Everything went fine. I appreciated what I received. I really enjoyed buying for my partner and spoiling her. And I love the cloak and dagger aspect.

Drew and I do love to go to the apple orchards for fresh apple cider and hot apple donuts. We also enjoy cooking cookies and soups and a lot more casseroles during the fall and winter seasons.

Sorry I haven't been on lately but I had a good reason. Wanna see????
Yeah My second pair of socks ever. I joined sock wars II and have been busily knitting to get these out before my assassin kills me. I even made a poor man's sock blocker with a coat hanger. The only problem with these socks is that the skeins of yarn I used were wound opposite and I didn't notice until I was half way down the leg. OOPS Oh well. These socks will be going out in the morning mail.
Well I will write more later. I have a house that has been put on hold since Friday so now I must clean.

Review -I love this store they are always friendly and put up with my son when I have to bring him in. Dawn and Ron own the store and Beverly my SnB friend works there. They also have a Red Bag club that gives you 10% off when you bring it with you. They also have Triple Punch Tuesdays. Gotta love those. Just recently they offered a yarn dyeing class which I loved.
Did they have patterns? Great selection of sock yarns? They have loads of patterns and quite a selection of sock yarns. Great selection of needles and all types of fibers.
Your name and blog address Lexie http://mommieofdrew.blogspot.com/
I will post pics after I go to the store tomorrow for Triple Punch Tuesday.

I also did another skein with 3 pinks and 2 purples in a more tye dye look. But it isn't dry enought to wind and I don't have a swift so I have to be very careful while winding.
Then I came home with an extra skein of naked yarn. Drew and I went to the store and bought Koolaid and vinegar to dye the yarn. Drew wanted a rainbow so here is a pic of it drying in my shower. So we used Red(fruit punch), Orange , Yellow(lemonaid), Green(lemon lime), Blue (berry blue) and Purple(grape).

When the weather gets colder I start drinking hot tea with honey instead of iced teas or sodas. We also eat a lot more casseroles and things cooked in the oven.
