Coffeeswap package

I was in a knitting coffeeswap and just recieved my package from Norway!!! It was a super cool package. I got purply yarns to go with a pattern for some Fair Islish mittens and she designed the pattern herself. I love these swaps!!! I get to connect with creative people!!! Then, I got coffee, chocolate, coffee candles and a million little knitting things!!! Stitch markers, DPN's, needle gauge, buttons, little sewing kit, lace and embroidery thread!!! These swaps are GREAT!!!

coffee and clapotis

I had to take pictures for a contest that I am doing with my coffee swap. I really liked this picture, but didn't use it for the contest, so I decided to put it on my blog. I am almost, almost done with my Clapotis. Sometimes working on these looooong things is just a practice in patience!!!

Skiing in Virginia

OK, so now you will see why I have given up skiing since moving to Virginia!! There is not as much snow, the cowboy boots, the pajamas instead of ski pants... OK, so my daughter has added some of her own style to the Virginia skiing. I thought it was funny!
