Sockapalooza 4, Bonnie B-day and Purty

I just signed up for Sockapalooza 4!

It reminds me of those chain mail letters that I used to get from friends. I always considered participating in those things and thought about how much fun it would be to have my mailbox fill up with envelopes stuffed with dollar bills or brand new underwear (right Jamie?!). All I needed to do was just send a dollar or a pair of underwear to the first five people on the list and a mailbox full of underwear and money could be all mine! Yeah, right. Or, as every character on Grey's Anatomy would put it, "Seriously."

Well, I have greater faith in this exchange than the chain mail letters of decades past. In this exchange, I will get a pal and knit him/her a pair of socks while someone else is doing the same for me. We all release our socks (over 850 participants thus far! 1700 socks!) into the world (via the postal system) on the same day and they travel to their new owners. I have images of sock packages criss-crossing the world on their way to surprise knitters. That sounds like good stuff to me.

On another note, It was Bonnie's birthday yesterday and since she has newly pierced ears, what better gift to give her than handmade earrings.
Happy Birthday Bonnie!

Lastly, a little something purty from my house for your Friday.

My next post will be about the alpaca field trip. I hope it'll be sunny so I can get some decent pictures of all the fibery goodness. I am struggling to get to know my new digital camera. It seems to be picky about lighting.
