Have Sock, Will Travel
Three Cups and a Giveaway Today

Given and Received

I hurt my neck - too much intense knitting is my guess.  Things are at a bit of a standstill over here so I thought I would take the time to thank a couple of wonderful blogging pals for some mail candy I have received in the last couple of weeks.  Follow the links to see.

Stephanie of A Little Deer is an incredibly talented gal.  She sent me this amazing painting.  There are houses.  On a hill.  I love it!  Thank you Stephanie!

This Vintage Chica, Eren, sent me a cool vintage coverlet that I had admired.  I don't know what I am going to do with it yet, but I will make something with it.  She also sent me some very cool vintage napkins (sorry no pics) and a great book   It was extremely generous of her - thanks Eren!

In exchange for the lovely buckets Meg made for me, I sent her some handmade goodies:


a patchwork belt


and a knitted bag.

I am going to try to take it easy and resist the urge to finish the socks in the hopes that my neck/shoulder will heal.  Have a great weekend and don't forget to "spring forward" on Sunday.



I'm sorry about your neck. That's a bummer since you were in such a knitting groove. Hope it's gets better soon.
Those are some wonderful gifts you received. And I love what you made.
Try to have a good weekend. If you're into basketball, there's lots of it on this weekend.


i am having belt envy!
the bag is lovely too.
i hope your neck is feeling better, pronto!

One of those extreme sport injuries, huh? Hope it feels better pronto.

(psssst- look at me. I'm commenting. don't say anything, or the spell might be broken. tee hee. I haven't been able to comment on typepad sites for so long, i've forgotten how nice it is...)

I hope your neck heals soon. Your belts are so great. Always so bright and cheery. Have a great weekend.


Oh my! I would absolutely ADORE a tutorial, or even a bit of a clue as to how to construct a belt like that. It looks so fun!


The belt is so fun! Great fabrics.


i always have "knitting injuries" this time my knee....yep, from sitting "indian style" too much! Great belt and bag! Did you make the bag too?
