secret stuff
Argh. It's tough when there's stuff going on (p.s. I almost typed "it's tuff when there's stuff...") and I can't blog about it.

I've been knitting like mad every night. As I've mentioned previously, I'm designing the sock for Robyn's Robyn's Nest June Sock Club Kit (that's a mouthful!) and seeing as how it's sold out twice, I'm trying very hard to have a sock that people will like.

I've finished designing the sock itself, and am in the process of typing up the pattern. I will then be knitting up a second sock following the pattern only, and choosing a different size than my first sample. This way I'm trying to test-knit my own pattern. The only downside to all this is that I can't show you progress photos or even the yarn itself. But trust me- the yarn is beautiful, and I hope the sock is good too. :)

Once the sock is done I will have to rush like mad to design and knit my Mary Maxim contest submissions, since they have to arrive by mail in Ontario no later than June 20th. In other words, I've got less than 1 month to design them, knit them and mail them off, plus allow time for shipping. But no pressure, right?

Can you believe I'd actually thought I could squeeze 2 dinosaurs into this schedule? *snort*

On a slightly unrelated note- I've just signed up for Secret Pal 12. I haven't done a secret pal exchange since they were at number 6 or so, so I'm looking forwards to this one.

Oh- and Pete Grimaldi of Skin MD Natural wants me to let you all know that the free samples (like the one I reviewed) are still available, so if you have a blog and want some free skincare to try out, head over to their website! (The links are in my last post).
