Not much to say here, folks. They’re socks. Simple socks in a squishy yarn. Lovely.

BUT WAIT. There’s more! I made another thing!

Earrings! They’re just attached to cheapo Walmart earring wires and jump rings, but I needed some earrings, and I think these came out cute. I blocked them with a little glue so they’re stiff and not all bendy and annoying. Cute. Simple, but cute.

Okay, you all, I’m just about ready to roll out that surprise I’ve been talking about. In two days (more or less), it will be revealed. SO GET EXCITED. Or, you know, at least check back. Stay tuned!

(If you could sing the part in parentheses like “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey, that would be great.)

Anyway, my Ongoing Wish Swap package from PhoenixFireDesigns arrived at my house while I was out of town, but I’ve gotten it now and snapped a photo:

She claimed me for stitch markers and a “wisty surprise” (which I knew was a Tree of Life pendant). I love both things, but the tree is particularly lovely. Yesterday I went to Michael’s to get a chain to hang it on. : ) I don’t wear jewelry much, but I’m sure I can find and occasion to wear my lovely Tree of Life.

In knitting news: I’ve just started a project for the Ongoing Wish Swap (I know, again), and I’m also working on a tank top. And I have a FO that I never posted. Never fear, THERE WILL BE POSTS. : )

So I recently participated in the Rainbow Swap on Craftster.org. Unfortunately, my partner seems to have flaked on me, though she has until Friday to contact someone before the organizers of the swap get an angel (someone else on Craftster to make me a package and in return, they get Friend of Crafster status for a year).

Since I am sure she received my package (which I’m kind of bummed about) I’ll go ahead and show you what I made for her:

Fingerless mitts using Peaches and Cream in fiesta and some black Simply Soft

Crochet bracelet that took me a while and I liked, so I’m pissed I gave it to someone who flaked on the swap.

Little pouch I wasn’t using anyway.

Shrinky-Dink jewelry, which I’m really pissed about because I love how it came out and the ring was a bit of a PITA to get right. Rawr.

I also sent her a couple of extras, like shoe laces, the rest of the Peaches and Creme yarn, an a flashy light up thing. Hopefully I’ll get an awesome angel and I won’t feel quite as bummed.
