Coffee House Blues

Bridget http://caffeinatedknitter.wordpress.com sent me self-striping yarn she dyed turquoise and brown. It is really stunning yarn--and my very first hand-dyed, self-striping yarn!! I can't wait to start knitting it up--Jaywalkers, here I come!
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!
