The giveaway goodies for the Head to Toe – A Knitter’s Gifts project came along with the Dog Pound Pals goodies.
Here’s what arrived
A few tote bags – perfect for those knitting or crocheting project or other needlework and the Crafty Ideas notebook. Just blank ruled paper inside. A nice size for writing lists, project notes, new project ideas, etc.
I plan to leave mine in the drawer of the end table next to my chair where I knit. I’m forever stealing needles from other works in progress that I need for a new needle and never making a note of it so later I start knitting with the wrong size needles. So this will be my notebook where I keep track of things like that, changes I made to patterns, yarn I want to use for a specific project, etc…. just crafty ideas. 🙂
Also, since sale prices were extended I ordered a few more copies of the Dog Pound Pals Calendar. They just turned out so cute – I can’t wait until next year so I can use one.
The delivery man just brought my new sewing chair – it was the same man who delivered my sewing machine – I promised him I had not ordered anything else – heavy or big or otherwise for him to deliver in the snow and cold. He just laughed. So now to let it warm up to room temp a bit so I can put it together and try it out.
In the meantime, the sweater sleeves are blocking and I’m going to work on one of the Dog Pound blocks – just have to go find a good movie to keep me entertained.
Lastly if you are a DPPAS member – please check the list below. Today’s drawing will be done using a random letter generator (like first person in the list whose first name begins with B or third person in list whose last name begins with M – that sort of thing) and some of you did not actually provide me with your names or not both first and last names. Some I could figure out (I think) from email addresses but some I just listed part of an email address to identify a person or just a first name. If you don’t want to give me your name, that’s fine and drawings will be just based on the information I have, but if you want me to change this list, email me and I’ll get it updated.
