Good Mail Twice Over!

On Wednesday, after a looooong day at work, and a nice dinner our with Dru, and then straight on to a good knit-night at Lettuce Knit, I finally arrived home to find these!

2 packages
Not one, but two packages!

Of course, I dove right into them, but not before getting my camera! (Sorry for the poor photo quality, but winter and darkness are definitely happening around here.)

First up, there was a lovely prize package and cool card from Lola of Two Black Sheep — Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in a limited edition colourway (exclusive to Purl (Soho?), I believe).

I’m definitely thinking some “Candy Cane” socks are in my future!

Who doesn’t love a blog contest, especially when you win one! Thank You Lola!! I hope you’re happily cabling up a storm!

Speaking of blog contests, I’m having one of my own — check it out!! (How’s that for a promo?) I’ve already got about 15 comments, but I’m sure there are more of you just waiting to come out of the woodworks! The more comments I get, the more yarn I’ll send out, and you have until next Friday to do it!

Next up, my final package from Secret Pal 11… Sinfully decadent Fleece Artist 4-ply Cashmere!

No photo could do this luscious yarn justice!

She apologized for choosing quality over quantity, silly thing! I certainly have no complaints*! Now I just have to stop cuddling this beautiful, soft skein in perfect colours long enough to figure out if I’ll knit the included cloche pattern or something else from it. Thank you so much Caroline!! You were an awesome Secret Pal!

*Dru did though — “Aren’t these packages supposed to come with chocolate?”

  1. Yay! I can finally post a comment under my real name. I’m glad you enjoyed the gift. I know I had a great time spoiling you!!!

  2. Oh I’m so jealous of your newest stash enhancements! And I’m quite curious to see if that Lorna’s Laces stripes. (Ok, who am I kidding? I’m going to go find buy some candy cane sock yarn right this minute!) :)

  3. I’m so happy that you got the package. Two Black Sheep have had the worst luck with the Post Office these days. Hope you can make some warm socks with it…
