Yes, it is already promised to someone.

No, I did not buy a new wheel.

As usual, I have had a wonderful time with the Knitter's Tea Swap. My swap pal no longer blogs but I can assure you that she was an excellent swap pal and I hope to keep up with her adventures on Ravelry. I had a lot of fun picking out her treats and as I opened my carefully wrapped package I was entranced and delighted by the contents.

A wonderful variety of teas and treats for my ever-present sweet tooth. A little bit of Play-Doh for my nephew (thank you Terby - he will love it!), and the most wonderful yarns!

Beautifully dyed Shibui fingering and a long-time favourite, Mountain Colors Bearfoot. Terby, this was truly serendipitious as I had been petting the Shibui while I was in Portland. Thank you!

Paying it Forward

I found this on Jacqui's blog and couldn't resist.

I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

Those of you who know me well know that knitting isn't the only thing that happens around here so if you are close by it could be baking (toblerone shortbread cookies?), preserves (homemade blackberry jelly), a softy or something knit (I tend towards lace and socks if you want a hint).

Any takers?

Bob's Day

The travelling bear was quite happy with this bit of the Oregon Coast.
