Without further ado, may I present my wonderful package from superhooker. Like I said, she won the speed round, and I got a ton of pretty awesome stuff. Picture heavy because it needs to be.
Here's a shot of the balls and all the extras:
-3 bonus skeins of yarn, one of which (the green/blue/yellow) was hand-dyed by superhooker herself
-2 dessert cookbooks
-1 Lucky Bird Foot (a la the Lucky Rabbit's Foot, but not a real bird foot - that's cruel!)
-size 35 knitting needles, which came in handy for winding my yarn back up. I used them like a nostepinne.
I requested yarn for the Argosy scarf from Knitty, so she sent two skeins of Noro Silk Garden Lite. Here's another shot of the MYBs themselves:
And here's a photo of everything in the balls unwrapped:
Contained in the MYBs:
-Several button rings - the rose and pressed flower ones are my favorites.
-Button bobby pins - pansies, silver/burgundy buttons, and 20's glamour girls
-Tons of ceramic and plastic buttons - the yellow stars remind me of the invincibility stars from Super Mario Brothers.
-A bag of vintage sewing notions - tons of snaps/closures, some suspender clips, bias tape, and a belt fixture, among other things.
-Lollipops and hard candy
-A knit washcloth in a honeycomb pattern
-A hand-carved panda stamp (AHHH!)
-Recipe cards with cupcakes on 'em
-Teal-topped straight pins
-A pincushion/sewing kit
-A small skein of super-soft green yarn. What fiber is that, SH?
-A Buddha magnet (funny because my friends call me Dashboard Buddha - they always get awesome parking spots with me in the car)
-A couple of stitch markers
-A silver medallion
And here's one last shot of the washcloth, my favorite rings, and the Lucky Bird Foot.
Thank you so much, superhooker! I love everything, and I hope you love your package as much as I love mine!
