one of three no more

This is the beautiful Yarn that I received from Kate from Canada. My hand dye yarn is on its way to sunny California! But alas, I won't be participating in the next step because it is not fair to the great participants who meet deadlines. I kinda thought I might step on my foot with this one. The yarns are all beautiful and Kate your yarn will be a wonderful pair of yummy socks for me!! If I finish them while the blog is still open to me I will post pics here. But of course they will be posted on http://www.knitkharma.com/ Live, laugh and love your knitting!!

I got my sock yarn from my swap pal, and is it fabulous. Not only did I get a gorgeous purply/cyan/magenta sock yarn, but she sent me stich markerd, a dpn holder, a sample of Euculan, a sock blocker keychain and a latern moon bag in my favorite lime green. I just loved it!! She definitely went above and beyond. Thanks so much!!

I am an Evil Queen

Just so no one thinks that Jessie is a slacker, here is my post from my blog about the lovely yarn that she sent me!

Lookie lookie what I got in the mail a few days ago! It came from my super-nice Hand Dyed Yarn Swap pal Jessica, at
alfiberdreams. I just love it, and she gave it the perfect name:

Evil Queen

Do you think that she knows something about me that I don't? For those of you who are laughing right now, you can just stop it.

Jessica also included a set of beautiful sparkly stitch markers

And some treats (no, I could not get that coffee to stand up by itself!) to make my knitting time even more pleasurable.

Thanks Jessie- I absolutely love it all, and I cannot wait to knit that yarn!
