Mittens and a surprise box (Happy Thanksgiving)

Today I decided to make Barbie a pair of mittens found some Moda Dea Tweedle Dee yarn in my stash. I think they came out quite nicely!
So sitting here filling out applications and feeling a bit sorry for myself. (I shouldn't I am blessed with wonderful friends and a roof over my head) Times are tough for all right now, not enough jobs to go around and struggling to keep ends met. Any way the post lady came and I got this wonderful surprise box.
(I do have some just wonderful friends who spoil me) One of my dearest friends Jill in Brooklyn sent me this box with the softest fiber and a spindle and some very soft yarn. Thanks Jill you made my day!!!! I am thankful for my God, My faith, My dear husband and all my children and my sisters and brother, My in laws who treat me like I am part of the family and all the rest of my husbands family, my country, All of my dear Friends, a roof over my head and all the convinces of living in this century!!!

Barbie's socks I knitted and some yarn I dyed

Somehow Barbie's feet grew by bounds and leaps and I didn't have the funds to get her more at that point. So I decided to knit her some. These are the results! We have gotten her more store socks but I think I will be knitting socks for a while now as she loves the handknit ones. Also I got a sweater from Good Will yesterday it was 100% lambs wool and a light muted blue so I unraveled it and dyed it this is the result of one skien I ened up with 4 skiens.
