  2. I found podcast recently and love them too. I put a whole bunch of podcasts on my ipod and listen to them while I walk.
    That yarn is super yummy and your husband is going to be so lucky to have a pair of socks from it.
    I hope your Thanksgiving was a lovely one, ours was here.

  3. Thanks for reminding me to come visit again:) I don't crochet and knitting needles are in the same catagory as chopsticks for me...can't work either one of them! But I love to see what you create with them and really like this yarn you're using now...what great colors. Almost makes me want to pick up a hook/needle or two...ummm, nah :)
    Hope you had a great Turkey Day. When you get your dreamy little shed all foofied up, give us a peek!

  11. Hey sweetie, I get the whole eye thing. I could only wish to have an owl blanket, but these are a pair of the jammies I whipped up. But, a owl blanket now that's an idea. Have a great warm relaxing weekend, like I'm going to try and do.
