I received from Bourgeois on Saturday and I have been obsessed with the package since I have opened it, thus the reason for taking so long to post pictures.

She sent a great package, I didn't get a shot of everything together.  But here are the instructions.  It includes a pattern for making a simple hat, an icord, a yarn covered bangle, and instructions with pictures on what the knitting in the round should look like.  But she also threw in a great book on knitting stitches that I can practice now.



Here are the tools she sent, a set of double ended knitting needles,  a bangle, a measuring tape, a darning needle, and circular knitting needles, but where did they go?



They are already in use and working on the hat project!  Told you I was obsessed, I literally had to tear myself away to take pictures.  The red yarn did not photograph well at all, but it's a great color and fiber to work with.  I also learned how to use a stitch marker as well! woot woot.



Here is another great yarn that she sent, a superwash merino.  Such a great color to work with.



My tools came in this great box, it will be useful to keep my knitting stuff seperate from my crochet stuff.




Thank you Bourgeois!  I really appreciate the package you sent me and cannot wait to finish my first project!  Grin

I'm so happy you like everything!  I had them wind up that tweedy red yarn for you at the LYS because I hoped you'd use it first.   I'm so impressed with how much you've done so far!  I can't wait to see the finished hat.  Too bad its summer, you'll have to wait to really get to wear it.

Wonder-under is God's gift to mankind. It is double-sided fusible web, meaning that both sides can be fused to something with an iron. 1 side comes paper-coated so it doesn't stick to the iron when you fuse the first side (it's also handy to draw or trace on). Wonder-under is great for not having your appliques move when sewing.

I received from NotKnit a few days back and have just now been able to post pictures. She sent me a crochet kit - with instructions/patterns for filet crochet and for baby afghans (my baby is 11 weeks old Smiley), some pretty yarn and thread and a teeny hook for the filet crochet.



I'm excited to try filet crochet and to make my little boy a blanket with this yarn.

Thank you NotKnit!
