Thanks SP!

I have been very busy (even had to miss SLK again last night) with some work that I’m doing outside of school as well as the normal “school might end sometime soon and it would be nice if all the papers were graded” work so it was a great pick-me-up to get a package yesterday.

Everybody sing, “white paper packages tied up with yarn, these are a few of my favorite things!”

What fun a package, there were five different little packages. Each one was wrapped in white tissue paper and tied up with fun yarn.

The first package I opened had some cute notecards, all knitting themed! Since I’m moving into thank you note season #2 (season #1 is at Christmas) they will come in most handy.

The next three packages were all yarn! Three balls of Diakeito Diacosta (color 220). It’s not a yarn I know anything about, but it is totally cool! Anyone used it? I think it screams for lace so what can I make with 447 yards of this? I would love suggestions!

Finally there’s a great looking book Knit Fix. I’m sure it will be very handy!

Thanks so much SP! This was a great package!!

On another note I want to knit something little to send to the woman I have been working with on this outside project. It needs to be a quick knit and from my stash. I’m thinking about dishcloths, but do you think a non-knitter would think it was strange to get dishcloths as a gift?

  1. I think dishcloths are a good idea. I like what this chick did here:

  2. Oooh, packages! Fun!

    I got a package today too, but it was one I sent myself. My very first skein of Blue Moon sock yarn… I’ll post pics sometime next week. I’m very proud. 🙂

  3. I’ve given dishcloths to non-knitting (but crafty) friends and they have loved them. Though a couple refuse to use them as dishcloths declaring them “too nice” LOL! They use them as trivets instead.

  4. Thanks Beth! My package arrived yesterday and it was just the thing to pick me up while I’m sick. 😀 That soap was an instant hit with myself and my boyfriend. He just wants it to sit in the bathroom, not to be used! 😀 It smells so wonderful! And that wool is squishy and so soft. Thanks a million!

  5. Now I’ve got that song stuck in my head! Nice package!

    I’ve given dishcloths to lots of non knitters. They seem occasionally nonplussed but they seem to really like them. That and nice washcloths w/special soaps.
