Loopy's May Shipment

Spoiler Alert - If you haven't received The Loopy Ewe's May sockclub shipment, don't read below.

Here is my sock club package. It included an accessory pouch, loopy peppermints, a poem, & pattern. Most of Loopy's kits include that. They are nice but it also included some bling, a stitch saver (a crochet hook on a key ring for fixing dropped stitches). The yarn is . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Wollmeise . . . yes, I know - envious? It is a custom colorway named Pillars of Fire. It ranges from a deep cardinal red to scarlet & ends with a burnt orange color. Gorgeous!!! I want to cast-on right now but a new sock madness pattern is released Friday morning. I already have 9 WIPS. Must . . resist . . .Wollmeise . . . must . . . resist. . . . . stay . . . strong . . .


Secret Pal

I have a wonderful secret pal. This package was left for me & it includes many wonderful things. I appreciate the thought & effort my pal took to create this package. The candle is very interesting. It is bamboo & tiger lily scented. We enjoyed the aroma around the house. I look forward to reading my books when I have some interrupted time this weekend. It also included sticky notes & a memo holder. Cool beans.

I think my favorite part of my gift was the photos of my own work. I'm not sure how she (or he) got them - maybe through flickr. At first, I though wow, they gave me knitting postcards. Then, a moment or later I realized that it was not just anyone's knitting, it's my knitting. The pictures were put in between the pages of one of the books. Thank you secret pal.

I finished up another pair of Sock Madness socks. I'll post about them & my other WIPs this weekend.
