And I completely forgot, I won some Magic Stripes Yarn on the Whoduknit? blog a few weeks ago, that arrived today, Thanks Jane!! More yarn and it didn't cost me a thing.

The purpose of this yarn diet is two-fold, the first being Lent, the second being my sister and I are going here for the April 19th taping, I need to save money, so yarn was the first thing to go :).
P.S. Guess what? I need/have to buy dpn's in size 1 (don't have those) so that I can knit up all this wonderful sock yarn...off I go to the LYS :)
Knitting Fact -
1 out of 3 women knows how to knit or crochet. The number of women who do these crafts increased from 34.7 million in 1994 to 38 million in 2000.

Oh my golly. Look at all the goodies I received from Debb my upstream partner in this swap.
The kids took the pencils and light up keychain. I get the rest. Thank you so much!!!

Here are the socks, done in Plymouth Encore Colorspun, color 7022, pattern free from the internet.
Finished Northern Lights, now I need to finish the Whoduknit project, that darn entrelac scarf.
Then I can get started on socks #3. Love those socks, so quick and easy, instant gratification.
Hopefully I will be receiving my swap packages this week, which means more sock yarn and hopefully, scarf yarn.

I was going to get all prepped to make my next pair, I have the yarn and the pattern (Socktopia) but I cannot find the dpn's I bought last week, I thought I had put them in my sock bag...but they are gone, not in the drawer with all the other needles...don't know if I put them in one of the packages that I sent out for swaps today. UUGGHH Senior moment (I'm only 40 YIKES). Have to go back the the LYS to purchase more.
Oh well, this leaves me free tonight to try and finish "Northern Lights", and tomorrow while son #1 is at tennis, I can work on the entrelac scarf, I've been neglecting it all week.
I did survive Tuesday at preschool, I was the teacher. None of the kids complained and everyone said I did a good job.

What else, I am almost finished with my ITE III tote, I should be able to send late this week or early next. It isn't due until mid-March, but might as well get it finished and out the door.
I won a contest at Whoduknit yesterday, I guessed the closest to the number of knitting needles in the pot :), some bamboo dpn's are on the way to me (my favorite for making socks and mittens).
Heard back from sp10, I'm in!! Yea.
Finally, my preschool teacher is ill (I'm the assistant) and I will be teaching class tomorrow (and maybe Thursday). Pray for me, and for her to be back on her feet soon.
