Anyways.. I bought some gorgeous handspun yarn from J, beautiful greens, blue and purples plied with black. I'm currently knitting a Calorimetry with it. I can't wait for it to be cold, (did I just say that?! ME who HATES the cold and snow?!) so I can wear it. It's looking super spiffy so far. :D
I had forgotten to take my silk hankies that i had spun off the niddy noddy before I left for the weekend. Oh well. I set the twist (blocked it, whatever) when I came home sunday. I loooove it. I only got about 64 yds.. and I really want to keep this for myself. I just don't know what I can knit with 64 yds.. no pics yet.. there hasn't been good sunlight and the pics I took inside look awful. Trust me when I say that it's soft and shiny and pretty. :)
I've also been spinning up the black and green batt I purchased from stickyfingers and I think it's coming out nicely. I'm aiming for thin. And it's spinning up pretty darn fine. I'm just hoping I don't make a tangle mess of it when I try to ply it. I'm about halfway done with the batt so far (it was tiny, only about an ounce) and I think I'll be able to get all of it on the spindle. *crosses fingers*
And I've recieved another square for the Knit/Crochet Blanket Swap.. this one is from chibie elphie. So pretty!
And I've also recieved from superhooker for the Knit/Crochet Goodie Bag Swap.. still havent' had a chance to send yet.. I really need time to get to the PO. I adore everything. She really spoiled me.
Knitted beach bag from my wists, a cute mini journal/sketchbook, and two containers of body butter.
Three skeins of sock yarn, two sets of dpns, a cute metal tin to keep the dpns in, and a sheepie tape measure.
Sponge capsules that grow in water, a cute binder to keep patterns in, a beginners sock pattern, and Stephanie Pearl McPhee Casts Off!
AND I recieved from WYOKrista for the Heroes Swap. Another fabulous package. I'm trying to get all my projects done for monday's send date.
What's this? Breakfast?
Nope.. it's Heroes swag! ^^ Punch embroidered hat with heroes symbol, and a Hiro t shirt.
