Today I had an appointment at Hilltop to try out for a study testing products on the lower legs. BOO HOO I didn't make it. An area on my left lower leg was too dry. I did sign up for another. I will pick up soap for it on October 23 and it starts October 28 going through November 3 for a total of 18 visits. There are more visits and it is more time consuming but it also pays more. I certainly hope I am able to get into this study. I really could use the extra money.
I just sent my questionnaire in for the Hand Dyed Yarn Swap which you can find here: http://www.thehanddyedyarnswap.blogspot.com/. If it is not filled and I get in I will put a button on my blog. Last years swap was a lot of fun. Last year my partner sent me yarn she dyed using Knit Picks Bare and I dyed Briggs and Little Dura Sport yarn for my partner. It was a secret swap. I loved the dyed yarn my partner made me and have already knit it up into a pair of socks. It was only the second time I dyed yarn. This will be my third. So if that is something that interests you hurry on over to check it out and sign up.
Harvest Sock swap partner I check my yahoo bulk folder daily and have not seen any emails from you there. All I can say is keep trying. I have changed my mind on the yarn I am using for your socks. I found another I like better. I think it will make a nicer sock in the same pattern. I should be starting it by the end of this week.
I am finishing up some flowers for my striped bag. I am on the last flower and have the leaves to do. I hope it looks as nice as the photo on the pattern.
More Swap Questions
Again from the Felted Bag Exchange:
It's a crisp, cool, sunny Sunday in October - the sky is clear, there's a bit of a breeze, and the leaves have already started to change. How would you spend your day to best celebrate and enjoy the season? Are you at home curled up with tea and a book and a window open to enjoy the breeze? Do you head out on a long drive and hike through the mountains to see the trees? Go find pumpkins and colored corn to decorate? Tell us about your special day!
That day was just like this past Saturday when I was invited for dinner at Paula's. We sat outside in her screened porch before dinner. Paula read and I knitted. I did need to wear a light jacket but the weather was just lovely. The leaves were falling from the trees and there was a gentle breeze.
Here is the little miss sitting in the sink which is a favorite spot of hers.
