Ice Cream Swap

Yay, I got an awesome package from my ice cream swap pal. This is how it works. I just this swap, and I told my pal what my favorite ice cream is, then she prepared this package with my favorite favor as the theme. My favorite ice cream is red bean, so I got some red, pink yarns. I love the wrapping paper and the fingerless mittens that my pal knitted for me. The most awesome thing in the package is the red bean candy, I just kept eating it after I opened the package. It tastes just like the red bean ice cream, yummmmm.

Last week, I didn't knit much, but I have cooked and baked. I have made pound cake, and used the strawberry leftover to make strawberry shortcake. It's ok...

I have knitted my first color work project. The Herring socks. Well, it wasn't a successful project, it's way too tight. Maybe it's because the way I carried and switched the yarns is not corrected. So, I frogged it...

Next project, Spring Forward socks. This is the first them I knit 2 socks at the same time. It seems fun...

Happy July 4th!!!
