Mail, and more

Mail came Monday, including my sock yarn scrap swap. :) Here are the extra goodies:
Extra Goodies
My favourite extras are the skull stitch markers and the sheep button. :)

From Robyn's shop, I also bought a keychain sock blocker and a set of bamboo crochet hooks:
Purchase
(I didn't buy the Soak advertisement, I just didn't know where to stick it in the photos of stuff included.)

Mmmm! First layer of sock yarn scraps:
Sock Yarn Scraps!

Is that....:
Sock Yarn Scraps!
...I think it is! I think I see Socks That Rock "Walking on the Wild Tide"! I drooled over the photos when that skein came out. A sample of my very own! :)

Second layer:
Sock Yarn Scraps!

I had to knit up that bit of Wild Tide:
Blanket Square
There was the perfect amount for a square. Thanks Robyn!

Don't worry, M, I didn't forget to make you a Baby Tart:
Baby Tart Toque
I'll e-mail you to find out what your address is.

After dealing with bobbles, my next treat:
Keychain Sock Blocker
Can you believe I knit an entire sock at knitting night? Okay, I admit I didn't weave in the ends until I got home. ;) And that sock is more Socks That Rock! It's colourway "fire on the mountain". I even had a smidge left for my blanket... which has already been worked into another square:

Knitting Mama and I are both making blankets from scraps of sock yarn. In order to have more variety in our blankets, we swapped some of our scraps.
