Life Made Simple

I finally bought a swift!!! After the last fiasco of trying to wind a ball of yarn without one ended with me spending about 3 hours untangling yarn, it was well worth the investment. I bought it from my LYS and it was smaller than what I thought I would be getting and I love it. It also can be turned sideways which is an added bonus. Now I can wind yarn all on my own :)


I was able to join a swap right before it started. Thanks for mentioning it Knittingma! It's the Wee Tiny Sock Swap and might just be the best swap ever. I was able to knit the sock very quickly and am sending it out tomorrow. Love it! It was fun to make the sock and it is so adorable. I can't wait to receive my wee tiny sock!


As I mentioned in the previous poast, I started working on the Market Squares bag and I ended up twisting the stitches. I finally got up the nerve to undo it all and start all over. While on Spring Break this week, I was able to get quite a bit done. I really like the way it is turning out. I wasn't too sure about the combination of colors at first, but they're starting to grow on me.

Yay for your swift! I'm sure you'll be pulling out much less hair, now. :) And your wee sock is so adorable. Hope you had a great spring break!

Yes, sorry I didn't email right away - I've been kind of swamped. I love your sock and I'll probably blog about it today.

I've been wanting to make the Market Squares Bag for quite some time. I look forward to seeing your finished project!
