sockapal- 2- za **edited**

Look what i finished today and with time to spare!!! Yup those socks are for you sock pal! i'm going to wash them block them and then pack 'em up and mail them to you by the 15th...

i finished them in the car as you can tell. it's a 4 day weekend for my DH so we went to munchen (munich) zoo it's a good 2 or more hour drive by car (if you don't hit a stau or traffic jam) so i brought much knitting or crochet for me to work on. and you see my work. i also finished a few more washcloths for the exchange i'm in. i'm going to take pix of those when i'm totally done with them...
now for the fun! this was an awesome day. no for those of you who don't know dogs are allowed just about everywhere here in germany. so they were all over the zoo. well as we were going into the cat house we stopped to look at the lepoards and the bubba saw a baby one close to the glass and as she bent down a dog barked the curious kitten decided he wanted a look see. and this is what you get with just the right timing... and a bunch of luck!


now that's the best pix and it's not a fake we're that close to the animals here. it's great i loved it! now not to let the bootie feel left out here's a pix of her telling the elephants Hi. she really enjoyed them and kept saying OOOHHH LOL it was sooo cute!

on another note i've got some wonderful ladies testing out my pattern for the bag i made up and i hope to have it all ready for sale mid Oct. sometime. i was sharing my joy of this new found skill with my DH and he was like "what are you doing that's not smart!"
he was refering to haveing people test my pattern out before i sold it.. i tried to explain it to him but he just wouldn't hear it.
oh and i forgot we were supposed to reveal to our SP's who we were and my SP got her present and was excited. i was joyed to see her reaction! i loved spoiling her it was soo much fun going to her blog and reading about her reactions to what i sent. but unfortuantely i've not heard from my SP.. so i have no clue who started out spoiling me.. i am hoping it is just slow mail so i'm still going to wait a little bit.. i'm bummed though**. that's not all though i also arranged a yarn trade with a friend and i haven't seen the package she got together for me.. i hope those mail people aren't keeping my goodies! i may have to lay the law down..
well that's all for now i've got to go...thanks for stopping by... the spell check isn't working today so please don't mind it!

**look i got a comment from my SP she has been busy but getting things together for me! i KNEW she was going to come thru! as i sit paitently by the mail box. LOL**

I hope you finally hear from your SP. It's not me, this time! I opted out of SP5 b/c of our move and everything. Plus, I was kind of bummed b/c the same thing happened to me the last time. My SP tuckered out...never revealed...only sent one package at the beginning. Oh well. I'm in for SP 6 so we'll see how that one goes.

Hi Allena, just wanted to let you know that I got your socks today (I think they arrived a few days ago, but I was away at school and came home today) and they are GREAT! I love the colors, and the pattern, and the funky pooling... and they are sooooo soft! I just scanned through your blog and noticed that you dyed the yarn yourself, I have always wanted to try dying with kool-aid and now that I've seen how great it can turn out, I think I'll have to! (Not to mention, I'll have to try that knitpics yarn too!) There is one tiny little problem with them, the bind-off is too tight for me to try them on :( but I can undo it and fix it easily enough... I held them up to my feet and it seems like they'll fit, hopefully I'll know tomorrow! Anyway thanks again!!!! (I'll post about this on my blog soon too. :))
