I have not received my yarn ball yet, but I understand it's on the way.  I did get my pattern just last night.  I will certainly post here as soon as my MYB arrives!
And thanks for all your work to the organizers. Smiley

So, how many of you have started knitting or crocheting your items? Any finishes?

I've started on my first sock but have ripped it out twice and need to start again. I've decided that working with 5 needles to start a sock is just too floppy for me right now so I'm going to try again using just 4 needles for the first inch before I add in the 5th needle. I'm leaving for a monthlong trip in a week and a half so will not be able to finish the sock and it's twin for a while.

I have actually started on a scarf with the pretty white yarn that I received and added on some ruffles yarn. I have taken part of it  out about twice and I am about to do it again. This is my second project and my gauge is really tight.

I've received!!! This morning!  I think I scared the postie... I almost leapt at him with hugs, but decided my springyness had scared him enough  Grin (he's used to me grunting at him, I'm usually getting up at the same time he delivers, but I must have know this morning cause I was up early!)

I've taken LOTS of pics, but the 'duplicate' ones I'll link to to try and save peoples connections if it's needed!

Is it a hat? a placemat?


No! it's a market bag!! I'm trying to ban plastic bags from the flat (aside from the food delivery ones, but they don't count, they're lovely colours so I knit with them!)


Next to the box, so you can see how big the base is!

The yarn ball itself:  Pinkleo sent natural yarn, and KOOL AID!!! I'm really quite excited, I'm now actually a bit bummed that we've got guests this weekend, I wanna cancel and spend it messing about with kool aid!!  (The SO made me promise that I'd let him try and sip before I dunked the wool in it  Cheesy).  Oh, and it meant I HAD to unwrap everything, there's no way I could've dyed the yarn whilst it was still wrapped...

My pattern is for socks, stripy ankle socks, which means I get a new pair of "house socks", I'd be trying to deny to myself that I didn't really like my current pair, but I don't, I might re-gift those now I've got an excuse to make another pair!  Grin


Everything together (except the shrinky dink papers)


Non-crafted stuff; from the top left... bracelet kit (pink! yay!) 2 stitching kits (1 picture, which might be used on my new-being-knitted hoodie, and 1 alphabet one), AWESOME notecards with a blue rose on! (1 of my 2 favourite flowers), Kool aid! (OMGOMGOMGOMG!), elephant tape measure (really, so cute), duck fizzy smelly thing (assuming it's a bath bomb thing! made the whole thing smell so good, heh), bamboo circs (MUCH love here, I can get circs, I can get bamboo, for some reason my local shops don't do bamboo circs?!), badge pin set things (aaargh me 'artys), stickers (yay, stationary!!), iron on shiny things (well, shiny!).  There's also a pack of shrinky dink paper, yet another thing we struggle to get over here!


Stitch markers, SO CUTE!  I LOVE russian dolls


these came at just the right time, I've been using really annoying faux stitch markers one of which is too big/heavy and one too small!  I kinda feel like golidlocks....

Stitch markers next to the Kool Aid, for size reference

Really pretty arm warmers/gloves!  I've been meaning to make some "summer" ones, I love wearing arm warmers but my current ones are 100% wool and quite long, with cables, so are AWESOME in winter, but really too warm for brighter days!  And, well, this being the UK, the weather's really changeable, so it's a good idea to have some in my bag!

both together

French Press cosy: I've not tried it on yet (I managed to spill coffee all over the place, including on the glass bit, so I'll try it later when I've done the washing up!)


pink quill!  I feel I need to write grand letters now  Grin


ribbon bookmark; this is another "been meaning to do", but well, it's never quite happened!  Roll Eyes


Leather Thimble Ring; I'm fascinated by this!  I didn't realise until reading the letter that it wasn't just a normal ring, I'll have to experiment on how to wear it! heh


Some of the kits!
yaaaaargh
stitching stuff

LOTS of stuffing that was packed around the ball, I feel some stuffies coming on...

I'm now off to the supermarket, with my market bag, and I think I'll wear the wrist warmers cause it looks a bit blowy out there!  Grin

you should try the magic loop method using a long circular needle. i havent done it yet but ive seen jewelaroni use it more than once and she now swears by it and wont use dpns.



mojen - that package is awesome! pinkleo was a great angel!

I just received my magic yarn ball from fluffybaka!  I will be able to fully check it out tomorrow and take pictures then, but for the moment just let me say it looks absolutely amazing! 
Fluffybaka, you're great and you can be my swap partner any time! Wink

I had originally thought that I would make my project and unwrap the ball as I go along, but I don't think that's gonna happen.  I have a couple of huge projects with a deadline that I need to start on right away, so I'm gonna unwrap my ball and probably start my pattern in a month or so.

nooooo, EVIL magic loop!!  Cheesy  I've tried and tried with magic loop, but still can't get it to not do that horrid laddering thing.  I find it easier, with DPNs, to start with it on a table/desk so you can rest the non-working DPNs

Though, tbh, magic loop DOES look cool, I'm just a bit too clumsy and impatient  Roll Eyes
