Well, it's been a heck of a week - and I promised you all that I would show you what I got this week from my SP - she is so awesome. I opened the box and you'll notice that the tissue paper and the paper crinkles match! She had a lovely note inside - and inside I began unwrapping and found some wonderful items!
I found not 1 but 3 skeins of Nature's Spun - in AWESOME colors! I love how this felts and it knits up beautifully. I have some plans for this yarn - I am thinking about knitting some socks for the "Sock-A-Month 2" KAL I have joined. Can you see them? Purple socks with green cuffs, heels, and toes? Umhmm, I can see them! Next was some really nice novelty yarn - good for my stash, my pal told me - and I am happy to say that this yarn fits in beautifully. One of the gals at my LYS was knitting a very gorgeous scarf - I am thinking that gorgeous lace weight yarn she sent me earlier and the Trendsetter Eyelash will be a nice take on the scarf my friend is doing. She is knitting hers out of a novelty yarn and Kidsilk Haze - 6 rows of the novelty yarn, then knit with the scarf body color, adding rows of the novelty yarn sporadically in the scarf and ending with 6 rows and bind off. I shall keep you all posted. Next, was some awesome hand creams, in yummy fragrances! They will keep my hands, heels and elbows soft as summer winds down! Now, the absolute BEST part was Knitting Rules - AUTOGRAPHED by the Harlot. MY PAL is amazing! I am in possession of a personalized autographed copy! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Pal - your gifts brought tears of joy to my eyes. In a week of chaos, your gifts brought me such joy. Thank you!
Now, here are those socks I knit for daughter #2 - They are the lace socks from the Spring IK. What a great knit - and I had such fun knitting them. I am working on another pair for my daughters friend! If you have not cast on these socks - there is still warm weather as August is just beginning! You can count them in the "Sock-A-Month 2" KAL also!
Hope you are all having a great week!
