It hurts me when you get the lint

Ok, so I got my swap package today from Nikki (sfgwife on rav)! OMG my package was so incredibly AWESOME! It took me 20 minutes to link all the yarn she got me in ravelry!! Sheesh!

first of all, everything came in this awesomesauce mini suitcase that I am totally in love with. I think it’s the coolest thing I own now. And on top of the awesomesauce suitcase? The wollemeise. That's right. She sent me WOLLEMEISE baby!! She is so awesome! The color is “Red Hot Chili” and it’s reds and oranges and a little yellow and it’s so pretty and I’ve been petting it all freaking day. I’m in love.

I also got all of this stuff!!!

Which includes: A copy of Knit 1 magazine and Interweave knits, some stitch markers (are they handmade? They’re pretty!), a set of Harmony dpns from knitpicks, a tape measure (thanks! I needed that!!!), a pumpkin candle, one of those crocodile cases that zips closed, AND a ton of yarn!! Including Rio de la plata sock yarn (which I can’t find a link for…) in a marbled stone color, a ball of Regia stretch in burgundy, a ball of debbie bliss prima in a red color, a ball of Kauni lace weight that’s in a natural color, a ball of Sock-ease in Lemon Drop, Gedifra fashion trend sportivo (I had never heard of this, and it’s soooo soft!!!) In blues, pinks, yellows, and other colors, AND part of a ball of Bernat Sox in Hippy Hot, which will be cute for baby stuff.

Whew!! It's so AMAZING! I love it. Love love love it. Everything. I'm in love with it. All of it.

Thank you sooo much Nikki!!!

In an unrelated story, I claimed this last week on KYS. It's a gorgeous drop spindle!

I love it, and I'm going to learn to spin on it. I'm trying now. Well, not right now. Later probably. :)

Oh, and I've also finished Chart three on Sheherazade.

I'm like a woman obsessed lately, with the lace. I also worked on Icarus yesterday and today. Loving the lace. :) I'm gonna get back to it now. It and the Wollemeise.
