A book, bookmark and a medium sized craft to go along with it?
sounds great!  that way the craft could possibly go along with the book etc.
23  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Magic Yarn Ball Round 2 on: December 09, 2006 07:33:21 AM
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?

I always make my socks from the top down...I haven't yet figured out how to do it the other way around  Wink

I just found out that knitting socks from the toe-up is a bit easier (you just work short rows for both the toe and heel, & there's no gusset to pick up & whatnots) but the heel doesn't come out quite as snazzy, I don't think.  I think the heel on those socks is nice lookin' so I figured I'd ask.

the anticipation is going to kill me!
after checking the mail three times today, that dreaded "please pick up your parcel at the office" slip arrived.  so, *super* excitedly, i ran over to the office only to discover... they're closed today- thursday dec. 7th and won't open until two hours later than normal tomorrow.
Well, my boyfriend thinks we could easily break-in, but I think I'm going to wait until 10:00am MST, and pick it up then.  Ugh... that's like another twenty hours.

Some the the yarn stores in my area carry some super yummy smelling wool wash I've used on some socks I made last year. 
Great job on the socks!  The ribbing is a great touch, and I love the colors.  My only question is did you make them toe-up or from the top down?
