okay......i have the BEST sp3 in the world!!! i'm not kidding!! i just got another package from her and not only has she gone over the top, she has sent me dreaming things that are "so me" without me being a very good blogger and giving her continual info about me.
first, i want to say: thanks, thanks, thanks!!!!!!!!! then i want to say: sorry, sorry, sorry!!!
want to hear about all the goodies my great sp3, danielle from oregon sent ?
the package was soooooooo heavy!! (danielle, did you hear my shouts of delight across the miles?)
everything was wrapped so cute with a little note of her thoughts attatched to each item. first there were 3 balls of yummy, cotton ball soft, baby alpaca. in baby blue!!!! my theme color this year!! and my sp didn't even know, since my last post, that my DH bought me baby blue uggs!!! wow!!!!!! so i know what the blue alpaca is going to become, a fluffy scarf to match.
next, 3 balls of some creamy white, jo sharp, dk wool. (ps D the movie is "somethings gotta give) i've never knit with jo sharp before, but i've fondled it many times and i just bought one of her books a few months ago. (D how did you know?) the book is called Gathering and i think i may make one of the cable "jenny hats" , that will only take a little over one ball, and then maybe some matching, wrist warmers with the leftovers, fabulous!!!
two skeins of "socks that rock" yarn. i've never heard of this yarn, but i'm in love! i think it's from blue moon fiber arts. the colorway is farmhouse. i have these dreams of one day visiting Paris and so my sp said in her note that it reminded her of a beautiful paris sky. yes. so this yarn has to be knit into the clapotis on knitty.com. while i'm knitting it i will pretend to be that cute girl in the picture sitting at the paris cafe.
oh, i'm not done yet. three knitting books. yes, i did say three!!! and can you believe i don't have any of them!!!! (and my book collection is deep and wide). the vogue knitting will be a wonderful and helpful resource. lilly chin's book is something i looked at many times, but have never taken home. the the monkey suits book will give me great ideas for my new little "monkey" that i now have to knit for, my grandson. i look forward to spending some time looking thru these great books.
also, thanks for the "sock" stitch holders. i've had some here and there but i think my cats think they are toys and so they dissapear. the foot soak looks yummy too.
whew......okay.........i'm done!!!!!!! THANKS is not enough.
i look forward to my christmas break knitting projects. which will be the sp projects just mentioned. right now i'm finishing up christmas gifts and hadn' thought of what i would do for me after that. now i know. and all are projects that i will wear this season, so i'm itching to get started. i'll keep you posted.
thanks again, and my new years resolution is to begin to blog again!!!!
