Okay, so I got part one of my second package! Yay! It was just there leaning against my door when I got home, all cylindrical and lovely and package-y. Yeah. Well, pictures!
Here is the whole package. It's a learn-to-spin kit! Oh, my!
There is a spindle, a bunch of wool batting, and some small samples, two hand-spun yarns, and two little bits of fiber, so lovely and sparkly and just so soft. I adore them. I shall probably just keep them, take them out every so often to rub against my cheek. (btw, I love this site, because I can say something like that, and not get any weird looks. Like how the boy looked at me today when I showed him a picture of a Blythe doll.)
The spindle is so pretty and green. Here is a picture of the top of it:
Thank you so so much, LizzieMcguire! I can't wait to see what else you're sending(Gosh, that sounds greedy!) And I hope you like your (as yet unsent) package.
P.S. As of writing this, I have several yards of rather lumpy, kind of odd-looking 'yarn' on the spindle! Pictures soon to come.
There are postcards, purse-shaped cards, a little rubber stamp made from an eraser, orange chocolate cookies, minty chocolate, fruit candy things. Which happen to be very addictive! Um, burgundy yarn, a glass she painted, a journal and picture frame that she decoupaged, two adorable cow-shaped candles, hand-made soap(smells so yummy!), puffy stickers, beads, earrings, and a German magazine with the coolest little logic puzzles. They are so hard, but so fun. I really want to get good at them!
The lovely little journal and picture frame she decoupaged:
Postcards from Jena, Germany, where she currently resides:
A glass. She painted Tilly and the Wall all the way around! They are my very favorite band!:
This German book with these really cool puzzles. I still haven't got them down completely, but I spent a long time on them yesterday, and am getting it! They are my new sudokus.
Altogether, there was a lot in my package! Thank you so so much, Elisabeth!
So I saw this tutorial for little owls, to be made into a garland. And I'm not sure where. Probably on Whip Up, but I'm too lazy to go through everything there to find it at the mo. So...here are some owls that I made into ornaments for Christmas.
So this is the first pair of socks I actually finished. They're made out of less than one skein of Knitpicks' Gloss, in Cocoa. A very nice, soft yarn. I used the toe-up sock pattern from last summer's Interweave Knits. With a rather unthought-out cable pattern. But I love them. They are my first and favorite socks.
And the cable pattern:
Sorry about the horrid photographs, I really need a new camera.Anywayz, I just wanted to share my first socks with you! Hope you like them.
Kay, so I recieved my first package two days ago, and since I am unable to take pictures, my secret swapper sent along a disc with a couple piccies on it! Which was quite clever of her, so as not to ruin the surprise. See? Yeah, I thought so too.
Anyways, she sent a little wristlet(Which actually is big enough to hold all I like to carry along with me on a daily basis. Not so for many of its ilk.), and the loveliest necklace. I truly <3 it.
Back, with necklace:
So, yeah. This was basically awesome. I love the fabric. And everything. Thank you, dear secret craft partner!
