More goodies

poison

Wow - the week has been long, tiring, a plain drag - but the mail has been delightful! I traded Wollmeise with the Knitting Bandit - my Fratello for her Wild Thing Poison #5 - a great trade - but she snuck in a bunch of wonderful surprises on me - what a pick me up, bloggers are so darn nice. She sent along a book to read (I'm doing great on the 52 books self-challenge!), a bag of gummies - only 4 Weight Watchers Points if you're counting;), some cool pattern tamers and some chart tape - I haven't tried either of those last two things, so I am thrilled to add them to my knitting bag! The generosity was touching. Thank you!

Generally, I am thinking Michigan bloggers are just nice, cool people. I mean you have The Plucky Knitter (who has a new online shop), Cinnamonamon, The Knitting Bandit of course, flint knits (I think), Knitterella and Knittingma - I know I am missing many, but recently I have run into a lot of nice MI peeps. There are great bloggers everywhere of course, I have just had a rash of really nice contacts with MI and wanted to shout out.

I also got a couple other great packages...

this probably needs little explanation - Lowenzahn, Mitternacht and Miss May.

And the first installment of the Woolgirl Sock Club - what a treat.

Gorgeous yarn from Mama Llama inspired by Georgia O'Keefe, notecards, a cool bag, a stitch marker and a great pattern - it's a great start!

I hope to have an actual project to show soon, I have been a slacker knitter this week - I have been fiercely dragging this week - change of weather? bad night sleep? could it be staying up until midnight reading on a work night is a bad idea? good grief.

What gorgeous goodies. Acquiring so much lovely knitting potential is often a really good substitute for actual knitting.

How'd you score more Wollmeise?!?! Lucky you!

Michigan is a very nice place. Being a native Michigander myself, I have to agree that it's full of nice people! ;)

YEAH on the Wollmeise! I also belong to Woolgirl sock club, and it is by far, my fave, as Jen is so great at the whole thing! I am discovering the world of Georgia O-Keefe!
I have the same problem with reading late at night. Too bad work interferes with my wants/desires! :) HA! HA!

Beautiful yarn that should keep you knitting one gorgeous project after the next! And how does one purchase Wollmeise? It's like some underground secret...

What lovely mail you've gotten! Of course the Wollmeise is amazing, but that swap package is so nice, as is the Woolgirl club package. Lucky lady!

And thanks so much for the shout out! You're such a sweetheart. :)
