One thing I've admired about the knit bloggers is their camaraderie. They seem to be a close knit (no pun intended), enthusiastic, and energetic group who love to get their swap on. Their enthusiasm is so infectious that I broke down and joined the Dye-O-Rama swap last month. Each member was to dye sock weight yarn, and send it to their pal. I dyed my yarn back in early May, but didn't end up mailing it until last week. Here it is all skeined up:
Louet Gems Pearl

and a close up
My pal should have received it yesterday, but just in case she didn't I won't list her blog to maintain secrecy in case she wanders over her (far fetched as that may be). I hope she likes it!

I feel obligated to post several warnings/watches (kind of like the weather ones).

Warning #1: Lily season has begun. A strong chance exists that on any day there will be multiple closeups of lilies appearing here. I've held off so far in showing the Lollipop lilies.

Warning (more like a watch)#2: My very talented younger sister made a quilt last week. She is such a good seamstress that when I went to my senior prom I wore with pride a dress that she made at age 13 (from a Gunne Sax pattern). She takes killer photographs, and makes awesome stained glass. I'm sure it won't be long before she conquers quilting completely. I'll try to get a photo of her first quilt in a few weeks and post it. Go Karin!

Why have you held off on the lily photos? I'd love to see some!
