Check out all the goodies~~~
First of all, I received not one, but TWO hand made dishcloths. Totally different, and both lots of fun. I especially love that checkerboard pattern on the cream one with colored flecks.
Then, there were so many other goodies that I couldn't believe my eyes! Delicious candy in both milk and white chocolate, three flavors of coffee, a lavender candle in a tin, a HUGE bottle of vanilla hand soap as well as three shower gels from Bath and Body Works, sock shaped point protectors for my knitting needles, a summery skein of Peaches and Cream yarn, and a dishcloth pattern.
It's very obvious that Debbie, my spoiler, hand picked these items just for me. They fit so well with what I like and what I am working on. All I can say is, "WOW"!!!
Debbie from Kansas City, I can't THANK YOU enough!!
You have made my first dishcloth exchange a very special one!
Went to Fargo with hubby today, and while he was taking care of business, I went to my LYS for the afternoon. Didn't buy much yarn. Just two skeins of sock yarn that I plan to add to another one I already have and make a shawl. I want to try the Forest Canopy pattern, but I want mine bigger so I can really wrap up in it. I saw some Colinette sock yarn online that I really wanted, but the amount of yarn I need would have cost me a fortune. I decided that on-sale-sock-yarn would work almost as well, and for less than half the cost.
Also got some size 6 dpn's so I can make Mandy's Candy Bag. It's so cute, and looks like such fun to make -- I can't wait to try it.
Speaking of making things, tomorrow is the day I said I'd cast on my socks for the Let's Learn Socks KAL. If you'd like to join us, it's not too late! The more, the merrier!!
