2nd pair done!







Yep that's right. I finished the second pair one hour after the post office closed... I was bummed, i really wanted to get it in the mail but it will have to go out on Thursday morning.












I had fun knitting with this yarn, so colorful and cheery!

I am going to buy some for myself.

I love it now!









I think my knitting was a bit tighter than Wendy, the original assassin, my target, but I think it was the best i could do. If i went up a needle size it would have been off gauge. Either way I think they look great! I hope the target likes them... she doesn't have a blog or ravelry name listed so I'm unable to link to her.











I sent her a few other goodies like these stitch markers I made and some knitting note cards. Of course some chocolate... Dove, its my favorite! Mmmm chocolate... Also I remembered to send along the rest of the yarn...

which I forgot to do with my first target, oops, sorry Wendy! At least they fit and she doesn't need to alter them.


I hope my next SIP comes in a timely fashion so I could maybe get 3 pair under my belt?!! My fingers are crossed and I'm living in fear of my mail man, er-uh- mail woman......
