You know what the very best thing about knitting the Beekeeper's Quilt is?
I get to take part in FO Friday whenever I want now. All I have to do is sit down for half an hour or so and fiddle with some sock yarn, and voila! Puff!
Isn't it cute?
And now it has a friend. 2 down, 382 to go!
Also, in case you missed it before, I'm hosting a mini skein sock yarn swap for Hexipuffers, current and future. Here's a repeat of all the details:
The Power Puff Mini Skein Swap (What? I've always wanted to be a Power Puff Girl.)
Who: You. And your friends, and knitting buddies and whoever. Up to 20 people. And yes -- if you want to be 2 people, you can send 20 skeinlets and get 20 back. Just let me know ahead of time.
What: Sock yarn, baby. I'd prefer to avoid acrylic, but anything else will work. Send out something you'd love to receive and good things will come back to you (in a neatly packed envelope, no less). Each skeinlet should be 20 yards in length. Once sign ups are closed, I'll tell you how many to send.
When: Sign up by October 3, and send your yarn (and a self-addressed stamped envelope) by October 15. I'll turn it around as soon as it all arrives, hopefully no later than November 1. I'd promise earlier, but we have a few international folks who want to play and I want to make sure we have time for everyone's yarn to get here. On the international front, don't let the SASE thing scare you off. If it's an issue let me know and we'll try to work something out.
Where: Email me by clicking that cute little typewriter over on the right (or message me on Ravelry -- my ID is cagirlygirl), and send me your email address. I'll send you my mailing address and you'll be Officially Signed Up.
Why: Because ZOMG, SO cute! Also, it's fun. And swaps are neat. And I'll be really sad if I hold a skeinlet-swapping party and nobody comes. What more reason do you need? Oh. You need actual reasons? Well then... It's way more fun to do stuff like this together, and I'll host Power Puff progress parties, and we can trade links to cute puff decorations, and encouragement when you have one puff down and 383 to go is always a good thing.
Questions? Shout out in the comments, or shoot off an email and I'll come up with some sort of totally plausible answer.
At the moment, we have 9 confirmed swappers. But you still have a few days to let me know if you're interested. The more the merrier!
Now go visit all the super-talented fiberistas at Fiber Arts Friday and FO Friday and tell them how awesome they are (because they really, really are). Then go have a spectacular weekend, please.
