More Swaps

All right, I’m getting as bad as Sharon :)! I’ve signed up for 2 more swaps. Round 2 of the Hand-dyed Yarn Swap is now open. We’re dyeing sock yarn again. Sign up–it’s lots of fun. I also signed up for Knitters Coffee Swap 3. The last round was so much fun, I had to sign up again! This swap is not anonymous, and my partner is Cindy. That’s it then for the rest of the year! But swaps are fun and addicting. Just look at the fun package I got in the mail today from my secret pal:

The little bag and takeout box were full of Almond Joys and Mounds and Hershey’s with almonds. The yarn is Sugar and Cream. I’m thinking jack o’ lantern washcloth. There’s a stuffed pumpkin, too, that Goozle took. Pumpkin is one of his newest words.Ā  Thank you secret pal!
Here’s what I’ve been working on for the Strikke-Along:

It’s not coming along real fast because I’m not so sure about this:
I’m debating whether or not to rip it out or just keep going. I don’t want it to look crappy. I have to get going on it if I want it to be done on time to take the steek class at the yarn store.

    Google Jogless Jog and you will find ideas to lessen or eliminate the jump from one color to the next. The gappiness can be snugged up when the ends are woven in unless you have been weaving as you go, then you when have to ease the loose stitches along the row. Looks great!

    Be supportive to yourself! I love the colors, Goozle will love it! G always took her kids to the pumpkin patch, but the rule was the pumpkin had to be carried by child, tiny p-tiny child… ( :

    I think it looks ok. Isn’t that where you’ll cut it? I have managed a jogless join maybe once, but I wasn’t trying too hard! I figure it’s on the side of the knitting that nobody really sees…

    Thx so much for my Vegan Swap 2 Package. I’ve not gotten my ball unwrapped yet and I’ll take pic later today ~ must go buy a new camera. LOL I see we are in several of the same swaps and yes, I agree they are addictive. ;D

    Take care and I’ll see ya around the swaps.
