Box Topapalooza

Have you ever seen those little "Box Tops for Education" graphics on the boxes (and bags) of some grocery store products? If you cut them out and turn them in to a school that collects them, they turn into money for the school. Each box top is worth 10 cents. That doesn't sound like much, but it all adds up and free money-- even in small amounts--is still free money. So check your boxes and cut out and save any of the Box Tops that you see. And if helping out schools isn't enough, you can even win a prize. Trek (of Trek Casts On) is running a contest between now and August. If you either send her your collection of Box Tops or send her a photo of the box tops you have collected for your local school, she will enter your name in a drawing for a gift certificate to Amazon.com. I know I could use some extra cash to spend on knitting books, couldn't you?

Wedding Stockings!

My wedding stockings are finished!!! I really enjoyed working on them and am so happy with how they turned out, so please ignore the many little mistakes :) The pattern is "Silk Stockings" from the book Romantic Hand Knits and the yarn is Tinsel Toes. I will be wearing them under my wedding dress come July. Its so exciting to finally have one of my many wedding knitting projects completely finished!
