Sorry I was missing. We had some "stuff" come up.

I have no idea who my secret pal is. I got one package for the first deadline. I was sending to RAYN - the second one was late due to the above mentioned "STUFF". Sorry about that :)

Thanks so very much

I have finished the Rosalie Scarf - and I put a picture of it on my SparkPage.

I am not a great photographer and I don't have anyone at home this month to model it, so it is pinned to my design wall.

I really like this scarf and I will use this pattern again.

Thanks to my Secret Pal.

TINA...you are right it is me...but you should have gotten a first package with 2 skeins of the pink...the first time I went to the sho they only had 2, but when I went back they had more so I got you 2 more. I sure hope the first package didn't get lost...I didn't send it priority because I was short on funds tht week. It was in a manilla envelope.

The last day of June. My weight has not changed but that is my fault. I am eating better and today I got out and walked. I have signed up for the July Challenge - so will definitely be out walking in July.

I will be finished tonight with the scarf that my Secret Pal (99% sure it is PAX234 - emoticon )sent the yarn and pattern for. I would have been done yesterday, but I frogged a portion several times last night until I finally started the second half over. It is now going so smoothly that I am glad I did.

Hi everybody!!!! Boy what a BUSY month! I'm sorry I haven't posted more on this thread. I've been checking it though to make sure my person got her package! Just got the second one mailed off and I really hope she likes it! I ended up getting everybody involved that was at this really cute little yarn shop to help me pick something out that was "just right".

I got my first package this weekend!!!! the card was so adorable! It had 2 skeins of really pretty pink yarn and some multi-colored yarn to go with it and some knitting needles!!!! Absolutely adore it! I think my pal is KRDUNCAN. If so I'm really sorry I haven't posted. I did answer a Spark mail I got but people haven't been getting my spark mail messages for some reason. Oh well. Whoever my pal is THANK YOU!

well unfortunately the person you had has not posted all month. so, there is no way of knowing. she hasnt answered any of my spmail either. so, we will assume that she received them.

and yes, my DH doesnt understand how or why i would drive a great distance to see some yarn, let alone how long i can spend there.

**note to group**
so, if you have not figured out who your pal is by July 1. post here and you pal will reveal themselves to you.

My Secret pal has been giving me clues in her cards. The card I meant was one to be sent at the end of the month to tell our pal who we are in case they haven't figured it out. I never did figure out one month. KIP was mine one month, but the other month I didnt' know who it was and she never told me.

I noticed the cards were signed SPSP. At one time I thought maybe it was someone that had me previously, but then thought that probably wouldn't have happened. I also noticed the yarn was hand dyed from a local artist, but I thought my first package was mailed from someplace different from the second package so that really threw me...or maybe I was confused and thinking about a package from last month. AT one time I thought it might be you KIP, but for some reason changed my mind. I was just totally confused after I started thinking about it! emoticon

I have loved everything I got and have been caught fondling the yarn by my hubby. when he caught me just rubbing away on it he shook his head and walked back out of the room. emoticon He just doesn't understand my fascination with yarn.

I am curious to find out if the person I have even liked her things. She has never posted that she received either package. I think half the fun is finding out if the person likes the things in the packages, as well as reading about what everyone gets, adn the projects they plan to do with the things.

The pictures of the felted purse should be coming soon...in the process fo felting it right now!

I think the clue for KR is that the yarn she received was hand-dyed by a local artist who lives near her secret pal. Also, she always signs her cards "Your SPSP!"

Thank you PAX234 so much. I really appreciate all your thoughts and prayers. It's been a difficult month but we are trying to get past all the heart ache. It has been especially difficult for my husband because he was really close to his grandmother. I think it would be hard on any to lose two family members in one month only two weeks apart.

But we are moving forward and it been really hard on the kids because it is the beginning of their summer vacation and everything has been postpone until who knows when. But they are really good kids they are tolerating it all well and been really compassionate towards my husband for kids ages 9 and 12.

Well on a good note I have done some many chores around the house going up and down the stairs and bending I did some exercising there.

Hi everyone,

Jenniffrm - I'm so sorry to hear about the sorrows your family is experiencing right now. Please know that your in my prayers right now.

We've had a lovely week in Barbados. As soon as I'm done checking my emails and signing up for next month's secret pal (hope I'm not too late) I will finish getting postcards written and sent out (including one to my secret pal!). We've been staying at Almond Beach Village which is an all inclusive resort here. I've walked the treadmill once since we've arrived (probably not enough to combat the bottomless glass of wine at dinner!) I've made significant progress on this year's summer sweater project after making a mistake on the lace pattern and rippingout 3 rows!

Today is the first day of significant rain and unfortunately the DH and kids are out on the ocean for a turtle feeding. Since I am a poor sailor (the family voted unanimously for me to remain behind - even before we knew it would rain). The good news is I'm not out there.

If all goes well we'll be home tomorrow or sunday at the latest. Then we're off again on Monday this time for Maine I think. So apologies to my Secret Pal - it doesn't look like we'll get to the post office until some time after July 7! Can't wait to see what goodies are awaiting me!

Everybody's stuff sounds wonderful! You must post pictures when you finish your projects!!!

Maybe we should send a card to identify ourselves to our person. KIP did this in May, but I had figured her out. I still have no idea who has been sending me things.

I got a package yesterday filled with wonderful yarn! Some beautiful light blue fingering weight that is going to be perfect for my next shawl project. Thank you secret pal! I love it! My son was so excited when we opened the package- he's picking out pattern for me to use to make him a shawl. He has been compaining that my daughter has all these pretty shawls and he wants one too- he didn't like any of the yarn in my stash, but immediately claimed the blue yarn for his shawl. There appears to be the perfect amount of it for a nice big shawl for him, so I guess it is fate! There was also some very pretty varigated cotton with a pattern for a washcloth on it- I've actually been looking at patterns for washclothes and wndering what they would be like. This yarn looks too nice for a washcloth, but I think I'll use the pattern with some of my yucky leftovers and see how they turn out. So thank you again secret pal- you totally made my day!

Well, I have had the worst month ever, first my husband grandfather passes about two weeks ago, then I get really sick and now my husband's grandmother passes on his father side. He is totally devasted to top everything off. I just don't know what to do.

Yes ther will be pictures when both rooms are completed. I am heading to work onthe room right now.

Sorry KRDuncan--seems like a little too much crafting for me. I'd never get anything done! I'm having problems just with my sewing box, and 2 boxes of yarn, and a box or 2 of material. My hubby complains I have too much junk now!!, but he doesn't see the rewards that it makes.
KDYorkie-be sure to check my sparkpage at my pics of my completed projects!

I agree that part of the fun is reading about what the others got and what they plan to do wit the yarn.

I am still working on the purse. I got a knifty knitter that make handles for purses...when finished it looks like an I-cord....I know...that is the easy way out, but when I say it I remembered having somethign similar to it, but with only one ecd to work on instead of 2 like the knifty knitter, and I just had to have it. Just a few more rows on th purse and I will be ready to felt.

I know KIP...I have been talking alot bout this purse, and should have it finished, but I have been cleaning, organizing and setting up 2 rooms. One will be where my piano, computer, scrapbooking suppplies, cross stitch supplies and jewelry making supplies are. The other will be for sewing. I will also store my knitting and crocheting suppplies in there, but will only pull out one project at a time. Did I tell you gals about these rooms already?!?!

I am off to go through some more stuff so I can get it put back into these rooms.

I am very sorry not to have been on lately - I have had a rough couple of weeks with illness. I hope I am over it all now and I did get my packages sent away - still have not received anything. I hope everyone else met their challenge and I am really looking forward to a productive July.

ok-time for some group maintenance.
i am seeing that several of us have not been post on mondays (which is fine as long as you post with in the week). also we have several that have not posted whether or not they have mailed their packages or received them. this makes it hard for the group. we want to know what you get-- that is the fun of it. also,it makes if very hard for me to keep track of who has received their packages and who i need to check up on. so, please be kind to us. thanks


Everlasting Peace-

I have no idea who my secret pal is...I am going to have to search more closely.

Maybe we should update our sparkpages and add some information and/or clues about ourselves to give people some hints. emoticon

emoticon emoticon emoticon secret pal!

I got another package from my secret pal...hand dyed Merino woll, a booklet about the Magic Loop that has sock patterns in it,some small frogs that squeek(my shiz chu wants them for toys), and a frog garden statue, which will fit right in since all my flower gardens have frog things in them!

Again...thank you.

Now I am going to have to get on sparkpages and try to figure out who you are....I haven't been doing that this month...what was I thinking?!?!?

I have been cooking alot healthier for the past few days and everyone is feeling much better here in my house. I just have to make sure I get those exercises in otherwise I am doing this all in vain.

I still have not received a package at all :(

Hi Everyone

I've lost the 1.5lbs that I put on last week. My second card was posted yesterday so it should be flying its way to America. I've had a bad hip but its feeling a bit better today so I will try and do some gentle exercise today.

Hope everyone is enjoying their vacations.

Just checking in- just maintaining for this week still. Not exactly the grand loss I was hoping for, but I'm not gaining so that's great! I haven't received my secret pal stuff yet... the suspense is killing me! I'm so excited! My pal hasn't seemed to have gotten her stuff either- it should have gotten there by now, so it should be there any minute. My second package should go out today or tomorrow.

Just realized that JENNIFFRM also has already sent out her second package - so maybe, she is my SP. What a dilemna.

Checking in this Monday morning, actually early afternoon for me. I just came in from the mailbox, where a package was waiting for me. I am going to guess that PAX234 is my secret pal - since she posted that she was mailing out a package on Friday.

I have been one fortunate knitter. My Secret Pal has, once again, sent me some beautiful yarn - she seems to know that I am itching to knit a pair of socks. And the colors of the yarn she has sent are perfect - I don't think I will be giving away the socks or the scarf (from the first package).

My food plan is going okay - although I ate nachos on Saturday night and am still paying for it - I eat so little salt any longer that when I do eat something salty, it adds to water retention for the next few days.

I got out and walked with my dh on Saturday - not a particularly long walk, but the weather has been so unseasonably cool that it felt good to be outside.

I am heading to the doctor this afternoon - mostly for my blood pressure.

Hope everyone has a great week.

Again, Thanks to my Secret Pal, who I am pretty sure is PAX234. I sure hope she is having a great time at the shore. emoticon

i will be mailing my 2nd package on monday.

i have taken the month off from weighing myself--as i was getting caught up in the numbers and failing to remember why i was here--a healthier lifestyle. i have been eating very well and tracking most of the days. my exercise has been off-- my migraines have been udderly horrible this month--unsure as to why. i havent been doing a lot of knitting either--as i wanted to spend my non-headache time with my children. so, my knitting bag is coming along-slowly and the blanket i have been trying to crochet for the last 4yrs is moving (i hope to have it finished for christmas).

so we have 8 days til the end of the month--lets make happy healthy choices.

keep the fight moving foward.

Everlasting Peace-
Kimberly

I sent my second package out already. So I hope that my secret pal enjoys it. I have noticed that a lot of the members have received their packages. I am still waiting for my first package still. I have noticed that my secret pal has received her package which I am excited for.

I mailed out my second package today. Going on vacation in the morning for a week to Acapulco! My mom and I are going to have the best time! I am sooooo taking my knitting with me!
You know, Kelly, if you have circular needles, you don't have to use DPN's to make I cord. You can just slide the yarn back and forth on the circs. Can't wait to see this bag you're so excited about!
Have a great week everyone!

My second package went out in the mail today. I've been running around getting ready for vacation - it's off the the sun, sea and sand for us (actually for the DH and kids. You'll find me in the shadiest spot possible with my books and knitting.)

Have no idea if we'll have an Internet connection there so it you don't hear from me I'm still thinking of everyone :) It's an all-inclusive resort so my goal for the next week is to not gain anything - HA HA

I'm getting my second package ready to mail out. I have the yarn, but am getting some other goodies to put in the package to send with it.

I have been enjoying reading aobut all the goodies everybody has been getting. It makes me want to go out and get the same kinds of yarn to try new things!

STill working on the purse, but getting ccloser to completion. I have been cleaning and organizing my craft room the past couple of day so haven't had much time to spend on knitting.

KRDUNCAN...no I am not on that team. I actaully am doing them for my mom. She asked for them in the past and I actually now got to them. That was the first thing I learned to do and I actually enjoy knitting more than crocheting because I feel I finish faster.

JENNIFFRM...are you on the crochet the pounds away team?

I am almost finished with the purse. Now I need to get some sixe 10 DP needles. The I-Cord for the handle calls for them..I only have small DP's that are used for socks. I guess when I head to Huntington, WV tomorrow I will check at JOANN's they have some knitting things. If not, I'll ahve to check online.

I did bid on some wool on ebay...hopefully I will get it and can make some more of these purses. I am looking forward to seeing the end result after it has been felted!

I am finishing up some doilies I have started in May and never got around to finish because my kids and their end of school year activities. I have the rest of the week and another full week of school left for my two older kids. I am almost done crochetting those doilies and want to start a baby blanket set for a friend of the family who is having a baby.

But I still have not gotten anything from my secret pal.

Yeah! My package arrived today, full of great sock yarn and wonderful smelling potions and candle. Too fun! Thank you SP... I now want to finish the socks-I-don't-love to free up my needles to start knitting with my NEW sock yarn.

This week has been a trial in terms of eating right. Too many end of school celebrations and stress about classes I am teaching this summer. My weight has stayed the same, which I guess is better than going up. Not much time to knit either, but by the end of June, I will be free, free, free... to exercise, cook healthy things, read, craft and even just be a sloth for a while. Can't wait!
