I love coming back from vacation and getting that big tote of mail from the US Postal Service. Before we left I used my Loopy Ewe GC from my SP10 Pal. (Of course, I added a little to get the free shipping.) The first box on the top of my pile was this:
That is some of the Louet Gems in Carribean Blue and some Interlacements Tiny Toes. The Louet is destined for one of Cookie's delicious patterns.
Next was a package from Spritely Goods, Stephanie has been SO nice. She has posted pictures of my socks on her blog and her store gallery!!
This is a little blurry, but after hearing Violet talk about this colorway (Sherwood) last week, well, I snapped it up (Shh - don't tell Violet).
These two tissue wrapped skeins are some more from Stephanie at Spritely Goods. I am keeping one and gifting the other to my SP10 Pal. I haven't decided which one yet, so they are both under wraps.
Now for the Lisa Souza - back at the beginning of Sock Madness someone posted a pic of socks in this colorway and I decided I MUST have some in Hardtwist. Well Lisa shipped this the day before we left on vacation - so I got to open that package too! I must say, I am really starting to feel better now!
The bad news is that my husband is coming down with this Monkey Pox hideousness, and I don't know about your better halves, but mine is not a stoic.
Oh! And I'm so excited I get to start some test knitting this week...I don't even know if I'm allowed to say WHO it's for - I'll see if I can show you the yarncake before I start. The Zebra's are almost finished - they look like something Pippi Longstocking would wear.
Yum-yum on the Gems in beautiful blue. You will make something fabulous of this. Can't wait to see.
