Yarny goodness!

My package arrived from Jo today -- it's gorgeous!! Two skeins of worsted in lush greens plus brown, blue, and gold! We traded 200g, and the skeins she dyed for me are siblings: same colors, different techniques. The color selections couldn't have been a better match for me; it's like having my favorite cabin in the woods right here in my stash!!!

She sent two patterns: a lovely little handbag pattern from DROPS, and a moebius scarf/shrug from KnitPicks.

She also included a bar of handmade soap, and some hot cocoa!

I can't wait to knit with it, as so on as I decide what to make!!
