Soooooooooooo I received my package from sewknitter this morning!!! I can't even begin to express how excited I was, but I guess everyone in this thread can relate! Here are the lovely items I received:
First and foremost was this amazingly well made shrug out of the most beautiful yarn I've ever seen. You can't tell by the photos but it's a beautiful shade of brown with some blue flecks throughout it:
Look at the cable work on the back!!
This is the only action shot I took because it's 90 something degrees and this sweater is definitely quite warm.
Here's a lovely little tatted bookmark, I'm thoroughly impressed with this.
Check out the nifty green stitchmarkers she made me! I didn't even tell her that I needed any! My last set suffered some kind of horrible accident...they're crappy to use now because of it so these came just in time!
In my little swap questionnaire I stated that I wanted ANYTHING amigurumi so she whipped up this lovely little elephant for me. Gotta love his little hat!
My absolute favorite dessert is pineapple upside down cake and to make me feel like one giant one she crocheted this awesome pin/brooch for me! I haven't taken it off since I got it!
EVERYTIME I look at this I laugh!! This has become my absolute favorite thing she sent! He's a nifty little quilty chicken pincushion and I lurrrrvvve him!
This didn't photograph too well against my white bedspread, but it's a little fuzzy mint green mouse that'll never get old or die (like my beloved Maxine).
Ohhhhhhhhhh yeahhhhh...you cannot say that package isn't completely awesome!
I love everything! Looking forward to seeing all of your packages, too!
