I'm a Loopy Groupie!

I finally got to the order that puts me into the Loopy Groupies. I was excited to receive the package because I knew it would have something special but I didn’t know how special!! I ordered one skein of Louet Gems in Shamrock for Saartje booties. Sheri also sent me a large Loopy tote bag and two skeins of Lorna's Laces in Motherlode. That yarn is gorgeous!! I don’t know why I never noticed it before. Sheri really outdid herself on this one. Wow. It was nice to get all the goodies.

I went to meet my Little Sister today but there was a big misunderstanding. She was at an elementary school in Satellite Beach and for some reason BBBS thought I wanted to go to that school. Its about an hour away from my work so I couldn’t go there. So they are searching for another Little for me. I wonder if she was as disappointed as me. I really wanted to meet her!

I’m still trudging along on the Striped sock. I am almost halfway through the foot now. At least the ribbing on the top of the foot is keeping it interesting. I want to have it done by this weekend but that’s asking a lot of me. We’ll see.

Well its time for me to head home for the day. I don’t think I will be answering any emails this weekend. I think our laptop is biting the dust. It won’t turn on right now. We have only had it 2 years…how long do laptops last? I really don’t want to have to buy another one so soon but it doesn’t look good… :-(

Have a good weekend, and happy knitting!

Awww! That sucks on the little. That's a heck of a drive! I'm sure they'll find you someone closer to home, and hopefully she'll find another big who's just as cool as you.

With no computer, I bet you'll finish that sock in no time. At least, I would. :) What else is there to do besides knit and surf the net? Oh yeah... there's life.

Wow, nice yarn you got from the loopy ewe. Sorry to hear that you have to wait longer for the little sister, but I agree that would have been to much of a drive. I hope the laptop is fixable.
