Here is a close up of the cloth, soap - which is Candy Apple from Sharon's Soaps 'N Stuff and the yarn I received, which I LOVE - Classic Elite Yarns "Flash" in a lovely two tone twist of sage green. Thank you Cheryl! I love everything!!
On to other news :o) I bought yet another skein of sock yarn last night at the yarn store while I was there for Charmed Knits ... hey, who can pass up a NEW ADDITION to the store that is only $12 and makes a pair of socks?!?! They only had 6 skeins and between the members of the class, it was all sold out! It is On Your Toes by Kertzer - it has aloe vera in it and I got "Blue Print" for the color.
Because I have so much sock yarn, I have been busy perusing the net and magazines for sock patterns to use it up! So far I have:
- Peppermint Twist in Knit 'N Style Dec. 07 issue for my Tofutsies
- Purl Lace Socks in Knit 'N Style Dec. 07 issue for my Alpaca Sox
- Fawkes from Socktopia.net for my Cherry Tree Hill
- Eleanor on Socktopia.net for my Socks that Rock
Those are definites, there are others I am tossing around, but haven't yet decided on :o)
I won the dishcloth design contest over at Hogwart's Sock/Scarf Kit Swap 3!! You can find the pattern here.
I finished the bag and the other item that I was making for this swap and have it all boxed up!! I hope if I get to work early enough tomorrow I can get to the Post Office before they close and get it on its way!
Speaking of Hogwart's and Harry Potter - I picked up yarn to make the sweater tree ornaments (Jo Sharp DK Wook in a green and burn orange color) that are in Charmed Knits and I hope to get a few of those done before Christmas for various people. At least I can finish a garment of that scale, LOL!!!
I received 2 of 3 stitch marker sets, this set was from Robyn. They are lovely hematite healing beads (which I found out from Robyn) which is so cool!! I love them, thanks Robyn!!
