no way

Wow! I somehow managed to win something, and something that really means a lot to me at that. I submitted the 500th pair of Jaywalkers to Grumperina's gallery, and I get sock yarn for knitting a pair of socks that I love. How awesome is that? I also have 2 skeins of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock in Flourite and Sherbert coming to me at some point, and a KnitPicks order of sock yarn on its way to me. To celebrate all of this goodness, I did nothing other than cast on for a new pair of socks. I have my gauge all worked out and I'm ready to go.

In lamer news, I really busted up my big toenail this evening, cleaning up after dinner. I rewarded myself for not passing out by using my new spa set from Target, mostly just the "hair mud mask". Gross. It smells fine, but I don't think I'll purposefully be putting mud in my newly shampooed hair again any time soon.

Oh my gosh - how exciting! That's really funny that Lorinda had checked with you about submitting the photo and then you win! STK have such wonderful color blends. Lucky you!

P.S. Sorry to bug you, but I have a project involving your hands that I'd like to start soon. If you can even just get me the first measurement (of the circumference at the knuckles) that would be enough!

That's too bad about your toe - is it warm enough to wear open-toed shoes for a few days?

I am soo excited about the socks that rock! This will be my first time working with the yarn.
My hands are about 6 1/2" around the knuckles, and don't worry at all about bugging me! (You're actually giving me a break from a history paper :) )
I think I can put my toe into a shoe, and I guess I'll have to, because it is pretty nippy around here now. I hadn't even thought about the shoe issue!

Yay for you!!! I'm happy that you won.
