Super Swag Saturday **spoiler**

I got my Scout's Swag yesterday (scroll down, I want to hide it from those who may want to keep the alure) and I was so surprised and thrilled with the gifties. A cool knitting stamp that was designed by Scout herself - I was so wanting to find this stamp, who knew Scout was going to take care of that for me. Also included was a Stampin Up stamp pad and some cards and envelopes to personalize. I think this is totally creative and way out of the box for essentially a "yarn club" - thank you! The yarn is Je T'Aime - pretty pretty - I am not typically into black but when you pair it with my favorite pink and purple - winner winner chicken dinner!

And then I also recently received my final installment of the Rockin' Socks Club. I have never knit anything by Cat Bordhi, so I was excited to see that she designed the complimentary pattern. The yarn is Bella Coola, a lovely transition of blues. I saw sock goddess Yarnissima using it for a new pattern, Spina Di Pesce...so I may save the Bordhi pattern for something else.

I am about to finish the toe of my first '08 Yarntini stockinette sockie - I think I will march forward and cast on the second right away - a pair could be in the near future! What is on your needles?

I'm excited to try the stamp. So far that's one craft I haven't gotten into yet. So it'll be fun to play around with. Your single stamp looks great!

Great stamp!

Hmm. What's on my needles. A pair of plain Jane socks and then up next a pair of either Yarntini vintage socks or Sknitches in Seriously.

What fun!

Very nice Scout's swag! I really like this last STR, but will use it for something else, not that pattern too. On my needles..um..socks, hats, sweater...too much!
