My PRGE pal rocks again!

prge

Lindsay of Storm Moon Knits spoiled me again! She sent me two skeins of sock yarn!

First a skein that she dyed herself, I'm so flattered to get handmade things - she is a great indie dyer, the depth of colors is more amazing in person...the richness reminds me of Wollmeise.

And then a skein by Neighborhood Fiber Company - it is a bit reminiscent of Jitterbug to me - I love purple, the colorway is gorgeous! I had just seen this yarn somewhere and added to my "gotta have it" list - how auspicious to find it in my mailbox! The colorway is named after a neighborhood in Washington DC - it is super sproingy (the yarn, not the neighborhood, as far as I know).

Other goodies included some great notecards (knitted zombies are quite hilarious) and a perfect little cake of soap in the shape of a sheep - from the Maryland Sheep and Wool Show - so I was there - if entirely vicariously!

May is a great month for me - between Mother's Day and my birthday I feel like a bit of a Rock Star (which reminds me - I beat all of the songs at Medium on Guitar Hero...*blush*) - and then I had a great swap partner, am hearing rumors of goodies being put in the mail to me from blogfriends, I won a contest (didn't I recently report I didn't have luck - oh, but this is my month - haha!), and - don't quote me - but it looks as though spring may have sprung at last - omg, I wish it were May all year!;)

psst - I am knitting away on a second sock - omg, your read that right - a second sock! More on that later!

WOW - very pretty yarn! Lucky girl!
I love May too - it happens to be my birthday month as well! I think the leaves on the trees must know that my birthday is near, because they seem to come out in full bloom before my birthday. It's so beautiful!
PS - try Dancing Leaf. You won't be disappointed!

You got some nice swag! I recently made socks (and, ahem, panties) out of Neighborhood Fiber Co. and I LOVED it. SO sproingy. I love the colorway of yours...and my husband used to live in Adams Morgan!
