I was so excited when I got home from work yesterday to see this!!!!
A package from my Flip Flop Swap pal Debby!
She got me so much cool stuff - flowerly flip flops - because she knows I like to garden, lip gloss, beads (yeah!) and the most beautiful yarn and a pattern to make a scarf from it. She knows me too well! I love green and everything in the package coordinated so well!
Check out these gorgeous beads:
And I'm still drooling over this yarn - so yummy
Just look at the colors in here...
I am very happy - thank you so much Debby - you made my day!
This past weekend - I finished my second pair of socks! They are Thuja from Knitty.com. I used knit picks Memories in RedWood Forest. I am very happy with how they came out. Here's a pic...
In other knitting news - I took a hint from Wendy on this idea - to use my sock yarn scraps on a log cabin blanket. I used the remaining yarn from these socks, some Koigu I had left over, and also some of the remnants of the Blue Heron yarn from my little bag. I think this will be a nice way to remember my projects.
Now that my socks are done - I am starting on my Noni bag. I can't wait to see how this turns out. I started last night and so far I love the results. Here's the yarn and the pattern I'm doing...
