{More Presents??}

The Yarny kind!  I tell ya, the people who love me really know what I love!  This box came from Eat.Sleep.Knit care of Jenny who blogs at Jenny's Blog on Knitting. 

 Elizabeth Bennet from Yarn Love in colourway Shiny Penny.  ohmygoodness I LOVE!  It's merino and bamboo. So lovely!

Super Squish Sock from Fiberphile.  So incredibly soft and squishy!  This one is 100% superwash Merino, but it's sayin' hat or shawl or something ot me.  Too soft to wear in my feet I think!

I love them both so so much! I have no real ideas what I'll make with them yet, but I'm looking forward to doing some searching!

In other knitting related news, the knitting on my striped cardigan is done.  I've ordered buttons and I still need to buy grosgrain ribbon for the inside of the button band. The buttons are 1.25 inches so I figure I'll need the stabalizer for sure.  Oh and blocking. Pssht.   I'm wearing it now even without buttons. tee hee! I'll make sure to post pics soon.

One more week of school! YAY! (until next fall. lol)


  1. Happy birthday!!! :D The yarn looks beautiful!

    The school countdown is on! I hope the last week goes quickly and well.

  4. What a lovely package. I especially love that yellow!

  5. We are both Taurus! Yeah! My mom, also a Taurus, was a knitter and I gave away so much of her yarn. Too bad I didn't know you back in the day. I would've given them to you :)
