So good for your first time -- I'm a bit worried about my project now.

I received a wonderful swap package from LizzieMcGuire! Thank you so much!




There are six skeins of yarn. Each with a little label with the name and some information on it.

Two skeins of natural colored sheep wool with little specs of red and orange wool. It's called "Herbst" (the German word for fall) and I love the colors, I like fall in general, so I guess it's the perfect yarn for a quick fall project. I'm going to make fingerless gloves.

The other yarn is made of the softest merino wool. I keep running it through my fingers, because it's so nice to touch.
My first idea for this yarn was something like those:

http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/no/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=104&d_id=43&lang=no
http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/no/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=98&d_id=14&lang=no

but I had to notice, that I can't wear this color to close to my face Sad.

Any other suggestions for this wonderfull yarn? I definitely need new slippers (which I allways knit myself) but I guess this would be a waste.

She also sent me a stitchmarker with the cutest little sheep. But I couldn't get a good picture of it.
Do you have one, Lizzie?

They are simply called collar. I think neckwarmer is even better! There are some translations on this website but I never check since I speak Norwegian. I didn't find translations for those, but for something similar if anyone is interested

Thanks for the reminder hun! Sorry, I totally got your pm, thanks for being on top of things! I went to bed at 8 fri night (worked 10 hr shift, got off at 6pm, ate dinner and went to bed!) My quasi-arthritis was acting up, so to bed I went insanely early! And I left the house at 930 this morning to run a couple errands, ended up hanging out with different friends/shopping/going to Greek festival, and got home at 1030! So, in effect I'm been a slacking organizer lol!

One week to ship out ladies! It looks like a lot of us (myself included!) are using this extra week to finish things up! Next Friday is final ship out date. I can't wait to see all the good stuff that is gonna go up in the gallery! Please PM me if you have any questions/concerns. Also, please remember to send a thank you (at least a card) to your mentor. If this goes out after the item send out that is ok.

just got PM from Pixiewhip who states, I just received my package and I absolutely love EVERYTHING.   The bag is especially gorgeous.  I put the hat on immediately (actually I also put the basket on my head, thinking it to be a hat, but then I read your little letter.)   Thank you so much for the gorgeous package.  She misplaced her usb cable to upload pics, luck i took pics.

just wanted everyone to know that the outer bag was done by me grandmother some years ago before her stroke*  the squares were not being used.  so i thought i would share a bit of my heritage with Pixiewhip*  all other items were made by me*


Here are the items that i sent Pixiewhip:



This is the inside of the bag!!
