SP7 revelations, Snowflakes and Arrows

SP7, my very first round, is over. I still can't get over how much fun it was. It was like Christmas, except with less time pressure. Even better, I got to shop for another knitter, and have another knitter pick out wonderful things for me!

Here are my SPs:

Spoilee: the charming and talented Paula. She knits some fabulous socks, takes beautiful nature photos, and had the perseverence to reknit her Seamus THREE TIMES until she was happy with it!

Spoiler: the thoughtful and psychic Rainy. She is also a belly dancer and serenity fan, and did a fabulous job of making me feel special, encouraging me, and making me squeal like a 2nd grader at her own birthday party.

Strangely enough, I think I actually ran across Rainy's blog during SP7; I think I linked there from Atla's blog. Atla is a member of the, ahem, Tubey Knit-Along I'm running.

In other news, I've reached the snowflakes portion of the Snowflakes and Arrows vest:
