Where is the Stolen Quidditch World Cup Trophy??

Our final clues that were given to us by our headmistress were the items found on our mysterious thief. After much deliberation and thought and help from fellow quidditch players, I have gathered that the photoed items are:
  • Peruvian Instant Darkness Powder
  • Broken Wand
  • Blood Pops
  • Hand of Glory
  • Hogs Head
  • Golden Snitch
  • A Quidditch Broom
Given what Asst. Captain Bagnold of the Pride of Portree has pointed out I've determined the following:

I have no idea where the trophy is. ... Some detective I make, right?

I have decided these things though:
  • The items listed as 'found' on our thief points me to Draco Malfoy ... BUT that could be a red herring and I could be relying on the books too much.
  • The clues themselves make me thing of the following locations: Diagon Alley (where several things could be mended or purchased), Hogmeade (for the same reasons as Diagon Alley plus the Hogs Head is located there), Hogwarts (or more specifically the room of requirement b/c that's where al those things could be found and where Draco used his hand of glory and instant darkness powder), OR it could be hidden at Malfoy Manor, assuming Draco was the thief....
  • I really have no clue. My mind is boggled. I am stumped.
Since my location should be "more specific than a country and less specific than a city" I'm going to just guess that the trophy is hidden somewhere in the region of the UK that encompasses Hogsmeade, Hogwarts, Malfoy Manor, and perhaps Diagon Alley. I'm looking forward to a real answer, seriously!

Got My Kit!!!! SQUEE!

My kit was in my mailbox today!!!!! I have really been stalking my mail and checking it everyday with extra enthusiasm waiting for this moment! And really it didn't disappoint. I pretty much skipped down the hall from the mail back to home. :D

Rocky wouldn't get his nose out of MY box! Little butthead! ;)

My note! Shared, because it's in verse. And we all love the verse! :D

Everything unwrapped and moved to the table, where rocky couldn't get at it. Not that he'll mess with anything, but it's hard to take picture with his head in the way the whole time. :D
My very own Brea bag! :D With really cute lining!
My pattern (there's a story about this to follow), My new needles, and the front of my note/card
Luke used to ALWAYS blame things on rabid squirrels (he still will someimes). He would say things like they ate the last french fry/candy/whatever, or distracted him from doing something, etc. So he declared the rabid squirrels his no.1 enemy. THEN when we were both coaching we had a mock swim meet (it's a fundraiser plus gives the new kids the experience of a meet without the pressure). Luke decided that our groups were going to be teams and comptete against eah other. Mainly because he wanted to name his team "the barking mermaids" which he uses for everything. So I decided to then name my team "Rabid Squirrels." My kids got a huge kick out it and semi-terrorized Luke the week leading up to the meet. So when I saw the pattern name (Irate Squirrel Socks) I just about died laughing! LOL
My goodies from the Netherlands ... One chocolate bar is GONE! AND before dinner. Good thing I excuse all excessive eating between "the holidays." Starts with Halloween and end sometime around Easter. ;)
Christmas Tree ornaments! And they GLOW IN THE DARK!
The cutest little owl that opens and closes with a snap, and blue and silver stitch markers

My new yarn that was dyed by Eugene for me. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I love every color and it's SO pretty. I just wish I didn't have so many project already OTN b/c I want to use my new pretty yarn ;)
An attempt at a better view of the colors, it's dark and I don't have any natural light

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Eugene! I love my whole kit!
It's beautiful and it's perfect and I'm so happy that I've been giddy and semi dancing around the house. (It's a good thing no one else is home, I'm sure it's embarassing.)

Final Answer

Here's what I've guessed is in the box from Winnie:

Stolen Quidditch World Cup Trophy

Possibly I'll have a longer better post tomorrow with more of what's been going on around here, but I think I'm going to go to sleep now. :D

Hanukka started at sundown. :) So my first of the holiday gift knitting project is complete. This is the mini-scarf and hat for part of Sara's Hanukkah present. I had originally thought that I would be seeing her SATURDAY for latkes and candle lighting and dreidel, but actually I'm doing it on SUNDAY! So I may have time to finish a couple more Sara things too. (On that note, how big is a two year olds head? I might make Ellie a hat too. Does anyone know?) The mini scarf and hat are for Sara's Molly doll and math the set that I gave Sara in February. :D I'm going to try and finish up some other stuff for my girls before Sunday, Now I have a whole extra day to do things! YAY!

Busy Busy Week

It has been another busy week for me. I almost forgot about my blogging! I'm actually babysitting right now. Lol so this will be a quick little blog so that no one misses me. :)

Rowena and I did some magic with our hair today. =D Rowena has before and after pictures. I can probably get an after picture tomorrow. Lol

4 Day Weekend!

I think that this weekend is going to save m sanity. I've had two straight weeks of hair pulling and stressors that literally were making me insane. I'm so happy for it to be over! Thankfully, I've also gotten a rather good raise out of all my hard work! :D

Continuing with good news, I've mailed out my package to Elanor. I hope that it gets there quickly. I had a lot of fun putting it together.

I've gotten some knitting done too! I've managed to finish a pair of socks and pick up Percy again. :D I'll probably be putting Percy back down though for some holiday gift knitting.

Originally I had this grandiose idea that I'd knit everyone their gifts for the holidays. Then it dawned on me tht the majority of my family, being non-knitters, wouldn't appreciate the work and time and effort so I've decided to only knit fr a few people instead. Sara's gifts will be done first because Hanukkah is earlier this year. (Or at least it is compared to last year.) I'm making her American Girl Molly doll a hat & scarf to match the ones I made Sara... This won't even take me too long since the doll isn't huge. :D

Other people that I'm making gifts for are my mom and Aynsley. But they're pretty quick knits too. Not that I should wait for the 24th to start, but I've still got time.

What a Week...

This has been such a busy week for me! I have been SWAMPED at work. I've been so busy that I've gotten home later and fallen asleep on the couch. Lucky for me I have a very comfy couch. :D

I've got the majority of Elanor's kit finished and ready to send. I need to get a few finishing touches. I originally had planned to get it out today, but I didn't quite make it. :( It should go out in the mail early this week.

As far as knitting goes, I've been working on my newest pair of socks, but I've not gotten too far until today. :D If I keep at the pace I've gone today I'll have those done this weekend! :D

A knit update

It seems I haven't had one in a while... Or I have, but I was SUPER successful with knitting time this weekend since I'm now on crutches and sick of limping around with them, so I stayed home all weekend. I have Veteran's Day on Wednesday to do the same thing. Work has thrown a monkey wrench in my weekend knitting though by deciding to have stupid company cocktail party. :P

I've finished Elanor's knitted items. FINISHED... Knit, Wove in ends, Blocked ... DONE! I really like them too. As does everyone who has seen them either finished or in progress. :D Hopefully Elanor will too! Now, I just need to assemble the rest of the kit and get the EXTRAS all in order. :D

I've picked Percy back up. I managed to get 5 rows done yesterday night before I got too tired. LOL If I stick to my planned "schedule" I should be able to get the majority of my Christmas gifts and Percy, and my new socks done by December. YAY!

Pictures of my newest socks, the Black Hearts. Perfect for any member of the Molotov's murderous girl group. :D I maybe watch this cartoon WAY too much, but I do love Molotov. And the Black Hearts. So what better way to use my new almost black Sundara. :D

¿Dónde está Winnie? Semana cuatro

Ella está en el mundo latino, por lo tanto decidía practicar mi español con mis predicciones para esta semana.

¡El primer lugar que ella visitó es Ciudad de México para Día de los Muertos! Ciudad de México era originalmente una ciudad azteca armada en una isla en el medio del lago Texcoco por los Aztecas. Se va el lago, pero la ciudad todavía existe reconstruido por el español. Ciudad de México tiene muchos templos viejos de los Aztecas. El día de los muertos es un día de fiesta celebrado en México y por la gente latina en los Estados Unidos y el Canadá. El día de los muertos se utiliza para recordar la familia y a los amigos que son muertos. El día de fiesta se cree para tener comenzó con los Aztecas, pero tenía un diverso nombre.

¡El segundo lugar que ella visitó es Puente Alto en Chile! Es una ciudad pobre situada cerca del capital, Santiago. Encumbrando volantines es una actividad popular en Chile durante Fiestas Patrias, y es diversión barata para los pobres que viven en Puente Alto. También en Puente Alto hay un fuerte viento llamado Raco que ayude al vuelo de la cometa. Encumbrando volantines es muy popular después de agosto en que la lluvia para, y los vientos comienzan en la ciudad.

¡El tercer lugar que ella visitó es Olinda en Brasil! Olinda está en la costa del noreste del Brasil y hay una biblioteca pública ROSADA. Olinda también tiene un carnaval libre cada año. (Creo que hablan Portugués en Brasil, pero no hablo portugués. Entonces, este entrada es en español.)


To translate/summarize:

Mexico City, Mexico for Dia de los Muertos. Dia de Los Muertos is a holiday celebrate in Mexico and by latin people in the US and Canada used to honor and remember friends and famil that are dead. Mexico City was originally an Aztec city built in the middle of a lake.

Puente Alto, Chile which is a poor city near Santiago. Chile is famous for having fighter kites. Kite Flying is popular during Independence Day (Fiestas Patria). Poor regions of Chile fly kites as cheap entertainment.

Olinda, Brazil has a pink public library and a free carnival which it hosts. It is located on the Northeast coast of Brazil. Also they speak Portugues in Brazil, but I dont know portuguese, so that blur is still in Spanish. ;)

Look What I Can Do!!!!


My Lucy socks are done... Lucy yarn, Lucy pattern... for me!

These are the quickest socks that I have ever knit! I did the second sock in a total of 2 days and a few hours for the cuff and bind off! Really I am so excited by these. I wore them to work today... No one coud see them b/c they were in my shoes but it made me damn giddy all day knowing they were on my feet. :D

Where in the Workd is Winnie? - Week 2

In our second letter from the headmistress she talks of 2 locations. One which has a lovely castle and "spring air" ... I would think she MIGHT be in Las Vegas as the weather here has been rather spring like and we have our own "castle" ... BUT she included a photo with her letter which shows that she is not, in fact, here but she is actually in Dunedin, New Zealand at Larnach Castle. It's actually spring there, they're not just having strangely nice weather. :)

The second location she talks of is in Canada and is on the border of Quebec. It's known for having great Maple syrup and used to be part of three towns that have been merged into one. After a bit of searching I have determined her destination to be Stanstead, Quebec.

Where in the Workd is Winnie? - Week 1

It appears that our headmistress is scurrying out of London after having been under some false accusations from the Ministry. It's unbelievable really. Honestly, what could be they be thinking!?!?

Anyways she signed her letter "Ciao," which has led many students, myself included, to believe that she is headed into Italy next. However, with the way that "Ciao" has been incorporated into the English language this is purely just a guess. I only hope that she is safe during her travels.

1st Weeks Assignment...

  1. Someone with the same craft as you (either those listed above or another one). -Elanor Cadogan
  2. Someone who was born in the same month. - Waverly Trimble
  3. Someone from a different country. - Eugene Nigeno
  4. A new HSKS Quidditch player. - Stellwa Quinn
  5. A player who has been in 3 or more HSKS swaps. - Wisteria Lovegood
  6. A player who has a bigger stash than you! (And if your stash is the biggest, proudly say so!) - Megaera Black
  7. A player who both knits and crochets. - Rowena Bladvak
  8. Someone who has the same favorite color as you. - Hermione Bagnold
And I'm heading off to do my comments now! :)

My Toe-Up Adventure!

I have started on my second shawl, "Percy." It was part of a KAL with some fellow HSKSers. I'm using my Sweeney Todd yarn from the Nefarious club. The project got named "Ozymandias, King of Kings" from Percy Bysshe Shelley's Ozymandias. It's really VERY VERY pretty so far. The charts are in tiny print and one is patterned on both the RS and the WS so I'm moving a lot slower through that chart than I normally would, but I have really flew through most of it and, I think, that it's looking beautiful. In addition to starting another shawl, (I am now a lace and shawl addict!) I decided to attempt my first pair of toe up socks, encouraged by Ronni. This is my progress since Monday night. I am pretty thrilled with the socks. And I was surprisingly shocked at how amazingly easy toe-up is! WOW! Thankfully Ronni was able to give me some tips and links to help me get started. Where would I be with out my best friend? (((Awwwwww....)))

Yarn balled, Pattern Printed

Cast-on and the first few rows

Progressing up the foot

Pattern: Sprucey Lucy by Wendy Johnson
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts STR
Colorway: Lucy
I named them "Pork and Beans" after one of my favorite Weezer songs... I promise if you read or just know the lyrics you'll see why. Also the song has been stuck in my head ALL WEEK. ;)

Wishlist and Favorites

Favorite colors: blues, turquoise, pinks (but not mauve), (most) greens, purples, reds ... I like pretty much every color
Favorite scents: Vanilla, Jasmine, Lavender and some Raspberry if it's not overpowering ... I'm not big on scents really, I hate florals and I don't like things that smell like food, they just make me hungry
Favorite yarn brands: Malabrigo, Fresh from the Cauldron, Cosmic Fibers, Handmaiden, Knitpicks lace, Socks that Rock
Favorite yarn types (wool, cotton, etc.): Merino wools, Wool/Silk blends, nothing scratchy ... I REALLY love sock yarns, mostly hand dyed, and I've started to get into lace yarns too. I am not a fan of cottons. At all.... they hurt my hands to knit with. I also avoid acrylics that aren't an acrylic/wool blend because of the scratchy factor.
Favorite types of snacks: Oreos, Cheez-Its, Chips & Guacamole, Dos Equis

I knit. ... I have learned to crochet, but I've not really done much with it or picked it up.
My favorite projects are socks (which I seem to have difficulty finishing, SSS) and recently I've fallen in love with knitting lace and shawls. I don't do colorwork. It scares me. I haven't tried it yet but i don't have an interest in it either what with my never ending stash of sock yarn and tons of sock patterns and shawls for me to knit!
My favorite knitting needles are knitpicks nickel for circulars for lace or sock, knitpicks harmonies for DPNs... I also like the Addi Turbos for circulars as well. I REALLY would like to get a set of DPNs by Lantern Moon but I'll work on that want on my own. ;) Hooray for the holidays!
I also LOVE stitch markers. I make them; I buy them; I trade them with friends. I honestly do not think I'll ever have enough! I like to make sure that my projects have matching stitch markers. They need to match, but they also need to stand out so that I can see them. :)
My other hobbies include jewelry making (I also do stitch markers and row counter bracelets), sketching, reading, and swimming. Although nearly everything has taken a backseat to my knitting and swimming I've more or less quit. ;)

Allergies: some pollens and grasses, melons... Nothing that really pertains to the swap unless you're thinking of sending me flowers inside of a melon that I'm meant to eat, that could be hazardous.


Books that are on my "to buy" list:
Not that I necessarily WANT books in a kit, but they can give you an idea of patterns/tyoe of patterns to look for.
(links go to, I don't have an amazon wishlist because I share my amazon acct and I don't accidently want to be gift the BSG episode guide or something.)

Here is my finished, dry and blocked Ishbel... It's beautiful and I LOVE it!!! :D I am still not over the EVIL EVIL pins but I like my finished result. And I have ordered wires and better pins for my blocking future.

Here are the pictures of my Titania's Revenge progress. In the pictures they are about 3 1/2 repeats of the leg pattern done. I've now finished 4. The flash on the camera really caught all of the colors really well. When there isn't direct light the yarn looks like a tonal dark maroon/purple. The colors are really beautiful though. :)

Up next (now that I'm lace and shawl obsessed) is Percy. I'm going to use some Malabrigo lace in indigo that I just ordered from the Loopy Ewe this weekend. It'll be a KAL with Rowena and Olive. :) I'm excited to get started. That'll be my first lace project with lace weight yarn. My first lace weight yarn at all!

Wednesday, September 9, 2009

Ishbel is Finished!

Right now it's blocking... And I'm buying wires on payday. Because pins are evil... They are evil time consuming tedious evil little bastards. I'm happy for my shawl though!!! :)

BTW: This was a 16 day project from start to finish, I amaze myself sometimes. I've never knit so fast ever.

Rough Week

I started my new job, which while it's leaps and bound better than my old job, I still wish that I had a job relating to what I wanted to do... So far it's been good and I have gotten the hang of most all of theing that I am supposed to do, but it's tiring and it's a little crazy. I feel like this last week has been 2 weeks.

Also this week I was supposed to start up my class that was going to be a prereq for the program I want to get into to get certificates to work in the hospital, but because of strange admin rules that I wasn't really aware of, I dropped myself out and was unable to get back in. I'll sign up for ext semester and take the class and the lab online.

Also this week my bf's grandfather died. It's been sort of a rough week with that. His grandfather was probably my favorite member of his family. Today is the viewing and funeral...

So that's where I have been all week, if anyone missed me. ;)

Thursday, August 27, 2009

I finally picked my kit up!!!

It was being held hostage at the post office for the past two days. But I went this morning and got my charms kit from Dan'Azraella Deamonova. Here are the pictures:

Notice my beads are in my Ravenclaw colors. :D Thanks so much Dan'Azraella Deamonova!!!

Ishbel Progress Day 1

I've got 123 stitches on the needle and no mistakes. :) I SHOULD finish the stockinette portion this week. It's very pretty so far. Plus this yarn is so soft and so pretty. I need my new addi turbos to get here soon though because I'm pretty much at the end of space on my 16" circular... They should be here tuesday. If not I've got some scarves (actually 1 scarf, and my own starter that I'm re-starting) from scarf travels to work on.

Saturday, August 22, 2009

It's a Miracle

I finished a scarf in less than 2 months! That's a record for me. Usually I get bored and the project gets too redundant and I quit. I actually probably knit most of this in about a months time, but there were about 3 weeks after I came back from vacation that I never touched it because I was either tired or busy or sick or wallowing in my own misery because I hated my job so much. (Have I mentioned that I quit, and got a new job and I'm THRILLED!) .... Moving On ... Rosalie Bay is completed! I LOVE this scarf! It's so soft and so pretty and really very beautiful in person. I love the colors. I love the yarn. It's just beautiful.

The next project that I'm going to attempt is my very own Ishbel. I'm going to cast-on tomorrow because this is my first time doing a shawl and I'm too tired to attemt it at the moment. Plus, all of my late night cast ons are generally disasters. So I'll wait until I'm refreshed tomorrow. LOL I'm using my Cosmic Fiber Aquila in Other Mother from the nefarious club. The plan is to do the stockinette portion for the small shawl and the lace portion for the large shawl and get sort of a medium size. Rowena is going to KAL with me. She'll probably kick my @$ at it, but it's not a contest. I'm hoping to be able to use her to help me. ;) I've ordered some new Addi Lace needles that shoud be here soon, but I'm impatient so I'm starting on a 16" circular. I already added all the details to ravelry because I'm THAT excited and ready to go. (This also motivated me to finish the scarf much quicker.)

Calculus Joke

sin(x), cos(x) and e^x go to a bar. sin(x) and cos(x) are out having a good time and partying it up, but e^x is sitting at the table by himself. son(x) goes ove to him and say "e^x get out there and have some fun! what are you doing?" e^x replies, "What's the point? If I integrate or differentiate I just stay the same."

(I love this joke.)

P.S. ("I seldom drink beer, but when I do is Dos Equis")

GUESS WHAT!!?!?!?!?

I GOT A NEW JOB!!!!!!!!

I can't really announce or celebrate it like I want to yet in the muggle world because I've got to give notice and deal with the ramifications from that (they're going to be PISSED and take it as personal insult), so for now I'm celebrating here!

I'm still not going to be working in my field, but I'm switching to a job at the law firm my brother works at. They're willing to be flexible with my hours so I can go back to school. (My current job was pissed that I needed to adjust my shift to 3 minutes earlier for one class.) I get benefits, I'm still full time, and I have to work close with my brother. Everyone there seemed really a lot more laid back and mature than where I am now. Yesterday they took me to lunch, and then at the office hashed out a few details and said they would call and let me know. ... I wasn't even out of the parking garage and they said "We'll take you on as soon as you can start and match your pay rate!" Plus he added the "sooner the better."

I'm so excited....

Crazy Times

Due to unforeseen circumstances (I fail at divination) involving work, family, Mauricio, Rocky and internet usage I've not been able to post much. I've been trying to keep up with reading the posts and everything but I haven't done too great at it. :( I think I've done okay though. Bevin's kit is now officially in the post (minus the unprintable pattern)! I dropped it off tonight! I'm really excited for here to get it. I really hope she likes it.

In other news:
Last week I received an awesome WWW! It really made me laugh, which was greatly appreciated in a stressful time. :) Thanks! Cassie C. :)
(See below, you can click on it to get a better look)
The day that it arrived in the mail Luke happened to be over. Mauricio came home and brought the mail with him and said, "Who's Fluer Sweeting?" And when I answered, "Me. That's my Harry Potter name." Both he and my brother cracked up. Apparently it's that funny. :) LOL I put on my new curse free ring on a certain finger and showed it to them both. ;)

(I almost think I'd rather have the diamond and 100 years of sleep, especially if I don't have to age in that sleep... and Maybe I'll just make Rocky sleep too, that way when i wake up I won't be lonely. LOL)

In the area concerning my knitting, I've not got much to show, or talk about for that matter. The only thing I've really worked on is my Rosalie Bay. It's coming along rather well. I'm in love with it. :) It's pretty mindless so I can work on it while I watch tv or am talking to someone or am so tired I can't really concentrate much.

I've also gotten some (more) new sock yarns. Claudine (black/teal/green/purple) and Pam (pinks) came for the August shipment of the VSC. I also bought some new handdyed yarn at Knit Las Vegas when I went there with Aynsley. I love how bright that one is! :) I need to get to the sock knitting!

That's it for now. I should be blogging more regurally now!

Saturday, August 8, 2009


Another week is over. I'e been busy finishing up scarves for the scarf travels group I'm in with Ronni. (Right now I'm finishing her scarf to get it mailed off.) I got one of my scarves back today with all 10 sections done. :-D I also got another VSC package in the mail this week. I'm going to do a massive picture post later on today, or tomorrow if I don't get the time today.

Today I've got lunch with Aynsley. And the plan is to see a movie with Mauricio, maybe. LOL Tomorrow we're going to his grandparents for lunch and they're fixxing papa rellena with is my favorite Cuban food.... mmmmm....


I'l be back later with pics! :)

Real Quick

I've had a really busy week at work between other people's vacations and illnesses and family illnesses. I've not had much time on the computer. I'm spending the day running errands mostly but wanted to get my weekly post in.

My kit is ready to be shippped, but I'm having issues with printing the pattern because the printer is being tempermental.

I'll blog more later tonight. :)

Thursday, July 23, 2009

I am not having a good week

It's not one thing in particular. Just overall I feel stressed and angry and irritated and upset. I wish I was still on vacation. I wish lots of other things too, but now isn't the time or the place.

My kit shoud go out by Saturday and I'm sending Perenelle Tejedora's prize for winning the 3 truth's and a lie game either tomorrow or Saturday too.

That's it for now. I'm out.

Monday, July 13, 2009


So I am leaving for my longe awaited vacation Wednesday morning. I'm blogging now, so that i don't forget. Tomorrow is going to be a bust day with packing, taking Rock-Monster to my mom's for puppy-sitting, running last minute errands, and of course my midnight showing of Harry Potter. :) I'm way excited!

So Tuesday night I get to see Harry Potter. Then when I wake up Wednesday I'm heading to San Diego for 2 days (and while I'm there catching a Padres game, they'll probably lose), then from there I'm going to Disneyland for 2 days for my birthday! :-D There will also be plenty of beach going and relaxing in between. :) This is my birthday present from Mauricio. It's a good gift, don't you think?

Disneyland is one vacation place wher I actually do post pictures, so I'll have some pictures for everyone when I get back. :D

If anyone needs me for anything urgent I get my emails on my phone... I'm an addict who can't quit checking my emails. :)

5 skeins of yarn in my mail today! 5!!!!

Seriously! I ad 5 skeins of sock yarn in my teeny tiny mailbox... I've been skipping around ever since. :)

First we have my cosmic fibers shipment. (They came together.) I had received roving for my nefarious shipment and decided I wanted the yarn too. :) So I now have the beautiful Alpaca/Silk other mother sock yarn. The other 3 were my "BuffyVerse" yarns. Buffy was my FAVORITE tv show when I was younger. And Angel was my first love... (not really, maybe) So I ordered Buffy on cashmere sock, Angel on silver silk sock and Fred on merino/tencel.

The 5th skein of yarn was the 2nd half of my birthday gift from Ronni. It's Woolen Mill St yarn by Christina Marie Potter in the Zoe colorway. Another yarn based on a Whedon fandom. LOL It's so so soft and so pretty. My other present was the super cute turtle sock blockers in the picture. ;) I have the best best friend in the whole world.

While I was in my giddy sock yarn picture taking bliss, I also snapped a couple of photos of my 2 most recent WIPs. My Montego Bay in my Rosalie yarn from the VSC... I've called it Rosalie Bay on Ravelry. Coincidently enough, there is an actual Rosalie Bay in the Carribean. The other is my titania socks, which I've named "She's a Knockout" after a Social D song. (For those who didn't know or notice, I name all my socks after songs.)
