Hey Andrea,
Am so glad you like it! I hope you can find something to do with the ultra bright yarn! I saw you commented on that color on my flickr.
Here's a pic of me in the hat before it went in the mail.

I am ever so grateful to have a patient and kind partner. Elizabeth (whyme81687) did an amazing job!


Here is some KnitPicks yarn she dyed with Kool-aid! I adore the colors, and I couldn't be happier =3


She crocheted a daisy pillow! She did such a good job and I think it looks fantastic on my sky blue covers!


Some Christmas goodies my partner was kind enough to include which included some cute mittens which I promptly put on my tree and forgot to photography >.<

mmmm, gotta love that snowman poop =]

Bad day. I had to drive my mother to the doctor because her O2 sat dropped to 95% and she's been sick all week. I was 15 minutes late getting to the post office to ship Elizabeth's package (What post office is closed at 12:30 on a saturday during the holiday season???). And I almost got hit 3 times by people who can't drive and are scrambling for presents for Christmas.

Elizabeth's package made my day =] I guess that's the best way to receive it lol

Thank you so much.

And I plan to ship monday I PROMISE

Oh, woot indeed! I'm having what can be called the cr*ppiest week (month? season?) ever, and my silver lining came yesterday in the form of a package from inle_rah.
My goodness. It is just so freakin' awesome!

First of all, a batik handbag in colors that just lift my spirits so much, and koolaid for my nasty little dyeing habit:

And another lovely handknit bag, made from silknoil, with a batik lining, and as a bonus, York's peppermint patties, which are probably on the top ten list of things I miss about the US.


And last but most certainly not least, the most beautiful skein yarn I have ever laid eyes upon (posing with a bottle of Eucalan, which may well become another regular item on the list of things my dad will have to bring on his visits):

Of course I had to take it from both sides:

It is so soft and beautiful. When my husband suggested I make something for one of the kids I said that this one is for me me me. Not sharing. No way.

Thank you so very much for spoiling me absolutely rotten. It couldn't have come at a better time!

Such a fantastic package! LOVE the handspun!  Grin

It totally seemed like everything was working against me before I sent out. Then my EMT course ended and everything became nice and quiet. I was like "WHERE was all this before hand?!"

So! Elizabeth received my package but due to some technical difficulties I will post the pics :]
My package had 5 things.
A red market bag! Which I love because I use mine all the time.


A pair of fingerless mitts! =3

Don't mind the stupid modeling. I just really love Ravelry :]

A mug cozy! My own design, in which I am very proud of lol


And the handspun! A 2-ply corriedale/merino blend. I forgot the yardage. It was a lot for me though. Especially on a spindle but maybe I'm just a wimp.


I also gave her a little mini-skein but I didn't take a picture 3=

I really had a lot of fun with this (even with the locusts and boils) and I had a fab partner! My first swap couldn't have been any better :] Thanks!

I received from yberry today!  The yarn is beautiful, and I got what looks like an interesting book, and a huge and interestingly constructed bag.  Unfortunately, I left my camera at a New Year's party, so I can't take pictures until this weekend, but wanted to share my thanks right away.  Smiley

Wow! I'm glad you got it, and glad that you liked it.

The bag was my take on Cat Bordhi's Moebius Quiver. I didn't make it with feltable yarn, and I'll admit that I wish I had more time to put some lining in the bag and some sort of closure at the top... But if I had tried to get that done, the package would probably still be stuck with me.

The yarn was my first ever handpainted (so far I had only dyed solids or kettle dye), and it was a lot of fun to make. The colorway is named Harrell, after jazz musician Tom Harrell who inspired the colors with his music. It's a washable DK merino, 129 yds per 50 gr skein, 4 skeins.

I bookcrossed "Tuff", with the hopes that it gets passed on after a good read.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with the yarn (and how it knits up, I resisted temptation to keep some for myself).

The photo doesn't really show the color well - the blue is actually teal and purple. I really enjoyed the handpainting, and have been waiting patiently for time to do some more... in the meantime my ideas notebook is fattening with sketches of colorways I would like to make...
