The highly awaited package was from Ruth who is simply AWESOME. Thanks so much Ruth, ~HUGS~. I love absolutely everything you've sent to me.
I just can't wait to get started on my socks now that, thanks to Ruth, I'm completely armed with everything I could possibly need.
Anyways, I'll shut up now and you can see for yourself why I'm so ecstatic.
Mr. Box, who brought all my goodies to me, safe and sound =)
The Book Family who are raring to teach me the art of sock knitting and help me keep track of everything
The one on the left is shaped like a sock. It's got loads of fun patterns that I'm just dying to try out. The pamphlet is full of techniques and lastly the Journal...oh I LOVE it! It's too precious to even touch, I can't bring myself to write in it, I just want to put it in its own pedestal and just..well...admire it =)
Three amazing shades, all waiting to be knitted up.
This is a closeup of the Regia in maroonish brown. Perfect for guy's socks!
Claudia Handpainted in Sea Dreams – isn’t she so pretty?
Claudia Handpainted in Deep Blue – this is amazing, if there is an Ocean in Heaven, these are the colours the water would take. I just love the colorway, it’s all my fave shades of blue rolled into one! Ruth, how did you know?
I completely flipped out when I saw the Claudia's Handpainted skeins. Who would have thought that I, ME, would EVER get a skein that gorgeous yarn. The best I could do before this was drool at the gorgeous colorways floating around on the internet. And...and...n.n.now look...I actually have not one, but THREE skeins!
The whole loot that made my day =)
I wasn't able to take closeups of the needles but you can see two sets of dpns there in the EXACT sizes I was looking for! Thanks a bunch Ruth. Now I can attempt those gorgeous footies she's knitted. Won't be nowhere near as nice as hers though! I'm a newbie.
I also received a skein of Noro from Carine who visited Malaysia and most of us knitters here got the chance to meet up with her. Thanks Carine! This is my first skein of Noro.
Hmm...Noro oh Noro, you shall remain as Noro. What should I do with you eh?
Sigh...I'm giddy with happiness =) thanks to the wonderful friends I have made through this oh-so-addictive hobby and the internet of course. Thanks so much you guys!
Well I think that is all for this super happy post. Enjoy the week everybody! Lots of good vibes for everyone from me.
