The package was so creatively put together--Bridget sent the yarn inside this coffee cup, and included some Kona coffee (YUM!) and she pre-strung the yarn with Czech glass beads. I am blown away by the carefully themed package.
Bridget has an etsy shop http://yarndulgent.etsy.com that I understand she will be updating with more yarn soon.
Thank you so much Bridget--I really like the entire package and it was just perfect for me!
Thank you so much, Meghan! And the tea feels great on my sore throat! :-)

She also sent two pretty postcards and a bar of honey/oatmeal/goats milk soap.
Thank You Barbara! I love it!
Sarah was my partner, and she was nice enough to include a mix CD with the yarn.
Meanwhile, I'm still untangling my yarn. Actually, that's kind of misleading. Entrelac was nice enough to invite me to her knitting group so she could work on untangling it for me. In fact, she actually took the skein home with her to continue working on it. So it might be a while, but I should be able send mine to Lady O before the deadline.

The timing was perfect; I was very much in need of a treat! Cathy sent me a lovely note, chocolates (I'm hiding them, not sharing with the boys!) stitch markers, beads and hand lotion which is hand crafted near her in addition to YARN!
The yarn is perfect. Lovely shades of blue and teal which are just right and I don't know how she managed it but the yarn is my favorite type: Merino/Silk blend! I love yarns that combine wool and silk, love the sheen, the texture and the drape of them! I plan to design a pattern to knit with these socks, I just have to come up with just the right stitch for the yarn.
Thank you so much Cathy!
I really love the colors! This picture doesn't do my yarn justice. The shades of blue and green are beautiful. Thank you so much Rachel, the yarn is perfect.

My lovely hand-dyed yarn from Melissa came today! Hooray!
First the anticipation....
and here it is!
Isn't it purty? The colors are warm but muted, like a soft flannel shirt. And that's exactly what this yarn feels like: so soft to the hand. Mmmm, cozy.
Thanks, Melissa! I love it! This will make some wonderful socks!

So this actually arrived in the mail on Friday, but I was camera-less until the hubby remebered to bring it home from the office. I am so psyched to start knitting some pretty easter socks!

Left Hand Pinkie was created for several purposes, the main being to feature fiber related items to the public. I also wanted a place online that I could call my own. My name is Sheilah and I live in Texas.
Here are some goodies from Left Hand Pinkie. Above is some hand dyed merino and below is some hand dyed and hand spun yarn. Aren't they just gorgeous?!?!
