about 10 sticky degrees, ugh! Heh.

    -- Yer Pal, who is beginning to think she really IS Bill Gates. At least, she seems to have to attend as many meetings as if she were.

    secret pal,

    poor andy, he's just *so* hot. he just turned one so this is his first experience with heat. last year doesn't count because he was a kitten and we all know how oblivious kittens are.
