Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

First I want to thank all of you guys for your kind comments and your tears of JOY! It meant alot to me that everyone was just as excited as me!
I have a lot of ground to cover here so bare with me! Here is my first official "PAnta" and I love it! too bad I had to give it away ;( I have another in the works now!

It is made of Noro Silver thaw... I used about 100 yds and sz 5 needles to make it... you can find the KAL in the side bar.
Here is Boogie, he should have been done last night but I feel asleep! darn it all!

I got A birthday gift already from my friend Jenn! Sock Yarn Porn Galore! Cherry Tree Hill African Grey, magic stipes, and more! She gave me all this plus some red cotton ease that is not shown.

I was reading Sarah's Blog the other day and she talked about making a Tit Bit for a friend... I said that I wanted to make myself one to try and she made it for me! Of course I will not model it for you but here it is, pretty in pink! She also sent some little gifties, and a cute butterfly button....The chocolate didn't last long enough to be photographed :)

Something wonderful has happened to Chris...It's a go for him to donate bone marrow! There is a man somewhere in Europe with lukemia that needs a marrow transplant. I really hope Chris's marrow can save his life! Chris goes in for his physical the 8 th of Feb... and then March 12th and 13th is the extraction! I am very excited!
Check out Wool Windings for a contest! If you make a baby hat and booties and send them to The Preemie Project you can win a prize, How awesome is that? You get to help a family and win something too!
I know there was more I was suppose to say, but I think my brain is fried!
Check out Purls of Hope... I am getting a care package together right now!.....

The button was to use as a nipple if you didn't like the i-cord one!!!!

Glad it works for you.

Nice yarn from your friend! I am envious.

Your Panta is BEAUTIFUL!! I love the color transitions in that Noro! Your sister is going to love it. Great progress on Boogie, too! And holy crow, what a birthday gift!! I'm drooling over all your beautiful new sock yarn. That's so wonderful about Chris donating bone marrow!!! It's so amazing that you can be a match for someone halfway around the world and help to save their life. What an incredible feeling that must be! Take care! :-)

I forgot I'm taking Sheryl out for her birthday on Friday (oops!). I'd love to get together any other day to celebrate with my other February B-day friend. Just let me know.

The noro panta is so pretty with all the color changes, I've never seen that line of Noro yarn!

The sock yarn is all gorgeous, can't wait to see what you're going to knit up with it!

Take care! =)

I'm starting to see a lot of people knitting Panta. I'll keep that one in mind for the future.

You hit the jackpot with that sock yarn!
