Wee Tiny Sock....Big Big Thanks

First off...I have to say a HUGE THANK YOU!! to everyone who sent me Happy Birthday wishes. I have never had so many b'day greetings in my entire life. You all have really made my birthday something special.

Second...Another HUGE THANK YOU!! to all the great people who have joined our new dishcloth KAL group. In just 10 days we have reached 84 members. I can't believe how many great friends and new friends have joined us and we're growing every day. I have to admit that I was a little worried about starting the group....not knowing if anyone would want to join and feeling really lonely with just me, Froggie and Shirl. ;P The response has been just overwhelming and the wonderful comments and words of encouragement have been absolutely awesome. We've still got room for plenty more....it's such a friendly group that's developing there. We started our first KAL today too....*sigh* What more could a girl ask for?


Now on the the Wee Tiny Sock Swap. This was my practice sock. I used Lion Brand Magic Stripes. I wasn't sure if it would stripe on such a tiny thing but it did. I'll post a photo of my swap sock when my partner receives it. It's on it's way!

Just sharing a little more spring for all you still snow bound friends. Can you believe we had to fire up the fireplace yesterday!? It was so cold here. Not so bad today. This weather is crazy.

Did anyone participate in the Earth hour on March 29? We did here...kids were not thrilled. lol
After we got out some candles they seemed to perk up a bit. I spent most of the hour explaining "WHY are we turning all the lights off?:....how it would help even if "everybody else isn't doing it"....ahh...quality family discussion time. lol They would never admit it but I think the kids actually ended up enjoying it. Thanks, Isabelle for sending me the link to sign up.

Hugs!
*feeling really special today*

I would have turned out the lights but I missed the memo until a day too late. Those mini socks are too cute.

I'm glad you had so many well wishes to brighten your day yesterday!

I'm just dying with jealousy over all these spring photos.

Very cute little tiny sock :) It really striped well!!

Didn't know about earth hour til after the fact. Usually it takes a black out for us to be all in the dark, but sometimes it is a nice feeling :) Gets you to low down a bit!

I love your tiny sock! And I'm loving the dishcloth KAL!

Yes, we turned out the lights which meant that I had to put my crocheting down. We were watching a movie, so dh said it was like being at the movies. My ydd also had the lights out at her place.

You've been tagged!

Hrmm.. I'll have to look a little more into this group of yours, Those socks are too cute!! Our weather here was pretty crazy there for awhile too... going to bed with it too hot and waking up freezing. Hate that.
