Secret Pal Box!

I got a box from my SP and here's what I got; 2 skeins of Noro Airisu (the white/green/magenta one) and 2 skeins of Araucania Pahuen which is a really cool cotton, I don't know what to make with these but they are so cool. I also got a cute journal and an issue of IK. Thank you, thank you, to my secret pal, whoever you are :o)

Here's a picture of the goodies:

I Promise I'm Still Knitting...

I have 2 finished pairs of socks to offer, the first is a victorian lace pattern from Six Socks KAL, I used Knit Picks essential solid in burgundy.

The second is a pair of Tidal Wave socks, pattern from SWTC, and yarn is Tofutsies. I really liked this yarn, it split at first but once I got going it was fine. the finished product is so very soft.

Here's a close up of the stitch pattern

I also finished my chevron scarf for that KAL but it still needs blocking so stay tuned for those pictures.

I'll leave you with a super cute picture of my kiddos, all together now..AWWWWW.....
