Secret Pal Swap

Any of my knitting friends who may be interested in a really fun swap, go to this site and sign up by Monday. The site will tell you that sign ups are closed on 6/15 but sign ups have been extended to this Monday, June 22. It sounds like a whole lotta fun!!

Dyeing yesterday resulted in overdyeing after some yukky results. Lesson learned...don't try to add a lighter contrasting color because the result isn't pretty. So there is some really dark navy and some really dark green drying now that were originally intended to be colors that looked great in my head just not so great in real life :-) Maybe I'll find some orange-y red and do a trio of Sock Summit colors as a special!

I ordered an electric yarn skeiner because I am so backed up on dyed yarn. Unfortunately the demand is higher than what they can keep up with so I have to wait to get it until the first week of July. I need more room to store all this yarn that is waiting to be skeined!

And an update on Katie, she's out of her crisis and doing pretty well. That first week and a half was so intense - I didn't think she was going to make it another week. But the pills the doc gave her for the nausea just needed time to kick in I guess because now she eats, and even asks me for more! She's drinking plenty and staying hydrated so I'm optimistic she's going to last longer than I originally thought and confident that she isn't suffering. She's even gained weight! She was down to 6 pounds 8 ounces and is up to 7 pounds as of yesterday! The vet gave her 3-6 months at diagnosis 2 1/2 weeks ago.
