My SP7 Angel!!!

As I've mentioned earlier, my Secret Pal from SP7 bailed out about halfway through. I was assigned an angel, and she sent me a box today!! After a horrid day at school, it was a wonderful surprise to come home to this:

Some Celestial Seasonings Tea, Fran's Dark Chocolate Thins (mmm!!), a cute little notepad and pen, an adorable measuring tape with little paw prints all over it, and a plastic box stuffed to the brim with a gorgeous assortment ofsoft, beautifully dyed spinning fiber!! The color assortment is just gorgeous - and it has all of my favorites! Lots of blues, mauves and purples. Thank you very much, Angel, for making my day!! :-)

I'm getting ready to start the short row heel on my Socks that Rock sock. I had the heel halfway done last night when I realized that it would be a tad too small, so I ripped it back and I'm knitting a few more rounds before I try it again. The challenge with a short-row heel is eliminating the holes from the short-row wraps, and it's doubly challenging with a tightly spun yarn.

There is a contest for Knitting Camp 3 this year - movie props. I've been tossing ideas around, trying to come up with something unique for a knitted movie prop...and getting nowhere fast. Leave it up to Kelson to hit on the perfect idea! I won't tell just yet, but I'll give you a hint: "Look at the bones!!!!"

19 days of school left - you cannot imagine how much I want this school year to end! The seniors have 5 days left, and the senior pranks have started already. Today, somebody released thousands of clear marbles in 6 different hallways. Lovely.
