Last Friday I was so lucky to get this great package in them mail from Jennifer T. She had me in the FCS3. We were having some problems with her emails landing in my junk mail folder but she still managed to do some detective work and find all sort of great goodies for me!This pencil roving is such pretty shades of orange (one of my fave. colors) and I can't wait to try it out. I had been wanting to give pencil roving a try. I also love the Aracunia and the Koigu, also a first, I would love some suggestions for the Koigu, I may have to peruse my One Skein Wonders book.
I swear, it was as if Jennifer was in my head. I have been dying to get a yarn themed stamp and also wanting to try this soak since I saw it in Buena Vista. The buttons are super cute too.
I love these note cards, so versatile. Also some great scrapbooking swag as well.

Oooh pretty beads, not sure if I will make some jewelry or stitch markers. Perhaps both.
And she definitely must of read my wine posts. Isn't this so pretty? Thank you so much Jennifer, you did awesome!
Also last week I made a trip to get Maddie some new Converse at DSW. Well I was quite fortunate to see that they were giving away a free tote with purchase. Not a bad bag for free, and a very useful size too. I had to forward the email from them to dh to ensure him that indeed I did not purchase another bag. I'm trying to be really good so I get the Atenti weekender I am coveting for Mother's Day. So good in fact that I passed on the tdf gorgeous black patent leather mary jane peep toe pumps by Ellen Tracy. I saved my money for the trip we made Sunday to Colorful Yarns. There I purchased some gorgeous Hand Maiden Sea Silk and the Interweave Holiday issue.
I just cast on this pattern "Socks for Veronik" out of the Interweave Holiday issue.

I am using the Panda silk I recently purchased. Not sure if I stitch pattern will show in the variegated, but we will see.

Knit on!

Wow great stuff. I love that sock pattern. If you add a skein of Koigu with your new one skein you can make a Chevron Scarf. I have lots of Koigu you can comelook at. (-:
