I got my mitt kit!!

Today my mitt kit came - it is always so wonderful to open the mailbox and have it crammed full with some knitful goodness! My partner Cassandra, send me a wonderful bunch of things to make the Fetching mitts - I kind of love making these, so it will be right up my alley to make some more!! Great yarn choices too!! Also needles and a cable needle to make them up, a candy bar to give me sustenance while I knit, spiced cider packets and a handmade handled tote bag. Strange enough my friend Gramknits gave me a cider packet to try yesterday since I love it so much! Now I have a whole box to covet! Thank you pal! And to Scout J and Beverly for putting it all together.

I also put together my last Secret Pal 9 package today - a collection of things for my pal to try knitting socks. Isn't this little sock darling?

I had to get some of these teeny blockers from the Loopy Ewe after Yarn Pirate blogged about them. Clever! This little socky knit up in front of Grey's Anatomy - seriously. If only real socks were so quick!

Lastly, I got some Yarn Ahoy lace weight yarn - in "pumpkin curry" doesn't that sound delicious? It makes me imagine a warm salt glazed pottery bowl of soup. Now to narrow my shawl choices, Ene from Scarf Style, Casino from Knitspot or the Lace Leaf Shawl from Fiber Trends - the latter looks fairly simple with the repetitive repeat and I have this leaf fetish...Any votes?

Great package!

The pumpkin curry yarn is gorgeous! Whichever shawl you choose will be beautiful with it.

Love the little sock and blocker - I think I'll have to get me some of those blockers. Too cute :)

The pumpkin curry yarn is beautiful! I lean towards Lace Leaf, personally. I have some Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran to make a scarf with, it's so soft. I also have some coming from eBay for socks.

Lace Leaf all the way!! That pumpkin color is gorgeous. Okay, so you know, I just ordered 3 of those keychains and I would have ordered more but that's all they had. You give me the best ideas and I love it. We should get together to knit sometime soon.
Thanks Stacey! susie
