Death , Hand Dyed Swaps and Raverly

So it has again been a while... I was never good at writing in my diary as a kid and it seems that that is carrying over to my blogging! Well Of late I have died. I've been playing Death by Socks, a yahoo group based off of the Yarn Monkey's Sock Wars. I have once again died. Killed off by Clare in Australia, who ironically was my first assassin in Sock Wars. I received a loverly pair of green socks in the cable pattern for the game in a wool, silk, alpaca blend yarn from a local shop by her.

I had to take out the toes and rip them back a bit to get them to fit just right, but now they are perfect!
Also I am now participating in the Hand Dyed Yarn Swap And I just received my yarn and dye in the mail. It was my first time ordering from Knitpicks and I enjoyed the speed in which I received my order! Now I just need to dye the yarn for my pal Jessica of Alabama. Though I was informed by my partner that my yarn was already on it's way! I am so looking forward to receiving it! It will definitely brighten what has of late been a bit depressing time. I've been a bit overwhelmed by work, We just had a big yarn sale over the weekend.
And Lastly I was just invited to join Raverly
which is exciting. Now if I could just find the time to knit and sew the projects I have in mind I would be peachy keen!

Puppy of Love

Having been busy lately I haven't had time to write about the new pup-a-doo. Her name is Bailey and she's about the bestest birthday present ever! DJ and I went an adopted her on my birthday from the North Shore Animal League.

I'm in puppy love! Though she has grown about 6 inches in the month plus that we have had her..... Apparently a German Shepard-Doberman mix ends up as a big girl!
But I love her, and the fact that DJ is the one who gets up in the morning to take her for her first walk of the day (which sometimes is 6:30 am)is wonderful!
