Good day on the knitting front…

the box opensNot because of the actual knitting, but the knitting acquisition!

First Bunny and I went to Nature’s Yarns to get soles for his slippers. On the way home from there (with a stop at Bob Evans for lunch) we stopped at Uniqities and I got the Fiber Trends pattern for the adult clogs. When we got home I set to work sewing on the soles, and discovered I just didn’t like the way they fit on the slippers and the way they looked. So, back out to Fairfax where I exchanged the soles for some yarn.

Wow, look at this loot!Not long after I got home the mail arrived with delights galore! The new shipment from The Yarn Pirate’s Booty Club, which is just great, and a box from my secret pal!! The photos on this post are all of the great package she sent that included:

  • one skein of Noro Silk Garden Sock in a blue, green, purple colorway that is just great
  • one skein of Araucania Ranco in shades of pinks
  • one skein of Scarlet Fleece Silk & Ivory in browns, pinks, and purples
  • Cookie A’s Gothic Spire pattern

It’s a great package! The yarns are all really nice and I already have ideas. The Skittles, well let’s just say the snack drawer at school will be well stocked 🙂

Skittles!!Thanks so much to Stephanie of the Knitting Nurse… we’ll have to meet up sometime since she lives nearby, and I think she works at an LYS!

PS: photos of the yarns are on my stash page on Ravelry already!


  1. Nice stash acquisition!

  2. Glad you enjoyed your gifts. I was not a great pal, I know. I tried to make up for it with some good prezzies! Please come by Knit Happens whenever you get the chance. We’d love to have you!

  3. Note to self: identify location of “snack drawer at school.”

    Awesome yarn haul, I must say.
