FO Friday!

I have two FOs to share this week!

I finished my Conference Socks on Wednesday evening. Glad to have another old WIP off the needles at last! Too bad it's way too hot to wear them!

I also finished another project. I have been participating in Camp Loopy with The Loopy Ewe, and I finished my first camp project. The pattern is To Infinity and Beyond by Joji Locatelli, and the yarn is Malabrigo Sock in the Zarzamora colorway.

Even though it was hot, I still wanted to model it for a picture. TMG played photographer for me.

What have YOU finished this week?

WIP Wednesday

Just one WIP to share this week, because the other project I've been working on recently is no longer a WIP :)

I've been working some more on my Conference Socks that I started back in April. This week I finished the gusset on the second sock and got into the foot. It's easy going from here on out, so I hope to have them finished soon.

I even put in a little work on them at the Phillies Game last week:

I didn't know that TMG was taking a photo, or I would have smiled!

Mother Bear Monday!

I'm so excited today because I had my very first bear sighting in the photo gallery for the Mother Bear Project. The bear I knit back at Christmas time has been paired with its child, and my heart is so full I felt that it would burst if I didn't share!

If you haven't made a bear for Mother Bear Project yet, I encourage you to get started! It is a great way to use up leftover yarn and bless a child. A true win-win!

Just a reminder that tomorrow is the last day to enter the Lo-Lo Love Giveaway! Get your entries in!

Tuesday Reviews-Day: LoLo Redux

Game-Changer. Day-Saver. Lo-Lo.

A few months ago I reviewed a fabulous product from Bar Maids: The Lo-Lo Love Sampler. I praised its wonderful qualities: yummy scents, non-greasy feel, portable size... this product has it all. It's perfect for my skin in the winter time. When the warm weather started, I admit, I put it aside. That is, until this weekend.

I went camping in the mountains this past weekend and encountered my mortal enemy: the mosquito. I searched desperately through my travel bag for anti-itch cream, lotion, ointment, anything to calm my itchy skin. I begged my fellow campers, to no avail. Desperate, I pulled out my Lo-Lo Love Pink Grapefruit sample and rubbed it on the bite. The result seemed like a miracle: within moments, the itching stopped, my skin was soothed, and I didn't even think about the bite again for hours.

So now, here I am, back again to sing the praises of Lo-Lo! Even better, the generous folks at Bar Maids have provided a coupon code for a lucky reader to win a Lo Lo Love Sampler pack of your own!

To enter: leave a comment on this entry! Get a bonus entry if you subscribe via email using the box in the upper-right corner of the blog. Just come back and leave another comment saying that you subscribed. Please make sure to leave some form of contact information (email, Ravelry ID, etc.) in your comment so that I can contact you if you win. But wait! It gets better! If we get 100 entries, I will add a second coupon code to the mix - double the chance to win! Tell your friends, share on your blog, it's a win-win!

I will draw the winner next Tuesday, June 18th, at 10:00am ET and post the winner(s) on Wednesday, June 19th. Please note that the coupon code is valid for a Lo-Lo Love Sampler pack and shipping up to $1.80 (which should cover most places in the continental US). Shipping charges above that amount are the responsibility of the winner(s).
