Want to see my new KIP Bags?

I so forgot to tell you this but now I am so that's a good thing right? I know!! When I went to pay for the prize kip bag I couldn't help but get this little fireworks bag I've been drooling over. It is exactly the PERFECT bag for my sock project. Well the owner of Ruddawg is Brenda, she is such a sweetie. See the mini bag there next to my sock bag? She sent it to me as a surprise. WHen I thanked her for it and expressed my surprise she sent back a simpe little message.
It said: "Happy Anniversary!" Isn't that the nicest thing??? Yes it so is. Thank you Brenda. Beautiful, useful pretties makes me happy...:)

And just to remind you all of the pretty bag that is the prize for my Valentine Commet contest, I am showing you the photo of it once again. NOw remember , as long as you comment on any of the blogs that has a photo of the bag below, you are entered in the contest which I will announce the winner I think on Feb 15!! we shall see.

Does anyone know what this is??? can you tell??

Hey I'm just wondering if this is recognizable for what it really is or is it a mystery to you all?

Don't cha think if you have a new camera

That you should take some photos of the kids and dog and send them to me??? lol, Yep I'm talking to you Tina Bo Bina (my youngest daughter). I know you read my blog all the time so I'm letting you know that I'd like to have some new photos to share on here. You and Dade can even be in them, I don't care just as long as I get some Mia Bella and Coley pics.

So I just wound up the skein of yarn that Joy Blum sent me in my groups swap. And I think I've decided on doing these socks with it.

Perfect sock for Valentines Day! Right? Yeah I know.

Went to the dentist today wearing these new earrings and pin:

The ladies LOVED them. awwwwwwwww:

wool socks again.... And I've won twice this week!!

I could have had a complete pair of socks done by now but my progress has come to a screeching halt. What happened?? Oh well I tried this sock on and it leg part is way too long and baggy for me. So instead of frogging it, I just tossed it into my kip (knit in progress) bag. that's the purple in the top left corner of photo.
I haven't knit a stitch in 2 days. So now you can see a frogging friday post on here come Friday!

But good news is I've won a contest twice this week!! I know!!!! Crazy huh?
First I won on the Who Duknit yahoo group. I chose a skein of yarn from Vigdis in Norway in rust and green. And yesterday I won for posting about the Finish or Frog Friday. I won 2 skeins of Marabella cashmere yarn in a dark brown color. whooohoooo Cashmere yarn. This will be the most expensive yarn I've ever ran thru my fingers. yummy soft soft

Better Photo of Prize Bag

Here is a brief description of the bags that ruddawg makes from ruddawg herself!!:
KIP Bags are great for knitters/crocheters on the go. They have pockets inside to keep needed items handy and close with two satin cords. Just pull on the cords and the bags stay closed. A KIP bag is sturdy, well made and best of all, machine washable and dry able. The designs on KIPs range from Retro to Goth, so there's one to fit just about any personality.
