so much going on

Sorry, I know I've been a bad blogger, but things are crazy busy. I'm in Spain, teaching a course for Canadian students. We left last Sunday (although it seems like so much longer already) and will be here for another 2 weeks. I'm having a great time (and I think all my students are too) but not much time for knitting or blogging. (Or yogaing for that matter!)

Anywho, above is the seed stitch baby jacket that I made for my soon-to-be niece/nephew. I made the 6-9 month size so that it will be useful around Christmas time/early Spring, hopefully. I used Universal Yarn Classic Worsted Tapestry (wool/acrylic blend... aka machine washable and dryable!). The buttons are super cute, but sadly hard to see in the picture. They're little sheep (if you couldn't tell). Fortunately I finished it last Saturday and was visiting my family so I could gift it to my brother and sister-in-law before I left. Not pictured was another meepcraft baby stuffy (this one, to be exact). I love their stuff and it supports some good friends of mine, so buy meep!craft!!

In other knitting news, I got my Sock Swap Package mere days before I left for Spain! I got an amazing package, as you can see for yourself:

swap package #6
(Not pictured: delicious, delicious baked goods...)

I love everything about them and the socks fit perfectly:

swap socks #6

The pattern for the socks is apparently grace from Knitty Winter 2011. So lovely!

If you are interested in swapping, the sign ups are open (see the link above) for the next swap until June 1. I won't be participating this time because of all my travel, etc... but I know that I'll miss it!
