I finally received my package from Rachpie22! I got it on my way to work, and was unable to restrain myself from opening it before I could take pictures of the box. The packaging it arrived in was full of what my boyfriend called "some secret knitting code" ^.^
So here is the ball, as it arrived in my happy little paws. I love the colors! And the pattern, a felted cabled clutch. I've never cabled or felted before, and I've been dying to try! It's absolutely perfect.
It also, mercifuly contained a few outside goodies, or goodies on the edge that I fished out while I was at work (I had 8 hours to stare at this thing!)
There's some lovely grey yarn, cabling needles for the pattern, lipgloss, measuring tape (how did you know I just lost mine?!) chocolate, a teeny little magic 8 ball, a frog pen, and super yummy smelling lavender soap!
So I started frantically knitting away last night. And here is my progress at night's end. The yarn ball remains mysterious and has not given me ANY more presents =( I do see a Hello Kitty head peeking out though!
I also got a little impatient and managed to pull this Hello Kitty bag out of said yarn ball, (immediatley after the last picture) and it is a perfect yarn ball traveling bag!
Initially, I was planning on unraveling my yarn ball the minute I got it, but I was so excited about the pattern I decided to try. Anybody else been good?
