Apparently my package got lost in the mail. Sad I'm working on a resend package, but maybe you'll get lucky and it will turn up! Here's what I sent, along with crochet booties and lacy fabrics for your sewing:




Blurry pictures since I didn't have my camera at the time and had to settle with my old old old 2mp camera phone.

I have yarn to remake these... should I? The surprise is ruined but I'm sure you would have loved these. I have one item done (different from these) for the new package and am now thinking about what to do next...

House: Gryffindor (I got sorted on Pottermore lol)
Project Name: astronomy art yarn
Brief Description: 88 yards of polwarth wool plied with glow-in-the-dark thread. add-ins are various yarns (eyelash, ribbon, etc), sequins, stars, etc.

Great yarns! I'm loving all the colors.

Here's what I've been up to...

superwash merino / bamboo / nylon 60/30/10
Dyed and spun by me. I'm knitting it into a lacy scarf as a gift.

This one is finished but it isn't light enough to photo yet. Smiley

Here's a sneak peek of my astrology assignment. I dyed it and will be spinning it to art yarn. I posted this in the most recent fiber friday, linking to this craft-along. Smiley Oh, and I finished getting sorted on Pottermore and ended up in Gryffindor although I was hoping for Ravenclaw.. haha oh well.

Finished this one some time last week... currently working on a second skein (both 4oz+). I'm spinning this for someone who sent me the fiber, which is superwash BFL dyed by bee mice elf.

And this one I just dyed, 100% polwarth wool. It's going to turn into my first art yarn for the HP craftalong.

This is long overdue, I got caught up with finals and such. Here's my amazing package from beccas_song! She got her inspiration straight from my Pinterest boards. Smiley

- panda sleep mask! I got one in another swap but the more, the better. Smiley These really help me sleep since the neighbors across the street keep their side light on and it goes straight through my window and into my face when I lie on my bed. So annoying!
- delicious smelling handmade soap
- AWESOME circuit board wallet
- SUPER CUTE panda camera bag, full of lace (LOVE!), and the spare fabric
- earrings and matching pins. These are SO cool. I have pierced ears and normally don't wear earrings but I HAVE to wear these.


A lovely damask (my favorite print!) clutch/purse:



She also baked me delicious peanut butter chocolate goodies! They're in the fridge right now (the weather is melting HOT right now) so I'll try to get a picture later.

Thank you for everything! Smiley
