the mailman loves me
because I've been getting a ton of packages lately that I want to share! I didn't get to go to MSW this weekend, but I don't really feel like I missed out on anything yarn wise (of course I stil want to meet all my fave bloggers). instead, we spent our saturday hanging out in center city, eating tons of food and enjoying the gorgeous day. a little knitting was done, but not much. (hence this post, natch)
first up, my sockpal socks! I'll update with a pic of me wearing them, but I can tell you that they feel super soft and fit perfectly. my pal was kim of obsessive compulsive knitter, and I think she did a great job figuring me out. I forgot that I was pretty picky with my wishes (duh) and she took it in stride. she almost made me socks with str in ruby slippers, on the same day I posted about starting the badcaul socks. guess what, she didn't love str either. she also sent me some coffee beans that I already threw in the grinder and enjoyed....yum! thanks kim!! I wanted to email you or leave you a comment to thank you, but I don't have your email and your blog doesn't allow comments. I hope you're reading this!
on the same day I received this super cute cherry necklace that was the inspiration for my monday giveaways. dacia created such a cute package for me and I really can't wait to make up a cute postcard for her. I hope mine is up to snuff though, she's so talented check out the cards she made.
my buddy leah got me some of dani's sock yarn in gryffindor stripes for my birthday. I've never used dani's yarn, so it'll be fun to finally try it out. thanks leah!! actually, I can't wait to knit these up into knee highs so I can be a dork and wear them to the next movie (in umm 2007, I love no pressure knitting).
more sock yarn, this time from marie! I've been wanting to try some of her sock yarn, but it sells out so fast that I never had the chance. I finally put in a custom order in the hawaii joy colorway (notice, no pink!) and guess what. the yarn kicks as much ass as everyone claims. it's unlike any other sock yarn I've used, it's really soft and the colors are gorgeous. she may have an update this week, so I'd be on the lookout for that. I'm already planning my next order with some custom colors.
