These are a few of my favorite things!
I got presents! I haven't posted about this yet - because my camera was acting up and I definitely needed photographic evidence of the greatness.
I came home last week from my travels and had two wonderful boxes waiting for me. One was from my One Skein Angel - Selkie - (not her real or even her blog name)
and it had all this goodness inside:
This soap smells amazing and it even has a cool Kokopelli on it!
I love Kokopelli - how did you know!!
It's kind of hard to see it in this picture - but he's there playing his little flute.
I play the flute - although it's been years since I picked it up! Kokopelli is also appropriate because he's all over the place in New Mexico where I'm traveling right now. Maybe it's a clue! Selkie - are you from the southwest?
I just love the sock yarn and the soaps and the card is too cute!
Thank you thank you - you are the best One Skein Angel ever!
I also got this awesome British knitting mag with a cool knitting case from Nicole - just because she's cool like that and thought I would enjoy it :) Thank you for being so sweet!
I just keep seeing cool things to make and Rowan yarns everywhere and ads for wonderful places in England. I may just need to take a trip to England after reading this!
I love how British mags always give away stuff with the magazine. Like an extra incentive to buy their mag. I have bought some in the past with free earrings, free makeup, free CDs - but this is the first one with free knitting swag!
And the final cool thing I got in the mail came yesterday - and it's from my August Project Spectrum swap pal - Dee.
I love it! She used paper and different textures and made this beauitful card. Thank you so much! I had the best time doing the Project Spectrum postcard swap. I wish I had known about it sooner- I only got to do 2 months. I hear there may be another one coming - so I'll just have to wait and see!
I have been busily working on my log cabin blanket too. I have until 2:00 on Saturday to get this baby finished. it measures about 20 inches right now and I need it to be at least 30 inches. It's taking forever to do a color now!
