Swap package from Emma

Here are the pictures: The awesome bag,
The cute stitch markers: (I couldn't get a very good pic of these :(), all of the other goodies, and Cami enjoying the bag (which was quickly removed from her enjoyment)

Owl arrived from Emma Diggory

And I am feeling SOOO spoiled! What an awesome package!!! I can't even believe how nice it was. Here's some pics...but let me describe the wonders that were in store for me - first and foremost, the most fantastic knit and felted bag - a BIG bag that can fit all my knitting, not just socks! 4 balls of great Rowan yarn for the Clock Sock pattern in Folk Socks - she gave me the Folk Socks book, with a HP bookmark to mark my place!! This is awesome, because I'm in the SCA and I've heard great things about this book from the person who taught me how to knit. The yarn is in a nice rich red, which has made my husband claim it as HIS yarn to make HIS socks. Also, the stitch markers she sent me were just great - they had dragons and trees, lions and Gryffindor crests!! I love them! Plus, there were a ton of other goodies, like candy and a hand embroidered Goblet of Fire stitch marker tin - OH! and a hand made Gryffindor Needle Case, which I really needed!! YAY!!! Emma, you really, really outdid yourself!!! I hope I'm not forgetting anything - I might be, there was just so much stuff in my package! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!

Contest Prizes

Hey, everyone! Just wanted to let you know that I'm still planning on sending out the prizes that are due for this swap. My finances have been unbelievable bad these last couple of months. Even scrounging up gas and grocery money has been hard. So, please don't give up hope!!! I will get those out to you.

Thank You, Laurie Ann!!

Upon arriving home after a long, cold, tiring day I found a package on my front step. What a great reward for making it through another Monday. I love what you sent me, Laurie Ann! There is GORGEOUS yarn from Knit Piks in Ravenclaw soft! A set of Brittany needles in size 3 and wonderful ebony needles in size 1. Brittany is one of my favorite brands. I've never tried the ebony needles so it will be fun to have something new to experiment with.

And then there is the book Knitting on the Road. I immediately had to sit down and perruse that. I think I've already picked out the socks I am going to knit with the Ravenclaw yarn. I SO want to start tonight but there are those Christmas gifts I have to finish first! I'm still a novice sock knitter, but this book makes me aspire to be an "expert". Laurie Ann also included some beautiful Ravenclaw stitch markers. I really love the deep colors in the markers.
But...the very, very BEST part of the whole packages were the MINNESOTA VIKINGS STITCH MARKERS!!! YES!!!! I can take them to the games with me and they will match my purple sweatshirt and purple and gold beads and Vikings hat! (Skoal, Vikings! Let's win this game!)
You are the best, Laurie Ann! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
