ECF: New threads


Laceweight yarn prize

I came home to two yarny packages in the mail!

Before we went to Boston, I happened to win a prize over at Archives on the Edge. She and her sweetie just celebrated their 7th anniversary, and to celebrate on her blog, she offered up a yummy skein of laceweight yarn in the 7th anniversary color: off-white. It's dreamy! She also included some chocolate (ooo, green & black's, and Nestle crunch!) and some candy from Bakersfield, CA. I'm greatly amused at the path this candy is taken. But, sorry, candy, this is the end of the road for you! And the yarn is so soft, I think I'll just pet it for a while and dream of a lace shawl. Maybe I'll get it done in time for my 7th anniversary....)

I also found myself drooling several times over the Yarn Harlot's new habit. I emailed. I PayPaled. And this arrived. I'm in heaven just looking at the grosgrain ribbon.

Yay for packages from Nova! I totally adored that fancy chocolate...it is well on its way to becoming my new bad habit.

I love the Dream in Color baby sweater! So cute, and just the sort of thing that works best as a kit.

The kit is yummy! I want one myself but am avoiding ordering 'cause I have way too many projects in need to finish first. I don't even know anyone having a baby, but I feel the need to have one of those cardigans! *sigh*
Looking forward to seeing yours and living through your adventure.

I really want one of those kits. I bought a skein of their smooshy sock yarn and it's really nice.
