Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

Dragon Swap and finished socks

JudyS from Stitch Along With Me was my swap buddy for a Dragon themed swap hosted by KathyB at
Irisheyesknitters: My Yarn Garden.  And what wonderful goodies I received.

A fingerless mitt pattern, Dragon Scales; some luscious Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in my favorite colors; a bar of handcrafted soap with essentials oils and botanicals (for dry, dragon skin); a box of tea; a washcloth; and the cutest dragon ever!  You push on his back and fire (pretend) shoots out his mouth and his wings fly up!  Cute!!  Also she sent a book.  We had been talking about how much we like reading mysteries so JudyS sent one by Mary Daheim, a local author to her.  And the setting of the book is a fictional place based on a real place not far from her.  I can't wait to read it.  Thank you JudyS for a wonderful package.  And a big thank you to KathyB for another great swap!

And now for the first finished socks of 2012
(and it's not even the end of January yet!  I might be able to get a pair done a month, lol)
